Tiny Mouse / mouse

Tiny Mouse

Laptop has become thinner and thinner, but mouse remains huge and hard to carry. After some research, we find out that some structures of the mouse are not necessary. We normally use index and middle finger to press the button, thumb and ring finger to move the mouse. We do need a arch form to support our palm, but we don’t really need a whole back. A narrow spine can do the job perfectly. Remove all the unnecessary parts, the mouse can be folded. Two steps, your mouse becomes less than 20mm thin. Easy to carry, easy to use.
