Casio USB label mouse prints

Posted in Casio,Mouse,Printers by Conner Flynn on November 2nd, 2007

Casio USB label mouse.In a way, the Casio USB label mouse from Brando looks like an updated fortune cookie. It’s a pretty innovative doubling up of 2 products. Just print labels directly from your mouse.

This is probably for those people that need to label everything with their name on it. There is a drawback however. The thermal roll paper isn’t cheap. It retails for $14 for a pack of 3. Ouch! The mouse itself costs $29. But you really can’t put a price on cool. It might save your desktop from Post-It overload.

Deluo MouseGPSPeanut butter and jelly. Black and white. GPS and mouse. That’s right – someone has gone ahead and paired GPS technology with a computer rodent. Hold onto your wallets and read about the questionable new gadget known as the Deluo MouseGPS, priced at around $100.

The Deluo MouseGPS, which we first covered earlier this month, is quite simply a USB mouse with a retractable USB cord and optical scrolling. The quirky part becomes apparent when you flip the switch and it becomes a GPS receiver which “tracks 16 parallel satellite channels for ease of use in even densely urban or rural areas.” It pairs with Microsoft software such as Streets & Trips to help you navigate around town.

Deluo MouseGPS doubles as mouse, GPS receiver

Deluo MouseGPS combines a laptop USB mouse and GPS receiver into one deviceDeluo, the same company that recently brought us the Bluetooth GPS for smartphones, also has available the Deluo GPSMouse. As the name implies the GPSMouse combines a GPS receiver and a travel mouse into one product.

This 2 in1 gadget first works as a normal, USB-powered optical travel mouse with a lightweight design for taking with you on the go. It even has a retractable USB cord built-in to help keep it compact. In addition, through a flick of a switch on the bottom it instantly transforms into a GPS receiver connected to your computer through the same USB cable and offering positional assistance without having to have a separate device. The MouseGPS can also optionally come packaged with Microsoft Streets & Trips giving you both pointer and street navigation in one device. What we’d really love to see is the next version of this MouseGPS to be wireless Bluetooth as well.

Sanwa NT-MA2 2-in-1 mouse keypad

Posted in Accessories,Mouse,Peripherals by Matt on October 2nd, 2007

Sanwa NT-MA2 numpad mouseA mouse and numpad combo seems like a great idea for accounting work but from looking at the Sanwa NT-MA2 one question comes to mind: How careful would the user have to be to use the device as a mouse without hitting the keys? If you look at the mouse there is a “num” button and I’m making a leap here, but if that button doesn’t lock the pad from accidental triggering of the keys then this device gets an “F”.

So far I’ve not been able to confirm that there is a lock but I have to assume the designers would think to include one, so if they did this could be a very handy 2-in-1 device for people who deal with numbers a lot.The mouse is a simple style USB mouse with just the two buttons and scroll wheel. The 53mm x 108mm x 33mm mouse comes in silver or black and is priced at 40 Eur.

Fujitsu PalmSecure PC Login kit uses vein biometric authentication to secure a PCFujitsu today unveiled a new product in PC security that uses “palm vein biometric authentication” to secure access to computers called the PalmSecure PC Login Kit. The kit comes in two versions, one as a standard which incorporates the palm vein scanner and the other that doubles as a standard computer mouse with the vein reader built in.

The palm vein device from Fujitsu uses a newer type of authentication which uses near-infrared rays to identify the unique patterns of veins in a persons hand. The system promises to provide secure authentication since no two persons vein patterns are exactly alike, and is touchless providing a more hygenic biometric authentication than touching a fingerprint scanner. Also, since the technology looks for deoxidized hemoglobin in the veins to reflect the pattern a hand with no blood pumping …
