Mouse movement within a second

Mouse movement within a second

Throughout a day, we travel the desk with mouse for more than half-a-kilometer. Vast amounts of information is produced and consumed by billions of people around the world from their every travel. However, the pattern of these travels shows big difference with varying movement directions. Due to the biomechanical structure of human-wrist, the horizontal movement shows more stability than the vertical movement, even when the former is faster in speed. This indicates a fact that even in virtual space, where limit of distance is thought to be overcome, informations vary their physical cost by the way they are positioned.
