CozyTap is building a better mouse by eliminating it altogether. The “Next Generation Computer Interface” is “elevating human-computer interaction to a new, more efficient and more comfortable level.” And when I first read that and saw this picture, I thought they were selling a big yellow pillow you sit on while you type.

Turns out, they’ve used motion capture technology to turn your fingers into a mouse.

Now that’s cool.

Once you get past the jargon, you’ll see CozyTap lets you move your cursor through simple finger movements. You don’t have to reach for a mouse, slide your hands down to the trackpad, or fumble with a scroll wheel.

…I wish they had just said that up front.

Here, CozyTap. I fixed it for you:

Overall: It needs a bit of fine-tuning, but there’s a good foundation here. With a little extra work, these could be dialed-in to meet several different markets.

Lessons: Since it’s still in funding, there wasn’t much to go off. No reviews, but there were a few interesting comments from Linux users who seemed interested in the possibility of shortcuts.

  • They’re 195% funded, so there’s clearly interest here. I hope they’re able to cut the jargon before they launch.
  • I’ll note that the company is based in Hungary. I’ve noticed tech pages from Europe tend to be more formal and data-based in their writing. While I haven’t studied conversion of international audiences, I am curious if this is done intentionally.
  • I spent a lot of time making weird finger movements while writing this
