But isn't it kind of useless since it's still mouse movement unless you hover your mouse?

not really... the advantage tablets have isnt the movement so much as the absolute positioning which allows you to not drift at all so you never have to pick the mouse up and put it back down somewhere else, and it provides a stronger foundation to develop muscle memory with because when they put their hand at a certain spot their cursor will always be there, with a mouse you could be fully pivoted to the right and your cursor could be in the middle of the screen because it depends more where you pick it up and put it down or where the mouse is when you put your hand on it without the blessing of absolute positioning.

that run-on sentence oh my god.

tl;dr tablet stronk, tablet mouse hybrid just as stronk.

No one seems to realize that while absolute positioning has its benefits, tablets are also used for the decreased weight and increased maneuverability of the pen. A mouse can have absolute positioning too, theoretically.

Stabilise the shaking by gripping a mouse while still using tablet lol awesome.

That looks like a wireless mouse so he can turn it off while leaving the tablet on.

Depending on the feet of the mouse, extensive use can lead to scratches but it depends on how much pressure you apply and the material on the base of the mouse.

It's a tradeoff for stability, though I'd imagine it would be different if I used a mouse designed for fingertip grip. I'd argue that pengrip is not for everyone and that there should be more varied ways to play without having to diss absolute positioning, but I only have *my* experience to base that on, which is why I made a thread about it. Maybe I just needed more practice holding the pen but I was too curious to commit myself to doing that.

I'm not using the tablet as a mousepad, it's too small. I put a scratchboard on it and then put my real mousepad on top of the scratchboard. The scratchboard is just there to support the mousepad. (Don't use a scratchboard. I just picked what was available at the crafting shop. A hard, thin mousepad or similar solid surface would work perfectly.)

Nothing should get damaged as long as you use light adhesive/tape to hold the stuff together
