  • For Tablets And Smartphones: Elecom's Stand And Bluetooth 3.0 Keyboard

    There are quite a few stands and keyboards for tablets and smartphones out there, but Elecom‘s TK-FB023E (announced [JP] today) is an especially pretty stand/keyboard set.

  • Elecom Outs Bluetooth 3.0 Mouse

    Elecom’s new Bluetooth 3.0 laser mouse will come with an 800/1600 DPI resolution and a quite compact size of 74.3×52.3×33.4mm. The little thing will weigh 43g without the 2 AAA batteries. As you probably aware BT 3.0 is fast and way better than 2.0. Although I’m not entirely sure a mouse is in need of being potentially able to stream HD video directly to a TV.

  • Japanese company sells Lego ear phones

    This is too sweet: Japan-based gadget maker Elecom will soon start selling the “Sundries PLAYBRICK”, Lego-shaped ear phones [JP]. This is the same company that brought us the “Soundblock”, ultra-cute mini speakers, just recently. Read More

  • EGG Mouse mini: Japanese company sells extra-compact PC mouse

    There are quite a few mini PC mice coming out of Japan, but today Tokyo-based Elecom announced a model, which doesn’t seem very ergonomic to me. The so-called EGG mouse mini [JP] is the smaller version of a mouse Elecom rolled out last year (the – you guessed it – EGG mouse, which you can also see on the picture on the left). Read More

  • Soundblock: Elecom to roll out cute mini-speakers for your iPod

    Japan-based Elecom today announced the Soundblack [JP], an iPod dock connector/speaker for use with a number of iPod models (iPod 5G, iPod touch 1/2G), iPod classic and iPod nano 1/2/3/4G). The 0.04W mini system doesn’t support the iPhone though. Read More

  • Elecom's SDHC card is waterproof, dontcha know

    Need an SDHC card? Need one in 4GB or 8GB? Need one that’s waterproof? Unless you work for Magnum, my guess is “no,” but the option’s there, thanks to Elecom, if you want it. She’s out later this month, but the Japanese firm hasn’t revealed an asking price. Considering you can buy an 8GB SDHC card on Amazon for a little more than $20, Elecom’s new… Read More

  • Elecom multi-card reader

    Do all the varying memory cards require you to travel with tons of readers and cables? Not every USB card reader supports all the cards you have either, right? I feel your pain and so does Elecom, which is why they’ve introduced the MR-C12 USB 2.0 card reader. It comes in a tidy package with a flipup lid that stores your SDHC, SD, MMC, xD, and Memory Stick MagicGate/Pro/Duo cards. It… Read More

  • Lock, Dock, and iPod

    Truth be told, I thought I had seen every last possible iPod accessory — until this lock came along. Seems Japanese company Elecom thought it’d be a good idea to make a three-number combination lock that plugs into the docking part of your iPod so that it won’t get stolen. First off, the cable used for the lock looks like I could cut it with a pair of scissors. Secondly… Read More

  • Elecom SCR-CD0001 Disc Destroyer

    So you’ve just burned some top secret information to a CD, but evil ninjas are on your tail. They are, of course, bent on stealing said top secret information to use for all sorts of diabolical schemes. What do you do? Simple, carry the Elecom SCR-CD0001. When those ninjas are finally closing in, you can just plug the SCR-CD0001 into an available USB port and insert your top secret disc. Read More

  • Elecom Releases Bar-Code Reading Mouse

    During my many years of service as an IT guy in Lousiana, I had a lot of experience with bar code readers. From high-end Symbol handhelds to low-end pen readers (man, I hate pen readers), I’ve seen them all. One thing that has never made sense to me is why they’re not incorporated into more technology. It’s a simple enough piece of machinery, it seems only logical that it… Read More

  • Tiny 3-Port USB Hub: Small, Slick

    The more gear we get, the more USB ports we need to support them. In a day when most computers sport four or fewer ports of the Universal Serial Bus-type, a good USB hub is a must. We find ourselves liking this neat little critter from the geniuses over at Elecom in Japan we found on EverythingUSB. It transforms your measly one USB port into 3, with the top and bottom ports angled so that… Read More
