The Logitech Cube Presenter / Mouse

logitech logoLogitech picked up an Innovation award at the recent Consumer Electronics Show for their new Cube, which is a combination mouse and presenter.  It acts as a wireless mouse while being used on any surface, but when picked up it becomes a presenter, or remote control, for your presentation.  The Cube charges via USB and has an on/off switch to save battery life.

Logitech was light on specs in their interview with TPN, but it’s a mouse so there probably isn’t really a lot to say.  For the most information ou can get about product such as this, you simply need to see the video of the Cube in action, which is posted below.  The new Cube will be priced at $69.99 and is available now.  You can visit Logitech to learn more.

Penclic – the Pen Mouse

Penclic MouseSwedish company Penclic think that the pen is mightier than the sword mouse so Andy gets to grips with the Penclic Mouse to see if it’s true.

A picture paints a thousand words and once you’ve seen the picture to the left, you’ll pretty much have grasped (sorry) the concept. You hold the Penclic Mouse as you would hold a pen and the base moves with your hand.

The Penclic Mouse is offered in two models, a wireless R2 and a corded D2, with all the features of a standard mouse, including left & right buttons and a scroll wheel. Available now from good retail stores at around $80 for the wireless version.

Verbatim Ergo Wireless Optical Mouse Review

The folks at Verbatim sent over their new Ergo Wireless Optical Mouse to review. Most of you that have followed me know that I love trackballs, and use them primarily when I am sitting at my desk.  For the first time in at least 10 years I am using this new mouse from Verbatim as my primary mouse if that doesn’t speak volumes nothing should.

Mouses are a dime a dozen and it is really hard to differentiate them apart. Here is what my experiences has been with this Verbatim Ergo mouse. First it fits into my hand like a well oiled and seasoned baseball glove. I’m serious this thing is just easy to hold and is very comfortable.   I like resting my hand on a hard surface and with this optical mouse I do not have to have a stupid mouse pad or anything like that under it. It looks pretty sexy the one I received has this cool red metallic look to it.

Click response is great, while I am not sure a design consideration or not the right click action takes a little bit more force than the standard left click. The roller is responsive. Works with both Windows and Mac.

Priced at $29.00 if your looking for a new mouse definitely consider it and when I am on the go, I will have one of these in my computer bag as well.

Mobile Mouse Remote Trackpad For iPod/iPad/iPhone

I recently bought the newest version of the 32 gigabyte iPod Touch. The latest iPod Touch is one amazing device that has functionality well beyond simple MP3 and video playback.

I’ve started adding some extremely useful apps. One of these apps is Mobile Mouse Remote Trackpad. To use it, you have to download and install a server program on your Mac or Windows machine, and then download and install the app on your iPod, iPad or iPhone. The app connects to your local network via WiFi and searches for and connects to the locally-running server software.

The Mobile Mouse Remote Trackpad app works exactly as advertised. It even adds left and right mouse buttons, along with an on-screen keyboard. This setup works well for use with a home theater PC setup (HTPC) as an easy-to-use hand-held controller.

So far I’m using the free version before deciding whether to move to the paid version. The paid version eliminates a startup nag screen as well as adds additional functionality.
