Mylilmouse.com Launches Ergonomic Computer Mouse for Kids with Patented “Squeeze” Technology
Silicon Valley, CA (PRWEB) November 24, 2009
Dr. Curtis Whitcomb, the innovator behind the My Lil’ Mouse products, has teamed up with Intellectual Licensing & Capital Group (http://www.ilgcap.net) to develop and launch a fun, easy to use, interactive computer mouse for kids. Dr. Whitcomb has worked with children for the past 25 years as a clinical audiologist and recognized a need for a smaller, more ergonomically friendly computer mouse for children between the ages of 2-7 years old. Children of this age have small hands and lack the dexterity required to easily click adult sized computer mice.
The My Lil’ Mouse, computer mouse for kids, is a unique design integrating a patented squeeze technology. Young children do not have the dexterity to easily “click” an adult sized computer mouse with their index finger. The clicking action is a learned ability and typically takes children over the ages of 7 to develop these skills. As many parents have expressed through multiple studies performed by Dr. Whitcomb, kids become confused with the multiple buttons of an adult mouse creating “click confusion” by the young user. By eliminating the multiple buttons and replacing them with one single “squeeze” button this significantly improves accuracy and reduces frustration of the child using the computer.
Dr. Whitcomb incorporated a front contoured and textured button to provide ergonomic comfort and tactile feedback for the child using the My Lil’ Mouse. This contoured button was designed to work the way a child’s hand works, a “squeeze” rather than a click, with the functionality of a left mouse button only. Children have the tendency to squeeze with all fingers and the My Lil’ Mouse is the only computer mouse on the market that incorporates this design.
Other features incorporated into the My Lil’ Mouse are; see through design with two LED lights which glow each time the mouse is clicked, easy to use USB connectivity for PC or MAC computers, Textured contoured button for added comfort and control and Advanced optical technology with 800 dpi.
The My Lil’ Mouse team is very excited about this product as parents are now recognizing the need for their children to learn computer skills at an early age. Parents want to assist their children in computer skills so they are well antiquated and ahead of the curve when they start school.
The My Lil’ Mouse, computer mouse for kids, is available in two colors, light blue and pink, with more colors being added to the product line in the upcoming months. The My Lil’ Mouse makes a great gift and parents will be excited to see how fast and how much their child will learn using this fun, colorful, engaging and ergonomic computer mouse for kids.
