How many calories in a single mouse click?

Feel the burn

A Japanese publication has narrowed down the amount of calories we burn each time we click a mouse button

How many mouse clicks do each of us go through on a typical day? Chances are its a lot. A new publication has revealed that a single mouse click burns 1.4 calories.

Apparently a Japanese publication named "Convert anything to calories" does exactly what it says on the tin and managed to figure out the burn of a single mouse click.

Based on an index finger at a volume of 10.8 cubic centimeters and a weight of 11.7 grams it takes 195 micromoles of ATP (Adenosine Triphosphase) to flex the muscles needed for a single click.

So, forget heading to the gym this evening. Just click harder.
