Home > Winners > #28254


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Snowball

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Computer Mouse

INSPIRATION:
Simplicity, reversed nature of things

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Snowball is designed to function in a reversed fashion regarding conventional mouse usage. With its simple, yet eye catching form completed with a unique commanding unit, can be customized both by alternative case, commanding unit color options and by different functions that are benefited from design and working principle. Snowball has an ergonomic feel and both left and right handed users can easily use the device.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
Commanding unit transmits L-R button signals and formed by two individual pieces attached together and to casing by magnets. Casing is insert molded with a steel wireframe, giving it both strength and magnetic properties. Male and female halves are screwed together and an O ring secures the volume making the case waterproof and durable. Interior system is kept stationary by design as the device rolls on surface. Relative movement between casing and system mimics the motion of conventional mouse operation in a reversed fashion. Inner face of casing acts like a mouse pad and interior system with its optic sensor located at top resolves movements as a regular mouse does in X-Y plane. Secondary optic sensor, which works in a perpendicular plane relative to primary optic sensor, brings more options of movement in 3D space, giving the ability to customize functions by user. Usage and functions; to navigate roll the device in the desired direction. To roll down/up in a page; turn the device in clockwise/counter clockwise direction.
