MacRumors Giveaway: Win MagicGrips for Your Magic Mouse From Elevation Lab

For this week's giveaway, we've teamed up with Elevation Lab to give MacRumors readers a chance to win some MagicGrips that are designed for Apple's Magic Mouse.

MagicGrips, made from a solid silicone rubber, are designed to make the Magic Mouse a lot more comfortable to work with by making it wider and giving you more to hold onto. MagicGrips cover 75 percent of the sides of the Magic Mouse, but don't interfere with click travel thanks to a precise fit.


Elevation Lab says the MagicGrips are designed to create a big concave surface for your fingers, for a more relaxed grip that makes the mouse easier to use for long periods of time. When the MagicGrips were in development, the company tested more than 100 prototypes to find the ideal design that was most comfortable for the widest number of users.


MagicGrips work with all hand sizes and for both left and right-handed users, and they're compatible with both Magic Mouse 1 and 2 models. There's also an XL thumb grip for an even wider grip if desired.


The MagicGrips attach to the sides of a Magic Mouse using 3M adhesive that can be removed at any time.

Elevation Lab normally charges $12.95 for the MagicGrips, but we have 50 of them to give away, so we'll have a lot of winners for this giveaway.

What I've found works pretty well with the Magic Mouse is to throw it into the rubbish bin and use a Magic Trackpad.

Hahahahahaha the ultimate design fail.

When your product is so unergonomic that other designers make add-on handles for it.

Apple has lost its' soul

When this happens, how do they not fire everyone who came within 100 feet of the room it was designed in.

Oh god it gets worse

I have a Magic Mouse that I never use because it is an ergonomic piece of ****. Maybe I should give these a try?

What I've found works pretty well with the magic mice is to take a decent Logitech model, like the MX705 or VX Revolution series, and *carefully* tape the logitech mouse to the top of the Apple mouse. I find that the Apple mice are sensitive enough that when you click on the Logitech mouse, it is picked up by the Magic mouse and it works fine. To be fair, you do lose the touch gestures on top of the Apple Mouse - if that's important enough, you can tape the Magic mouse onto the top of the logitech mouse, but then it's more awkward to use. For me, I don't use the touch gestures much, so it's easier to put the Logitech on top of the magic mouse instead of vice versa.

While everyone bashes Apple's lack of ergonomics, I think they are doing an incredible job in balancing business aspect as well as design.

They are essentially making them look good to sell it to customers, and create a huge market place that enhances their product.

As more of these accessory options are available, customers would want to buy Apple product more to try those accessories
