    Apple has a new patent application with the USPTO (via AppleInsider) for a better mouse that is far more sensitive to how much pressure a user applies with each click, and provides them with haptic (read: vibration) feedback to let them know what kind of input was registered when they clicked. The mouse design would make it possible to click with less force to perform actions like selecting a… Read More

    Still Think The Mouse Isn't Dead?

    We’ve been over this. But many of you felt the need to argue — passionately — about the fate of an input device we all use today: the mouse. I say it’s dead. Well not dead, dead — yet. But the wheels are clearly in motion. Many disagree. And I thought it was worth bringing up again upon seeing the demo video that Microsoft put out there for Windows 8. I mean… Read More

    This mouse is made of felt. Designer Joey Roth, he of the ceramic speakers, made it and he’s turning the cold, hard experience of mousing into a soft and sassy experience akin to rubbing a tame squirrel. He should be making the mice available over the next few month or, barring that, you could just tame a squirrel. via BB Read More

  • The Chameleon X-1 Is Both Mouse And Gamepad? Witch! Burn The Witch!

    Let me just say that when this thing was first brought to my attention, I made just about the sourest “skeptical face” I’ve ever made, and that’s saying something. But I’m going to be honest, when I saw what they’d done, I relaxed a bit, though my skepticism is still mostly intact. I mean, there are so many ways this thing could have totally sucked, but it… Read More

    History has always told us that the chimera is bad for business. Centaurs were too sassy to survive and the basilisk was really mean. But what about a rat connected to an electronic car by its brain? That’s just creepy. This creature, made by researchers at the University of Tokyo, trained a rat to move a small car with only its brain. Apparently the car is directly wired to the… Read More

    Asus just had a new Lamborghini labeled product get approved by the FCC, for better or worse. The new mouse joins an already varied and colorful line of ill-advised products. I mean, really? Who buys a Lamborghini licensed mouse or laptop? If you own the car, you probably buy something a bit more high end, and if don’t have the car, you shouldn’t use one.
