Microsoft Arc Mouse

August 9, 2008



“Featuring a revolutionary new design shaped like a crescent moon, Arc folds closed to reduce in size by almost half, giving consumers the comfort of a full-sized mouse with the portability of a notebook mouse. Arc is all about the fashion edge, with a stylish micro transceiver that you can leave right in your computer and it’s available in two colors – red or black.”

If modern day entertainment technology existed a long time ago…

 

By simply attaching the removable microscopic module, which
features lens magnifications ranging from 60x to 150x, to a digital Canon
SD600 six-mega pixel camera, the unit easily transforms into a fully
functional field microscope in a matter of seconds.

The portable digital camera-microscope unit can be utilized by
law enforcement officials conducting forensics research to capture
microscopic images right at the crime scene. The iLoupe also ensures
quality control in a variety of industries, providing effective, on-site
inspection of fabrics and industrial components. In the automotive
industry, the user-friendly iLoupe can assist manufacturers and suppliers
in detecting and documenting defects on the assembly line and prior to
shipping.

The camera is obscenely ugly… hope it is not adapted to Ixus only… with its potential, its can be a sell out if its adaptable to all digital cameras and mobile phones.

Its supppose to prevents carpal tunnel syndrome, you are suppose to be comfortable with the ergonomic design, and with high-precision laser tracking engine, you should have better control over your work. It even state that the way I hold my current mouse is wrong (can i sue microsoft for designing and selling a mouse to me that they claim is bad for my hand?).

Questions: “How many designs and research does it take to make a good mouse?” and “Will this be the perfect one?” Looks cute though.

I am using a wireless intellimouse explorer 2 that looks like this but at half the height and I am feeling the strain on my wrist… and I feel mousy today…

Palm Treo 750v

September 28, 2006


Either the mold of the Palm Treo is very expensive or Palm thinks that this is the most successful design of the decade. it never change! Ok, it removed the antenna, the curves changes a bit, the keypad reverses it color and changes shape or position. But its still the same!

To be launch in Singapore first from the first week of October, it is a few grams lighter at 154g without the antenna, the device looks and feels very much like a traditional BlackBerry, albeit with a Windows Mobile 5.0 interface. Supporting quadband GSM, GPRS and EDGE as well as 3G (but not HSPDA), it also has texting functions built into the Palm-designed overlay that sits on the Windows Mobile 5.0 operating system. Google is also hardwired into the Today screen, according to Palm. Priced at SGD1,268.
