1.Insert the index finger into the elastic-ring and adjust your finger position until you feel comfortable and move the Finger Mouse smoothly
Do not adjust the elastic-ring too tight or it will interface with the effect of blood circulation
2.Align your index finger tip and the Finger Mouse light sensor tip to the same height
3.Use your thumb to control the 'Right Button', 'Left Button' and 'Scroll Wheel'
4.Place your middle finger at the grip area to provide support when you are double-clicking
5.Contact the USB Finger Mouse light sensor tip to the surface, such as clothes, trousers... for operation
It is ideal for home, office, and travellers as it doesn't require much space to operate and won't interfere with any typing actions. It works by strapping to the index finger with button operated by the thumb. Work on any textured surface, such as clothes, pants, just like regular optical mouses.
In real life testing, we found that it takes a while to get used to a "vertical" finger operated mouse due to the fact that most computer users have never dealt with something like this. You'll need to learn to point it at a consistent angle, and also the way to use your thumb to operate the two buttons.
Mouse resolution is good for typical operations. Don't plan to use it with photoshop or action games though -- get a full-blown mouse instead. This is supposed to be a spacer saving and novel gadget that works.
Once you get used to it though (which should be fairly quick), you'll love the little operating space it takes. A must have gadget for frequent travellers who hate tiny touchpads and even more tiny IBM track sticks. You'll find it especially useful in space-contrained situations such as travelling on buses, trains, and planes.
