Context


MugMouse is a simple, playful idea, using your coffee mug as computer mouse. MugMouse rethinks the way people work at computers by making it easy to build slowness into your daily activities.

MugMouse plays on the idea of deliberately choosing to use a slower mouse for a while. Filled with tea or coffee you have to move it more carefully than a normal mouse. Do certain tasks at the computer deserve a bit more time, reflection or personal involvement? Checking your email, visiting your favourite website or blog, reading the daily news, shopping etc. MugMouse can be seen as a reward; serving as a signal to yourself and others that you are having a little time away from your work.

MugMouse is part of my " SLOWEB peripherals" that aims to provide an alternative to the fast global flow of information and is concerned with rhythms of consumption.
