MouseBlister makes your mouse uglier than ever

Posted in Mouse by Conner Flynn on August 5th, 2009

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.

Logitech offers Unifying Receiver for peripherals

Posted in Logitech by Shane McGlaun on August 5th, 2009

logitechunireceiver-sbOne of my all-time favorite mobile mice for notebooks is the Logitech VX Nano. The reason I liked the mouse so much was that it had a tiny Nano receiver that was so small you didn’t even need to unplug it to pack up your notebook.

Logitech has announced a new Nano receiver called the Logitech Unifying Receiver that eliminates the need for multiple wireless receivers when used with compatible peripherals. The tiny receiver protrudes from the USB port only 8mm and can connect with up to six different Logitech wireless peripherals.

looppointer-sbOne of the biggest issues for users who put HTPC systems into the living room is how to control the computer from the couch across the room. A wireless keyboard will handle the typing issue, but the mouse can be more difficult since there is no desk to use.

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.

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.

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.
