      Smartfish Technologies have developed a new ergonomic keyboard and mouse:

      sf-keyboard-750px.jpg The theory goes that if you change the position of your wrist / hand then you reduce the risk of RSI at work.

      The keyboard has a motor inside which actualy moves the two halves apart and tilts the keyboard to constantly change your wrist position. The mouse two is designed not to move accross the desk but to 'wobble' to control the cursor.

      There's also a vidreo from Gizmag


      Anyone suffered from RSI? I've used computers daily for the last decade or so, and occasionly get aching wrists, but also type mainly with my right hand with my left only covering the letters q-r-c-z. Do I just not type properly?
