Posted in Mouse by Shane McGlaun on August 25th, 2010

If you spend lots of time at a computer using a mouse and keyboard you know that it can cause pain and stress on your wrist. The wrist gets sore and you can get injuries like carpal tunnel in part for holding the same position for extended periods.

A new mouse from SmartFish called the ErgoMotion mouse has been unveiled that promises to reduce RSI injuries. The mouse has a design that looks like a regular mouse on a stand. The mouse moves around like normal mouse and is able to pivot side-to-side and front to back as it moves so the wrist isn’t stuck in a single position.

Posted in Wii by Conner Flynn on August 17th, 2010

That’s right, everyone is so tablet crazy that even the Wii is getting a tablet. And it’s not even from Nintendo, but game publisher THQ. THQ will be launching the $70 uDraw Game Tablet aimed at 6-to-12-year-olds. It measures 9 inches wide and 7 inches wide, making it about the same size as a Nintendo Wii.

The tablet comes with uDraw software. Pictionary and Dood’s Big Adventure are sold separately, each priced at $29.99. To use the tablet, players connect the uDraw Game Tablet to a Wii controller. Then a stylus lets gamers draw pictures and play games.

roadmice-sgNovelty mice are all fine and good, but most of them don’t really appeal to me. The typical novelty mouse isn’t very easy to use either. Road Mice has announced a new line of mice that look like popular cars.

You can get the mice in the shape of several really cool cars. You can get a Shelby GT500, Lamborghini, Challenger, Dodge Viper and more. The mice connect to Mac or Windows computers via USB.

An entire baby Wiimote peripheralYou thought the inflatable horse peripheral was a bad idea. That was before your kid could get a whole baby to use with their Wii. Every time I think that we have seen the height of weirdness in Wii-land, they drop something even weirder on us.

Bundled with the upcoming Wii game Baby and Me (in Australia), this doll-mote uses the Wiimote’s speaker to make the baby cry or laugh. You can even use the Wii Balance Board, which allows you to burp the baby, rock the baby and teach “her” to walk. (Which she will never learn because she’s just a doll with a Wiimote crammed in her insides.)

Wii Bowling Ball is one Wii peripheral too manyWii accessories officially jump the shark with this Wii bowling ball. Now all you need are some fugly shoes and you are all set to break records by knocking down fake pins and being a dork. This “ultra-realistic accessory”, allows you to mimic all the critical motions of a “striking performance”.

It works by pressing the release button to open the ball in half, where you place the Wii remote inside and close the ball. Once the remote is inside, put your fingers in and hang your head in shame for buying this thing.

Robot gaming peripheral patented by SonyRemember Nintendo’s gaming robot ROB? Well, it looks like Sony has a new patent application for an add-on gaming robot, which will react to both the game and the user.

The patent was filed in June last year, for a robot that moves around the room detecting the environment, and then displaying the same on the integrated screen. The bot would be equipped with wheels, acceleration sensors, camera, microphone and speakers to carry out all of it’s sinister missions, like listening and responding to user commands.
