The Mycestro: A Next Generation 3D Mouse
With amazing technology innovations popping up on a daily basis, the computer mouse is one piece of technology that’s been left in the dust. From track pads to track points, and the traditional hand mouse — it’s time for a computer mouse revolution. It’s time for The Next Generation 3D Mouse, aka the Mycestro.
Seeking funding over on our good friend Kickstarter, the Mycestro lets you navigate your computer with hand gestures as mouse functions. Just secure it onto your index finger to curse, scroll and click.
There are also left, right and center click buttons just for those of us who live by the right click button. To keep this little doodad powered up, simply charge via USB when you’re not using it.
But how do you get one?! As we mentioned, the Mycestro project is live on Kickstarter right now! For $79, you can get the basic white mouse as early as October. If you’re looking for a little more color, go for the $99 backing option and choose between cyan, magenta, yellow, or black. You know we love us some color!
Hi, I'm Brit, the founder and CEO of Brit + Co. I'm a young mom of two, tech nerd and design-inclined lady who has a zillion hobbies and curious about... just about everything! My mission from the beginning has been to unlock women's creativity and courage to try new things so that they can find the path to their true passions.
Back in January, we introduced you to a feel-good cause to inspire your New Year's resolution: a walking challenge to help raise funds for the amazing cancer fighters at The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. I took part in the challenge with the Brit + Co team and ended up walking 105+ miles in January — it was awesome.
This spring, there's a new challenge on the horizon, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Big Climb. The ask: On May 15, 2021, you can step up to take cancer down by committing to climb 1,311 steps, walking 3.2 miles, or doing 440 chair step-ups at home as part of the Big Climb. If you need some motivation to bring movement back into your daily routine — look no further!
As always, it's free to sign up, but climbers are encouraged to set a fundraising goal to help beat cancer. We'll be organizing another Brit + Co team to step up, and I hope you'll join us too! Keep scrolling for a peek at where I'll be completing the challenge in my Los Angeles neighborhood around the hidden Silver Lake Stairs. Happy climbing!
Never underestimate the power of an accountability buddy! I asked my in-laws, my partner, and a few friends to join me so we can keep each other motivated and accountable in completing the challenge — virtual high-fives all around! Also, my dog Fox is a great climber, too.
An aesthetically pleasing backdrop is a huge motivator for me! I'm fortunate to have all sorts of painted steps around my neighborhood to keep the challenge interesting, but you can also keep cool inside with at-home chair step-ups.
Don't forget to share your progress on social — #BigClimb!
Feel free to break the challenge up if you need to by tackling half the distance in the AM and half at sunset. Here's me 1,311 steps later and ready for a break — but, think I earned this one!
