Put cork in it

We find much to like about Corky, a prototype mouse that’s a splendid example of convergence between universal and green design. Cork is generally considered to be non-allergenic, so it’ll be beneficial to folks with various environmental illnesses. In addition, it’s both wireless and self-charging–no batteries to dispose and no rechargers to fumble with. Our main quibble is that it’s the same ol’ not-particularly-friendly mouse shape–but once the basic technology is available, we feel pretty confident that ergonomics will follow.
