Canadian firm Deanmark's wearable mouse comes almost close to aping the glove interface worn by Tom Cruise's character in "Minority Report." Though it's no power glove or highly calibrated gaming hand sock like the Peregrine gauntlet, the AirMouse does seem capable of addressing repetitive strain injuries. Even with the best of ergonomic mice at your fingertips, there's no avoiding wrist fatigue. Take it from yours truly.
Since a certain late entertainment icon has made the one-gloved look chic, you shouldn't feel weirded out donning the AirMouse around your palm. This rodent works on … Read more
Of course, CES is full of oddball, goofball, and just plain cheesy products; but amid the sea of plastic this year a little tidbit caught my eye from a Toshiba booth, of all places. After eyeballing a variety of Satellite laptops, a Toshiba representative insisted I take a look at a corner of the table that I had ignored, because I thought the little plastic tchotchkes were party favors.
Official Transformers-brand USB memory sticks and mice, which on closer inspection completely mirrored the type of toys I used to obsessively collect in my childhood, are coming soon. If they're … Read more
LAS VEGAS--The Cambridge Consultants booth at CES showcased several concept designs by the company. One that caught our attention was the Suma platform, a squeezable interface technology that promises to offer users a more interactive way to talk to computers.

First impression of the OOMouse? Wow! Never have we seen so many buttons on a pointing device (18 at last count). To top it off, it may even be the first mouse to sport an analog joystick on the side.
Private company WarMouse is primarily marketing the OOMousebeing as a peripheral for OpenOffice (a Microsoft Office alternative), but we feel it's targeted at the wrong audience. With the 18 programmable mouse buttons, clickable scroll wheel, three different button modes (key, keypress, and macro), and up to 16 macros on the joystick, the OOMouse can launch 52 different commands with … Read more
