Most of us use the mouse for our computers be it desktop or laptops and there hasn’t been much change in the design and usage of mouse over the years. But with ThumbTrack things are going to change.
ThumbTrack is an ergonomic touch ring-mouse controlled by the tip of your thumb. You can wear it on your thumb and perform all mouse functions with ease, eliminating the risk of pain or injury to your hand and wrist.
ThumbTrack eliminates the pain of using the mouse for long term. You can perform all the actions using this wearable technology.

The device is resistant to sweat and the occasional splash, so you don’t have to worry about water spilling on to it. The device comes with rechargeable batteries which lasts for approximately 15 hours in one charge and takes close to 2 hours to recharge it.
