Microsoft Trackball Explorer XX made by Massdrop

I can't use a mouse due to significant RSI injuries. I use a 15 year old Microsoft Trackball Explorer and whilst I am fortunate enough to have a couple of spares, no one has ever come close to making a trackball that is as comfortable to use. Trust me, I've tried them all. They have a cult following and new ones sell for $600 on Amazon. Microsoft has shown no interest in returning to the marketplace but I wonder if your biz dev people could convince them to let you make a Massdrop made version. Judging by the prices of these Fabergé eggs of the pointing device world I imagine there is a significant market for these and I would be first in line to buy one, two or ten.

Sorry to hear about your hands man. Good news, Logitech currently makes a mouse identical to this with the rollerball. I ran across it on www.newegg.com yesterday. Logitech is a top of the line Company so that should work for you. I'll try to find you the link for it. Actually here is one at best buy.com for $26 or $6 with promo code "MARSAVE19". Logitech makes like 8 different models like this so surely one of them would work out.
