This Concept Mouse Fits Your Hand Like a Glove (2)

In our opinion, as long as the mostly-useless keypad is a standard on desktop keyboards, handling the mouse could be uncomfortable to the wrist and arm. This concept design, however, tries to ease the very awkward mouse handling. The G50 Vanguard comes with a sculpted style that fits your hand by placing it flat on the surface with fingers spread out. In a way, you move your mouse like a rag across the desk. A sculpted mouse such as this can go both ways. True, it may ease handling a bit, but the lack of "wiggle room" could cause more discomfort to the hand. It would still be better if the mouse can be placed where the keypad wastes precious space. Source: Dvice, via CrunchGear Read More

Goofiest Game Gears: Flight Simulators (0)

When board-game creator Milton Bradley joined the Atari bandwagon, "flight-sim" games and gears such as Flight Commander and Cosmic Commander controllers were born. In reality, they were anything but flight-simulators; they were just these little plastic things that your place in front of your TV and offered nothing that you could not do with a joystick. It was a bit of a joke really, but it made many little "Star Raiders" fans happy when it came out. "Star Raiders" was originally an Atari 800 game, but was adapted to the Atari 2600 in the early 80s. One little innovation came out of this: substituting the keyboard with a touch pad. If course (not quite) flight-sim gears paved the way for many other controllers and accessories including flight sticks, yokes, throttles and pedals. For you modern day virtual flight fans, check out Logitech's G940 due on September. Read More

Coolest Mouse Mods (0)

  Either some people just haven't found an outlet to channel their brilliance or they just happen to have a lot of spare time (and a really creative brain). Either way some people come up with the coolest - albeit strange - designs for just about anything - even their mouse. Who would have thought there so much you can do to such a small tool. Here are some of the coolest mouse mod designs: NES Controller Optical MouseFor those who just can't get enough of Nintendo, here's something for you. Created from an optical mouse and a Nintendo controller. You can also make use of the buttons - you know the "A" and "B" buttons - to 'click' on something, links, icons, etc. And yes, you need not exclude the scroll wheel of your optical mouse. This Nes Controller Optical Mouse is designed as such that you need get rid of any normal mouse part.PowerGlove MouseHere's a really ingenious one. The powerglove mouse is made from an old Nintendo PowerGlove. According to Techeblog, this one was made after hours and hours of wiring and hacking. This new version features in game controls that are mapped to the thumb (forward motion), pointer finger (trigger), and arm (camera view). This is perfect for First Person Shooter games. The Minty Optical MouseDon't throw that empty container of Altoids yet! You can use that to make a Minty Optical Mouse. All you need is one Altoids tin, an optical mouse, dremel tools, epoxy glue, a mini-hack saw, and around 4 hours of free time. And just basically put the whole inside of the optical mouse into your Altoids tin can and cut out holes for the wires and the scroll wheel to pass through and you have a minty optical mouse. NES Zapper MouseThis makes us of your old school NES Mouse Gun and a nice gyration mouse. Basically, you have to change the original functionality of the Zapper which uses light detecting technology. Since the gyration mouse does all the hard work , just hack it and wire the left click of the mouse straight to the trigger of the gun. This would provide all the functionality that you would need. Simply wire the mouse to the NES Zapper, allowing for both free range motion sensing and trigger happy left-click action. It's actually quite cool. What it lacks in looks, it makes up for functionality.LCD Mouse ModWe can never have enough LCDs anywhere. You will be needing a Logitech G5 laser mouse and if you have a Nokia 6610 to spare, then you're ready to make your own. First, check how much space you can work on. Then you can start cutting out the shape for your LCD screen one you're done with that, you can start painting. After that, it's all a matter of wiring and testing if your screen actually work. According to the creator of the LCD Mouse Mod, the screen can only show about 1 frame per second, but that is fast enough for general statistics or showing photos. Read More

Universal Remote Tablet Control The House (0)

Ladies and Gentlemen of the techy ilk, the future is here. Or, maybe not yet. I think it is safe to say "it is in the works". The universal remote - not the one that can be programmed to be use on any brand of television by encoding numeric codes - has been around recently, actually. But the problem with fully integrated universal remotes such as Logitech Harmony is that they seriously lack style.David Chacon, the innovator of the Universal Remote v2.0 Tablet has that particular problem in mind when he came up with his design. His concept of the Universal Remote combines both functionality and aesthetics. Charon's idea for the Universal Remote is that it will be flash capable device that would display channel listings to more elaborate menu. And, like in the movies, you can control your whole house using this baby, like controlling the microwave or the bedroom lights. And who knows, maybe even flushing your automatic toileIt will have a wide touchscreen interface. And with the right frequencies and support from outside companies this device will reportedly be able to craft custom graphic user interfaces for a product, too. Production of this device will not happen anytime soon. For now let's just admire its cool, futuristic design and imagine what you will be able to do with it when it is finally available.
