Thanks everyone, really enjoyed this :slight_smile: I don’t really play many games, but fascinating to here how advanced the ergonomics and features of mice have become. Vertical mouse is very useful for the wrists, I agree.

Hi folks, I’m also a long-time VerticalMouse user and I’ve transitioned to a Logitech M570. It gets bad press for a batch with bad actuators in the buttons but so far I haven’t had any issues myself. There are a number of off-brand vertical mouse options available these days - I have an Anker A7258M I picked up on Amazon for about twenty bucks that’s very decent. My only real complaint is that it’s a bit too light and I’m constantly knocking it around on my desk. Haha. Anyway, just wanted to let @TheWendyPower know there are options out there.

I wanted to let you know about my goto keyboard. This is an expensive, mechanical keyboard, but after I filed a workman’s comp claim for RSI, I decided I needed a better keyboard. My company balked, and so I went out and purchased my own keyboard. I love it. It can be adjusted from flat to vertical. I do all my typing at work now with the keyboard halves at a 180-degree angle.

Have downloaded all the podcasts to date and slowly catching up as spare time allows. Just finished Ep 2 and found the information about different types of mice (optical v laser) interesting as I wasn’t aware of this. I cannot see any visible light from the bottom of my mouse and assume it may be of the laser variety. I checked the specs online (Logitech M185) and it was a bit vague calling it advanced optical Tracking . Has anyone come across this before?
