My new laptop should arrive tomorrow. The speakers and wireless mouse that I ordered with it came separately, a few days ago. At about the same time, my wife "resurrected" the treadmill as one of her workout options.
I've never owned a wireless mouse before ... and my new one is still in its packaging ... but somehow it made me wonder if there might be a way to catch up on the forum while walking on the treadmill. (If I have to choose between the two, the treadmill is going to lose out every time. )
I asked around at my local electronics club / "makerspace" last night, and got some ideas (PowerPoint mouse, cobble up a Wii controller, etc) but they were either not quite what I wanted, or they would require too much work. Back at home, I did my own "Googling" and found this at http://weramouse.com:
Quite an intriguing idea! It's range is more than 20 feet; it won't register the swinging of my arms like a Wii controller might (someone said you can disable the accelerometers, but I'd still have to do some overall "cobbling"), and it's very compact. Hmmm! Granted, I may have to invest in a fairly large monitor / TV screen so I could read while bobbing up and down, but ...
... has anybody out there ever used one of these?
