Samsung has unveiled the concept of a device that is strictly intended to prevent overworking. The efforts of the tech titan suggest that it does not want you to work beyond a certain limit.
According to India Today, the Samsung Balance Mouse will start running away from you once you exceed a certain time limit and begin overworking.
The mouse not only runs away like a real mouse, but it also looks and acts like one. For now, however, the mouse is still just an idea in partnership with an ad agency and is not available for sale.
The concept first surfaced in 2018 with an advertisement about the health hazards of working overtime.
The concept arose as a result of Korea’s desire to improve its work-life balance. The video of the Mouse was uploaded on Samsung’s Korean YouTube channel.
Samsung observes that Korean employees work long hours and are constantly under pressure. Workers do not take vacations, according to the company’s video.
The device detects hand movements and will wheel out if it detects that a person is overworking. Samsung claimed that you cannot simply get back the mouse and bring it back for use.
To start with, the mouse moves extremely quickly. Second, even if it is caught, it will automatically dismantle, rendering it useless.
“This is useful when working overtime.”
