The Impatient Hand replaces your
mouse with one that resembles a hand,
similar in size to your own. It takes its
general appearance from the famous
horror movie "The Beast With Five
To use the Impatient Hand, you rest your
hand on its back, feeling its warmth
quiet pulse, and move it around on its
slippery palm. It is also more versatile
conventional mouse, because you can
assign different functions to each of its
fingers. Pressing down on individual
digits makes a
satisfying knuckle click (adjustable).
The Impatient Hand derives its name
its behaviour when not in use. Normally
sits motionless beside your computer,
if you leave it unused for too long it
begins twitching or taping its fingers, or
scratching whatever surface on which it
rests. This behavour increases in
until it rises up and starts creeping or
running around, in a most startling
manner, using its fingers like legs.
Comes in either male or female versions.
Arrives in a special storage box (scroll
down link for image).
Can also be connected to an older
computer, by extending the retractable,
fake sinew, usb lead.
Health and Safety Warning - keep away
from your throat !
May have tendency to wander, especially
if you have a piano.

let me introduce you to my mouse... [xenzag, Apr 03 2007]
It would look like this

Virtual Hand Model
Scroll down. [BJS, Apr 05 2007]
||Would nicely accompany the Cousin Itt monitor dust cover.
||Or get one of those virtual keyboard things, and use your own hand.
||In order to increase your profits you could produce "add-ons" that are sold separately. I'm thinking nice rings and perhaps even a fingernail kit--complete with polish and fairy dust! The sky's the limit...
||Creepy funny. Exactly what _did_ happen to your unpleasant neighbor? This chili is delicious, by the way.
||Darn! I thought of a hand shaped mouse about a month ago (I should have posted it), but I didn't think of making it have a pulse or a sweaty palm or the ability to crawl around.
||I don't get it, do you put your hand on the back of the hand, or on the palm?
||This would also have to be available in a left handed model (pun intended, I think?).
||I got that [xenzag] feeling on the second sentence.
||Isn't there already a breast shaped mouse? And also a penis shaped mouse?...hmmmm
