[Review] Mycestro – A wearable mouse that fits on the index finger

Mycestro, a wearable mouse that fits on the index finger. Interesting, eh? I thought so too. This is new project headed up by a new company attempting to develop a new wearable that is practical for everyday use. The Mycestro uses gestures and basically turns your finger into a computer mouse. Is this something for you? Let’s see.

 

First of all, the Mycestro is pronounced Mice Stro, a lot like Maestro the music conductor. The theme involved actually fits the name very well because while you’re using the Mycestro you feel like you’re conducting a symphony. Just like learning a new instrument, this device takes time and practice using before being able to appreciate the final piece of art. The Mycestro is no exception.

Let’s cut to the chase. The Mycestro is not for me. But that doesn’t mean it’s not a good device or not for someone else. So let’s go over what I like about it and who would benefit from using the Mycestro.

What I like.

  • Lightweight.
  • Charges fast and lasts for a few days with normal use.
  • Responsive.
  • Fits comfortably and is adjustable.
  • I LOVE the scrolling feature!
  • Click are quiet and works smoothly.

The feature I like the most is definitely the scrolling. All you have to do is rub your thumb along the sides of the clickers. It’s like a mini track pad. I found myself using the scrolling feature the most while using the Mycestro. As far as using the other features I need more time with it. It’s like trying to un-train yourself from how you use computers.

For reference, I am using a Surface Pro 3 at work and a desktop PC at home. Using the SP3 I am used to using a mix of the built track pad and a connected gaming mouse. At home with my gaming rig only use a mouse. Both of which I am used to using the mouse options in a comfortable position that causes to abnormal or awkward motion. My hands are naturally in position to use the respected options.

The Mycestro gives the opportunity to use another option for your cursor. But as I said it might take some getting used to before expecting results. Personally, I am not going to use this for computing. However, I could see how this could be useful for other purposes.

  • Presentations.
  • Using with a TV.
  • Pointers.
  • Projects with design work.

Honestly, this is just one of those products that you have make it work for you and how you use tech. What doesn’t work for me, might work better for someone else. Perhaps, having more time with the Mycestro would change my opinion. It could possibly be a lot like how LG G4 users get used to using the volume and power buttons on the back and when using a difference phone you always end up feeling for the buttons on the backside; whether they are there or not.

The Mycestro is an interesting and neat idea. It has tons of potential to change the way we use our computers. Do I see it replacing mice or touch pads anytime soon? No, but I do think people will find interest in this and I think it is worth giving it a shot. Like I said, its hard to un-train yourself in some areas, but once you do it can unlock many possibilities.
