The purpose of this presentation is to summarize the Pros and Cons of Vertical Mice Designs Participants will learn: 1. What the six most popular vertical mice are on the market today 2. Why go vertical as opposed to using traditional mice designs? 3. What the use studies suggest regarding the design of these five popular vertical mice designs. What do users actually prefer and why? For the past 6.0 decades, why have the two basic components of computing remained essentially the same? With the advent of many of our software programs being mouse driven, what has been the recent push for a different and/or better peripheral design as it relates to vertical mice designs and mousing? Have these vertical mice designs lived up to their marketing promises or have they settled in with the same overall results as their prior standard counterparts? This tract on popular vertical mice designs and their outcomes provides usability study research outcomes on what the users actually prefer and why.
