Deformable mouse pad / mouse pad

Deformable mouse pad
Deformable mouse pad

“Deformable mouse pad” is universal design. It is designed to remind users to have a rest automatically after a long working time. It is made of a special synthetic material, which has good flexibility. Deformable mouse pad has a sensor inside which can sense the mouse’s sliding and record the mouse’s working duration. The Deformable mouse pad will bend inwards slowly with time when sensing the mouse’s sliding and wrap up the whole mouse after one hour’s persistent work. Thus, users are unable to use the mouse and aware of having a rest.
