The problem that influenced the creation of the Folding Pen Mouse is that many people prefer to use mice than touchscreen technology, yet the mouse has not been very well adapted for portability. What Yoon Son suggests is a hybrid device that can be compressed in size and used quite flexibly.
Perfect for use with laptop computers and iPads, this invention is a computer mouse that doubles over in half so that it can be grasped much like a writing utensil. Its sensored end offers precision capabilities when it comes to its use as both a cursor and a stylus. Hinges and magnets enable the Folding Pen Mouse to shape-shift so that you only need one device on hand in the place of two.
