AirMouse – the mouse that fits you like a glove because it is one…or at least part of a glove. The wireless mouse utilizes an optical laser, and can run for a week without recharging. According to the company website, the clinically-tested product works by aligning itself with the ligaments of your hand and wrist. This lets you keep your hand in a neutral position, and transmits more of your vector force than would be possible with a regular mouse. Not only does this make it easier on your hand, but it increases your mousing speed and accuracy as well. The mouse is also designed to remain inactive until your hand is placed in a neutral, flat position, so you can easily go back and forth between typing and mousing.

Panels to explore social media and wrongful convictions
A lawyer uses her iPhone inside a courtroom to tweet a disparaging remark about the judge. A man is freed after 16 years in jail for a crime he did not commit due to DNA evidence proving his innocence. These two diverse, yet true-to-life, examples demonstrate how social media and wrongful convictions have each affected the legal profession in the past year and spurred significant discussion about important issues ranging from attorney-client privilege to how faulty identification procedures can lead to a wrongful conviction.
