the bat 2There is debate amongst users as to the pros and cons of a gaming mouse. Some claim there is no need for mice with such high DPI, while hardcore gamers might argue otherwise. That being said, perhaps a new debate might arise in the future as to whether we need a mouse that can levitate? As you can see in the picture above, that is a mouse that appears to be levitating. It is dubbed The Bat and it is a project by Kibardin Design and if you think that this is merely a concept, it is not because according to its page, its status reads as “testing”, indicating that perhaps at the very least a very early prototype exists in a crude form.

The goal of The Bat is to create a mouse that floats which according to the design team, will help prevent and treat Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. The base of the mouse will feature a magnetic ring that will allow the mouse to float about 40mm when not in use, and at 10mm when you place your hand on it. The specifications read that it should support a weight of up to 1kg. We’re not sure if we will ever see The Bat hit the market and we’d hate to think how much it would cost, but it definitely looks good. Functionality also remains to be seen but what do you guys think? Would you be interested in such a product?
