    In regards to the critique of the form factor: Other versions of the project do not use a box and a picture frame: http://www.instructables.com/id/Trackmate_Portable_Plexi_Cliffhanger/

    oooh! oooh! I got one! A bath of stiff gel with x/y/z axes correlated through magnetic field suspended ferrite granules that you read with a PET scanner sort of affair while you wiggle your fingers! Like a mouse only much more expensive! (later to be adapted to a haptic whole body bath for interactive pron)

    I get neck and wrist pain just looking at the interface in the picture. It’s a neat concept and
    visually interesting, but something that requires
    you to reach a couple inches above your keyboard
    and avoid getting poked in the wrist by the protrusions on the picture frame would be really
    strenuous to use.

    The kinds of interfaces I’d really get excited
    are more ergonomic replacements for the mouse.
