malleable mouse/trackball

An ergonomic mouse that can adjust it's shape to the curve of your hand
(+1, -1)
  [vote for,

I tend to use trackballs and I happen to use a different one at work then at home. Recently as the karpal tunnel started acting up again, I realized that I'm straining the index finger because it's not supported by the trackball.

What if the mouse or trackball could be molded to the shape/curve of your hand, be it inflatable or using some other mechanism to change its shape.

       I think [theircompetitor] is onto something here, he gets my vote to stirring thought. Now all I need to do is patent the bugger! +

       Darn. You got there first. I was just thinking of a mouse with a malleable wire mesh shell that would let your hand breath as well. Being able to change the position of the buttons might also be nice.
