Control Your Computer with the Reinvented Mouse Called gStick
GNOV8 TECH has launched their new mouse technology on Kickstarter. The innovative gStick mouse is held like a pen and allows the user to control their computer with comfort with it’s ergonomic design and rolling ball tip. It's a new form factor in mouse technology.
The gStick is a new form factor in mouse technology. It’s a great replacement for a traditional mouse because it’s ergonomic shape is comfortable. For drawing or painting free-form shapes the movement is natural, as with drawing with a pencil.
"It's amazing how natural and intuitive the gStick is to use, compared to a normal mouse. The gStick's ergonomic design lets me move the cursor across the screen with a flick of the wrist!"
- Kerby McGhee, Artist at 8th Design
It’s size also makes it comfortable to hold for those who experience carpal tunnel pain in the hand. The inventor, Gordon Stewart has carpal tunnel in his right hand from construction work. Using a small diameter pencil or traditional mouse becomes uncomfortable for him, but not with the gStick mouse.
The gStick has left/ right click buttons, a scroll wheel and works on a mouse pad. It’s wireless, “plug and play” and comes with a micro USB dongle, just plug it in and it’s ready to use for PC’s and Macs.
The GNOV8 team has 8 BETA testers using the gStick and they are excited with it’s performance. It has been tested for games like MINECRAFT, StarCraft and the programs Photoshop, Illustrator, Google SketchUp, Polyvore, Ebay, Youtube, FaceBook and basic web browsing in Google and Bing.
"...Very natural to use. Became almost second nature in minutes while playing Minecraft. It will be epic with Starcraft" - Reeve Byrne, Minecraft enthusiast, BETA tester.
The gStick uses one AAA battery which will last 3-5 months, depending on use. The battery loads into the back end of the gStick, much like a flashlight. The front cap, that encloses the rolling ball can be removed for easy cleaning. And the gStick uses a tiny USB dongle to connect to the computer. A Bluetooth version is also planned and may become part of the current Kickstarter project as a stretch goal.
The gStick will be available in red, white, blue, black, yellow, purple and orange. It’s available now for pre-order for $35 and will ship to customers in November, just in time for Christmas. After the Kickstarter project ends July 30th, it will be available on Amazon and other retailers for $79 by Christmas.
GNOV8 is a technology design company and was Founded by Gordon Stewart, who also created the SpaceBook, dual-screen laptop. Gordon is currently negotiating with three American PC companies regarding a global co-brand deal for the SpaceBook series of dual-screen notebooks.
