  • Nexus 7000 Mouse Is Ultra Quiet, Not Great For Annoying Co-Workers

    If ordering a new mouse off Amazon — because it looked cool and you have prime — only to find that it clicks like a 1980s keyboard frustrates you, then check out the Nexus 7000 quiet mouse. It has a great shape and look, comes in white or black, has one of those really tiny USB receiver dongles, and costs only $28. [via The Awesomer] Read More

  • The Magic Connector Unifies The Apple Wireless Keyboard And Magic Trackpad

    The Magic Connector is a lot like the BulletTrain adapter. It creates a union between the Apple Wireless Keyboard and the Magic Trackpad, making it one single unit, except without the extra bulk. Video after the break. Read More

  • Power Pod, A Practical, Pellet-Shaped Power Strip

    Let’s be honest for a second. Our power strips are things we chose based on either price or functionality, not elegance or design. That’s okay! They sit behind our desks, quietly and modestly routing electricity and preventing surges. But what if you want one in plain view? Wouldn’t you like it to be… just a little bit sexy? Read More

  • Microsoft Announces Some New Mice: Express Mouse And Comfort Mouse

    Microsoft released some new mice today with some pretty direct names: Express Mouse and Comfort Mouse. I’d have gone with Magic Mouse, but Apple probably already took that. Read More

  • Pentel airpenPocket Picks Up Handwriting, Sends To Phone Or PC Over Bluetooth

    The airpenPocket is Pentel’s update to the aging airpenMini. Coming out in mid-February, this digital pen can transmit handwriting data via Bluetooth. The airpenMini was only able to export the data over USB. When writing or drawing, on paper sizes up to A4, the information is sent to a memory unit with the original ultrasonic infrared method. The memory unit is the middle man between… Read More

  • BookArc Makes Promises For MacBook Air Experience, Speed And Style Among Them

    So you got a new MacBook Air. Big deal, right? How have you been using it on your desk? Surely you have an external monitor, trackpad and keyboard. But, somethings missing, isn’t it? Why lie the MBA flat on the desktop, especially since there is now the BookArc from 12 South. Read More

  • Sharp Shooter Attachment For Playstation Move Headshots My Heart

    I get a good feeling from this particular peripheral. I’m already partial to the Playstation Move, which I think will make for some utterly fantastic light-gun games, but this Sharp Shooter attachment is going to make things all the better. I think I prefer the sub-machinegun look better than the one we first saw at E3. Read More

  • Multi-Card SD And MicroSD Readers From Elecom

    These little gadgets are… very practical. I’m surprised this kind of thing isn’t more common. Basically you’ve just got one doodad with room for multiple cards of the same type. So if you need to duplicate or transfer files from one to the other, no middle step, you just plug ’em both in to the USB thing and boom, you’re copying. Read More

  • Razer's Nostromo, For WASDers Who Don't Need The Rest Of The Keyboard

    We’ve seen things like this before, and while they do look comfortable, I’m wary of customizing my desktop to the point where I have a whole different set of WASD keys for my game-playing convenience. If I did get a WASD-gripper, though, this Nostromo from Razer is looking like a pretty solid choice. It’s a hell of a lot like the old Belkin one, but adds improved on-board… Read More

  • New Toshiba HDD Withstands Extreme Temperatures, Can Be Used 24/7

    Toshiba announced [PDF] the MK1060GSCX today, a 2.5-inch SATA type HDD with 100GB capacity that’s designed for use in “rugged operating environments”. The company says the hard drive can be used 24 hours a day in computing, industrial and other non-conventional environments (i.e. in ATMs, ruggedized computers, factories etc.). Read More

  • Thou Shalt Not Surge


    This is still just a concept, but the cruciform Power/Strip surge protector does more than keep your gadgets pious. Oversized adapters and bricks are welcome on its spreading crossbars, and a full 12 outlets means no more arguments among your disciples over who gets to charge first. [via CNET] Read More

  • Mag Gun Is Like A Game Gun Crossed With A Wiimote

    I’ve tried out a few of these gun-like controllers in my time, from the silly (just a controller shaped like a gun) to the awesome (pico-projector built-in), and of course everyone loves the Redneck Techie and his Game Gun. But variety is the spice of life, and this Mag Gun has a different system than all of them that may make it worth a look. Read More

  • New 360 Racing Wheel From Mad Catz

    Mad Catz is dropping mad gearz all over Gamescom. Unfortunately, they haven’t sent us mad picz, so some details escape us. Basically, though, you’re looking at a nice racing wheel for the Xbox 360 with the usual fixins: battery power, pedals, buttons, the works. Update: got another picture for you. Read More

  • Mad Catz Announces amBX-Powered Lights And Keyboard (Update: More Pics)

    I’m not sure I buy the whole amBX deal. For one thing, they’ve chosen a bothersome capitalization scheme. For another, it seems… excessive. I’m all for immersion, but I’d take Eyefinity and surround sound over mood lighting any day. As for keyboard lighting, I can see that, as long as it’s truly game-related, like Razer’s StarCraft 2 stuff. The… Read More

  • THQ's uDraw GameTablet Is… A Wiicom Tablet

    Thank god another peripheral maker has made something that I can pun on with “Wii.” The other options are getting stale. So, this Wiicom tablet (reference, if you’re not clued in) is an accessory that lets you draw inside Wii games. Great! Not sure many games were really crying out for this, since you already control a free cursor and “drawing” games work better on… Read More

  • Power Strip-like USB Hub

    A power strip-like USB hub with four ports than can be turned on or off individually? That, and another version with seven ports, is what Japanese accessory maker Elecom announced [JP] today. Read More

  • Wireless mouse with built-in gyro sensor for holding presentations

    Japan-based Sanwa Supply is offering a wireless mouse [JP] that’s specifically designed for controlling presentations. Thanks to the built-in gyro sensor, you can move the mouse around like a Wiimote to highlight certain areas with a laser pointer (which is also built in) or light, zoom in or out of pages, write or underline text with a virtual pen, flip pages by moving your hand etc. Read More

  • Forcetek's Xio arm-mounted controller is… promising?

    What can one say about a controller that fits onto your arm like a brace and uses the position of your elbow and wrist to control games? Well, it’s kind of awesome: more hardware during a decidedly minimalist gaming trend. But it’s also extremely limited and potentially very expensive. As I noted when they announced it, it’s based on technology used for physical therapy… Read More

  • Hands-on: Razer's StarCraft II-themed mouse, keyboard, and headset


    For the last six months or so, whenever I was on Razer’s site for whatever reason, I always would check the StarCraft II section for updates. There were silhouettes there for ages, teasing Blizzard-branded peripherals, yet aside from the messenger bag we gave away, we saw no more of said peripherals than we saw of the dark side of the moon. But E3 this year was the launch date, and I… Read More

  • SteelSeries announces Spectrum 5xb and 4xb headsets at E3

    SteelSeries announced at E3 today three new peripherals for the XBox 360: the Spectrum 5xb premium headset, the Spectrum 4xb entry-level headset, and the Spectrum AudioMixer which “allows any headset with a microphone and 3.5mm jacks to function with Xbox 360 gameplay and Xbox LIVE chat”. The Spectrum AudioMixer is included in the box with both the 5xb and 4xb headsets. Read More
