Nice new way of designing a mouse but if it's really that comfortable/practical? Not sure about that...
I haven't tried one though..

Vertical or handshake grip mice are not a new invention. I use one every day. The position of the hand is much more relaxing for your arm.

this is because the Ulna and Radius bone (two main bones that makes up your wrist movement) are not "crossed" or in a strained position when your palms are vertical vs facing the surface plane.

i kinda feel some angle between 90 & 0 feels natural for me, also this doesnt solve keyboard use (well... there's the infamous microsoft one, but maybe that should have an even greater angle)

I agree with you. I personally also like those mouse that are sort of a crossbred in between, and allows my palm to rest at a 45 degree angle so I can get gravity assist on button clicking - mind you clicking buttons at a complete vertical angle and having your fingers travel perpendicular to the force of gravity is both tiresome and slow.

The build-quality of Evoluent compared to what they are charging is really upsetting. I would love for somebody like Logitech to get into these types of mice. Because for working every day they are superior IMO.
