MouseBlister makes your mouse uglier than everThis mouse looks like it has a deadly case of blisters. The MouseBlister claims to reduce tendonitis and carpal tunnel syndrome, but we can’t see anybody shelling out good money to ugly up their mouse in this way. Can you say scam?

Is it a mouse or a rubbery porcupine? The funny thing is that apparently it took more than a year to develop the technology to stick little bits of rubber onto a mouse. Just get an ergonomic mouse and keyboard and move on from this horror show.

Hillcrest Labs has announced that its Loop Pointer in-air mouse is now available for purchase. The device is compatible with Windows and Mac systems. The Loop allows the user to control the cursor on a PC screen wirelessly from across the room without needing a desk or other surface.

Combimouse: Keyboard and Mouse collide

Posted in Mouse by Conner Flynn on June 4th, 2009

Combimouse: Keyboard and Mouse collideThe Combimouse is a combination Keyboard and Mouse featuring a standard QWERTY keyboard and integrated standard mouse. It’s one of the weirdest things I’ve ever seen with a QWERTY layout. Apparently they are still looking to bring this to market.

An early combimouse prototype was succesfully tested by Wichita State University and they say they have all of the issues ironed out. The left unit is stationary and provides the function of the left hand side of a conventional QWERTY keyboard. While the right unit has a similar mass and center of gravity to a typical mouse. It also has a similar grip.

Cooler Master Storm gaming mouse with OLED display

Posted in Mouse by Conner Flynn on May 27th, 2009

Cooler Master Storm gaming mouse with OLED displayTweaktown recently got to check out Cooler Master’s upcoming Storm gaming mouse. This mouse is interesting mostly because of the built-in OLED display, adjustable DPI, and lots of lights. Obviously you aren’t going to do much with the screen, being the small size that it is.

You could display a small logo maybe. The model shown here is not the final version, so all of the lighting tricks aren’t shown. Yeah, it’s tacky, but those who love flashing shiny things will be happy. Pricing and availability are not yet known.

Verbatim wireless notebook mouse gets tiny USB dongle

Posted in Mouse by Shane McGlaun on May 22nd, 2009

verbatimnanomouse-sbIf you buy a typical wireless notebook mouse today, the USB adapter the thing needs can be about the size of a traditional pack of gum. That’s not so bad if you are working form a desktop that you never move, but if you are working form a notebook that you carry around the chances of breaking that big dongle are good.

A while back Logitech introduced a VX Nano cordless mouse with a tiny USB dongle to prevent damage. Verbatim has now unveiled a very similar wireless mouse called the Nano Wireless Notebook Optical Mouse. The mouse has a tiny USB dongle that only protrudes from the notebook a few millimeters.
