Trypticon Transforming Laser Mouse

Posted in Mouse by Conner Flynn on May 20th, 2009

Trypticon Transforming Laser MouseMouse or robot dinosaur? No one knows for sure. But thank god the transformers in the new Transformers movie don’t look as cheap as these. These are like the Ravage Transforming USB flash drive, just not as awesome.

Disguise your mouse as a dinosaur, or disguise your dinosaur as a mouse. Obviously you need to make them fight at some point. Only a whooping $60 and due in September 2009.

2-in-1 flying mouse, wiimote

Posted in Mouse by Conner Flynn on May 14th, 2009

2-in-1 flying mouse, wiimoteThis is the 2-in-1 mouse BTLS90 by Filco. It can’t decide what it wants to be. It features a gyro sensor so you can use it either on a desk or in the air like Wiimote. It doesn’t actually fly, unless you waving it around counts as flight. The mouse features an 800dpi resolution along with a USB-rechargeable 550mAh internal battery.

It isn’t much of a looker is it? I mean, it’s like a blue/black wiimote just swallowed a TV remote snake style and now it’s in for a long digestive process. It has a rather large butt too. The design team must have struggled for hours to figure out a way to make consumers stay away at all costs.

TEC’s Lingo mouse, another “world’s smallest”

Posted in Mouse by Conner Flynn on May 6th, 2009

TEC's Lingo mouse, another "world's smallest"TEC’s Lingo mouse might be a perfect little mouse for those small of finger and desktop space. It bills itself as the “smallest mouse”, at 27.5 x 60 x 19 mm and 0.8 ounces. The Z-Nano is actually smaller, but hey guys, size doesn’t matter that much does it?

This tiny pointer features 800 dpi, 2.4GHz with a range of up to 32.8 feet, and about 15 hours battery life with automatic shutoff if left alone for five minutes. We have no idea if it will make it to the states.

Thanko’s Lazy Mouse 2

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

Thanko's Lazy Mouse 2Thanko has a new and interesting gadget they’ve just introduced, in the Lazy Mouse 2, aka the GoroNeDeMouse2. It’s small enough to operate your computer like a wireless mouse. Is it lazy? For some people, this might be far easier. Especially if desk space is an issue.

The Lazy Mouse 2 is compatible with both Windows and Mac, but sadly the built-in rechargeable battery has just 4 hours of life. I’m curious. How many of you think this is an amazing idea? And how many think it’s a waste of $50?

NES gamepad mouse is amazingly awesome

NES gamepad mouse amazingly awesomeLook at it. Just sitting there ominous like the monolith in 2001. Watching mankind since the dawn of man. Waiting. Waiting for a mouse manufacturer to run with this design.

Because right now, this beautiful work of art is just a foam mock-up. The first company to build this will have my money. I don’t care how much. I’ll just hand you my wallet. I don’t even mind that the D-pad is on the side.

Posted in Mouse by Conner Flynn on April 14th, 2009

SideWinder X3 gaming mouseMicrosoft’s latest Sidewinder mouse is geared toward the entry-level gaming crowd, retailing for just $40. It looks plain and fairly boring.

You also get eight more buttons crammed into the ambidextrous layout. This USB-powered gaming mouse will be bundled with the Intellimouse software for Windows PCs for quick and easy macro programming. You’ll be able to get one when the Microsoft Sidewinder X3 hits retail shelves this May.

A mouse with a message

Posted in Mouse by Conner Flynn on April 9th, 2009

USB Airflow Mouse with LED messagingYou might remember, we told you about the LED message mouse last October. But since all of the other kids are slinging it around the net, we just wanted to brag and say we covered it back then. It’s a standard USB mouse, with some extra special features.

It can also display messages with the built in LED display. Up to 12 characters, and it also has a built in fan to keep your hands nice and cool if you have sweaty palms. I don’t wanna know why. I’m just saying.

Electric Shocking Mouse, for shocking people you don’t like

Posted in Mouse by Conner Flynn on April 9th, 2009

Electric Shocking Mouse, for shocking people you don't likeIf you don’t like the people you work with, it may be time for some revenge. Start shocking them. The product never actually says how much of a jolt this will deliver, but they say that it’s “Without harm and hurt, just a surprise”. Then in the next line they say “Just press the key as the usual computer, they will jump and cry!”.

So this gadget will make them jump AND cry for only $5.99. Can’t ask for much more then that. The company also warns that it’s “Not recommended for children under 14 years old, adults over 50 years old, or persons with any medical conditions.”

Gold Bullion Mouse: How bankers point & click

Posted in Mouse by Conner Flynn on April 6th, 2009

Gold Bullion Mouse: How bankers point & clickThe official mouse of the financial crisis. With just one click of this mouse you can get a nifty bailout, assign million dollar raises to your cronies and book a flight to some far away land where you can’t be questioned. It’s like magic, this mouse.

This isn’t just tasteless bling, it’s wireless bling. The gold bullion wireless mouse. The warehouse where these are stored may look like Fort Knox, but if you melt this stuff down all you get is a lump of burnt plastic. Not that anyone at this warehouse has a job anymore. So there’s no one there to see this pile of mice in all their bullion glory. Sad.

USB Arrow optical mouse points, you click

Posted in Mouse by Conner Flynn on March 17th, 2009

USB Arrow optical mouse points, you clickThose who like to take pointing and clicking literally will love this arrow shaped like a mouse. You get my point? It’s a point well taken. It will even get your point across. And point you in the right direction.

That’ll be enough of that. It’s got 800dpi, a scroll wheel, it will probably cripple your hand too. It’s available in red or black. Too bad it isn’t wireless, but it comes with a retractable attached USB cable. The USB Arrow Optical Mouse retails for $12.00.

Scope Node Mouse, as Precise as a Pen

Posted in Mouse by Conner Flynn on March 17th, 2009

Scope Node Mouse, as Precise as a PenElecom Japan introduced their latest hi-end mouse, which is a bit unusual. The Scope Node M-SN1UL. They’ve completely redone the design for “pen and paper” like precision for pointing at things with your favorite tool, the mouse.

It has a laser sensor (1600dpi) placed where a pen point is typically located in your hand. With the device’s off-center laser, Elecom claims a high level of precision. For some reason it also has a weird exposed scroll wheel, that looks kinda neat. It’s only available in Japan, so if you live anywhere else, you’ll have to make due with less than accurate pointing.

Sharkoon Rush FireGlider: The flame-painted hot rod of gaming mice

Posted in Mouse by Conner Flynn on March 10th, 2009

Sharkoon Rush FireGlider: The flame-painted hot rod of gaming miceWeight-adjustable mice are nothing new, they just tend to get ignored. Sharkoon(The company that can’t decide if it’s a shark or a raccoon) is hoping that a fiery exterior will get your attention. It not only has the flame motiff, but the slug chamber looks like the chamber in a gun. Probably symbolic of you biting the bullet and actually buying one.

So to summarize, the Rush FireGlider has flames, a no-slip grip, a half dozen programmable buttons, maximum resolution of 3,600 DPI, Teflon feet for superior gliding and an internal tuning system to adjust its weight from 118 to 135 grams. Oh yeah and the bullet chamber thing.

Orbita Mouse looks like a red blood cell

Posted in Mouse by Shane McGlaun on December 15th, 2008

Orbita MouseIf you go to your local electronics store and look at the display of mice for your computer or notebook, you will notice that they are all very similar in design. Not only do they share the same design and similar technology, the shape means that virtually all mice put stress on the same parts of the hand and wrist.

Cyber E Sport has introduced a new mouse that uses a unique design that reminds me of a red blood cell with a concave design. The round mouse has an indention in the middle and uses wireless 2.4GHz connectivity.

Z-Nano is the world’s smallest Mouse

Posted in Mouse by Conner Flynn on December 10th, 2008

Z-Nano is the world’s smallest MouseThe Z-Nano is truly the world’s smallest mouse. It measures just 42mm (1.65″) x 21mm (0.83″) x 17.65mm (0.69″), it’s not much bigger than it’s attached USB cable or your fingertip. The cable even clips into the mouse itself with a powerful magnet for easy storage.

It even features a slot that you can use to slip in your own tiny photo to personalize the mouse. You’ll need to squint to see it. The world’s smallest mouse will cost you $60 and it will make your hand feel all weird and lonely, while your finger does all the work.

Steampunk Mouse made with real mouse parts

Posted in Mouse by Conner Flynn on December 9th, 2008

Steampunk Mouse made with real mouse partsDaniel Pon loves Steampunk. So when it came time to make a steampunk mouse to go with his Steampunk keyboard and monitor, he went a little crazy with the design. The end result? Pretty damn cool. And maybe a bit morbid.

The Paradox Mouse is a great steampunk mod with typical brass, bolts, gears, wood, etc. A great neo-Victorian peripheral. But it has a few extra features that Daniel calls “ironic”. These features are a real mouse skull, shoulder blades and spine, all lovingly worked into the project. The skull sits on the front of the mouse, the shoulder blades as miniature cattle catchers, and the spine as the palmrest.
