iamback: For a mouse like that I'd have to twist my arm to grasp the mouse: neither arm nor hand will be "resting" anywhere any more,
I was trying to figure that one out too. I think what you're supposed to do is put your arm out like you would for a regular mouse, resting the forearm flat. Now turn the hand so the thumb is up and the pinkie down. The forearm stays on the table, but now you're resting on one bone.

Still, even finding there may be a way to keep my forearm on the table, I can't "feel" how this is more ergonomic. I guess I'd have to grasp the mouse to find out. You wouldn't be flexing your wrist, though, which I gather could be a good thing.
