Apple Magic Mouse

November 5, 2009

It began with iPhone. Intuitive, smart, dynamic. Multi-Touch technology introduced a remarkably better way to interact with your portable devices — all using gestures. Now they’ve reached another milestone by bringing gestures to the desktop with a mouse that’s unlike anything ever before. It’s called Magic Mouse.
Click anywhere, scroll in any direction and swipe through images on its seamless top shell. It works wirelessly using Bluetooth. And built-in software lets you configure Magic Mouse any way you want, be it 2 button functionality or left handed.
Finally Magic Mouse features a laser tracking engine that’s far more sensitive and responsive on more surfaces than traditional optical technology.
The creator of the mouse has evolved it!

Designed for office workers who have regular access to sunlight (via windows, etc.), this environmentally friendly mouse is currently undergoing testing to see if it can charge itself during normal daily activities. The designers admit its success is likely dependant upon users adjusting their mouse-using habits to include plenty of downtime in the sun for the sake of saving a few precious watts. Cubicle monkeys, this is your ticket to a window seat…
They should start looking at sweat powered mouses…

Lomak (Light Operated Mouse and Keyboard) allows for control of an entire computer through the use of a light pointer, accommodating those who have difficulty with traditional input devices.Operated by hand or head, users aim the beam of light at a pad holding rotary-style letters and numbers.


As the light passes over each button, it appears on screen without the need for clicking or nodding or any special gestures. Thereby, typing requires only slight dexterity in a system with nearly no learning curve. Also, no special software or calibration is required, and the Lomak in no way changes the UI of your existing programs.
