AlphaGripThe AlphaGrip is so geek they may as well have named it AlphaGeek. Or maybe that’s what you turn into when you use it.

In any event, calling the AlphaGrip an “ergonomic USB computer keyboard & trackball alternative” is almost an understatement. It looks like a 15-year old Atari Jaguar controller on steroids.

The concept is simple: keyboard suck because they require a flat steady surface to use, but the AlphaGrip can be held and used in any position, even while running or lying on your back (provided you have a long enough USB cable).

They say 30 hours of training is needed until you’ll be somewhat proficient with the AlphaGrip. After 10 hours, we’re still pecking out words, but our accuracy is pretty solid, even if our speed is only 6 WPM.

AlphaGrip doesn’t need any drivers and works with virtually any system out there. Some gamers even swear it’s better than the trusty keyboard+mouse. All this for only $99.

Oh, and the ladies go absolutely crazy over it!
