Back in the 1950's automatic machines required large motor skills to operate. Early track ball mouse input devices, although as precise as contemporary models sometimes required large motor skills to operate especially as they became plugged with grime. A 1950s Mouse with an oversized mousepad will require much larger ranges of motion for relative cursor travel.

       How about fitting GPS and Bluetooth to a Mini, and using the carpark as a mousepad?

       It would be a lot like operating a ball mouse that is clogged with dead wrist belly.

       Chrome. Lots of chrome. And some Van deGraaff towers for ears.
