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?

Thanko pen reads 4 SD cards simultaneouslyThanko has released a new four-slot USB SD card reader in the form of a pen. I’m not sure what situation would arise where you would need to read four different SD cards at the same time, but if it happens you are covered.

The SD4PEN can read four SD or SDHC cards (up to 16GB) as well as let you write all of the usual mundane things you write throughout the course of your day. Nothing on pricing yet or a release date, but we’re sure it will be soon. I mean you need another pen and you’ve got SD cards. You need this.

Thanko earrings/headphones

Posted in Headphones by Conner Flynn on September 19th, 2008

Thanko earrings/headphonesWith everyone wearing headphones these days it was only a matter of time before they also became earrings as well. Thanko is rolling out their new Sounds Live Magnetic headphones. They look like earrings, and can be clipped onto the earlobe whenever you want to listen to your favorite tunes.

Would that be comfortable? Each pair has a frequency response of 20Hz-25,000Hz, an impedance of 32Ω, and a sensitivity of 100dB/mW. Each pair will retail for about $19 in Japan.I think they are going to want to up the style on these next time around though, and make them look a bit more like jewelry. Not every one can rock a Panda and a soccer ball ya know.

Thanko puts a pad lock on USB drives

Thanko puts a pad lock on USB drives
There are lots of ways to protect your ultra secret “eyes only”, top level clearance only data. Here’s Thanko’s answer. A pad lock on a usb drive.

Hey why not? If you have nosy co-workers or are just paranoid someone will find out about you moonlighting as a secret agent, it might work. Maybe. Okay, probably not. But it’s a neat idea. Maybe good for protecting regular data. Go for something stronger when hiding Top Secret files. Even a monkey could disassemble this thing.

Thanko Cooler USB Keyboard
The way I see it, if sweaty palms are a problem for you, you can either keep a rosin bag next to your keyboard like Baseball pitchers use or you can get yourself a keyboard with air vents. Thanko has just such a keyboard, so stop being nervous and sweating through your hands already.

The Thanko Cooler USB keyboard works just like those bowling lane machines, with air vents to keep your hands dry. The built-in fan has a switch so you can turn it off whenever you don’t need it. Not sure how loud it is, but it will cost you $62.

Thanko’s solar-powered DAP

Thanko’s solar-powered DAP
As far as solar devices go, Thanko’s DAP actually looks pretty nice. I’ve seen much worse. In the front it looks like any other device with a 1.8-inch 220 x 176 resolution display, 4GB of internal storage space and a miniSD expansion slot.

But in the back is where you’ll find the solar panel that doubles as a stand for the unit. Just stand the whole thing up as shown and let it soak up the sun. It can also be charged via USB. No word on a price or release date, so who knows if we’ll ever see it in the U.S.

Cranking MP3 player from Thanko
Here’s an MP3 player from Thanko that can be hand-cranked, so you can enjoy your music no matter where you are, and not have to worry about batteries or the sun for power. They say that a single minute of cranking will get you 10 minutes worth of music. The device is capable of storing up to 1GB worth of audio, and supports MP3 and WMA formats. It even has a built-in flash light for when you are rocking out in the dark. The player retails for about 40 Euros. It’s not heavy on style and it won’t win mp3 player of the year by a long shot, but it gets the job done.
