This gadget doesn't need a flat surface to operate, instead this wearable piece of tech enables more intuitive interaction.

Mycestro is a 3D mouse that enables more mobile computing. Whereas a traditional computer mouse requires a flat surface to operate, this design places it on the index finger and allows you to control your computer with hand gestures and mouse functions.

The small and lightweight piece of wearable tech leads to more intuitive interactions as it tracks hand motion in 3D space. Mycestro incorporates Bluetooth 4.0 Low Energy Protocol and has a range of up to 30 feet. It is activated by your thumb so when you’re not touching it, the cursor pauses until you use it again.

3D Mouse Fits On Your Finger To Control Your Computer

The touch-sensitive panel initiates cursor movement and you can control the cursor position by moving your hand in the direction you want it to go. To make selections, you simply release the touch panel and then tap it again on the left, middle or right button section.

The 3D mouse has an internal battery that can be charged via USB, with an estimated battery life of around eight hours. Mycestro is currently raising funds on Kickstarter, where you can get your hands on a white device for a pledge of $79 or your choice of cyan, magenta, yellow or black for $99.
