The Levitating Mouse Could be a Reality

By on March 4, 2013

The designer, Vadim Kibardin , created a levitating mouse which was made to prevent Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.

If you suffer from pain because of extended use of a mouse may know what is Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. It is a common disorder that people suffer from using a muse for very long extended hours. You can also try to switch hands to prevent this but it is not the ideal solution. As the mouse was  created for the sole purpose of preventing this syndrome.

The entire assembly formed by base on which there is a magnet. After the mouse is coupled to a ring, which contains a magnet and makes the mouse levitate. In fact, there is not much explanation that we can see in the pictures. A video would be needed to show in detail the movement and precision it has.

We would have to see the range of motion we have, and if there are any non-stop to get out of the base. The levitation level when is stationary is 40mm above the surface. When we posed a hand on it holds up to 1kg in weight and 10mm levitates, so imagine not being so high is more convenient to use.

Everything works because it is connected to the power supply and weighs about 2kg, including the base. The good news is that there is only a concept done by computer but the product is being tested in the Netherlands and China and its creator, Vadim Kibardin, is doing a market study to see the feasibility of commercialization.
