Microsoft has a new keyboard and mouse combo out called the Sculpt Ergonomic Desktop, and they don’t look like your average devices. Instead of a flat keyboard, the device is split into two sections, giving users a domed and angled typing surface. The idea is that the user’s wrists and forearms will be more relaxed and resist pronation; the curvature of the keyboard is designed to follow the curve of your fingertips for a more “natural feel” when typing. The mouse has the same concept in mind, and the circular device had the right and left buttons slid just a bit to the... Read more...
Douglas Carl Engelbart, American engineer and inventor of the computer mouse, passed away in his home in Atherton, California, on July 2, 2013 at the age of 88, according to the Los Angeles Times. The cause of his death is not immediately clear, though his daughter told LAT that his health had been on the decline the past few months up until he died in his sleep. This was a man who was at the forefront of computing and of several technologies we take for granted today. In one way or another, he worked on early versions of email, word processing, and video teleconferences at a California research... Read more...

On the lookout for the ultimate Windows mouse? Well, given that's how Microsoft touts its Sculpt Comfort Mouse, the company looks to have you covered. Microsoft calls the mouse "Sculpt" because it's designed to fit perfectly in your hand, with a contoured left side - unfortunately, lefties are once again ignored. Also on the left side is what sets this mouse apart from all the rest: a Windows touch tab. This blue button has multiple functions. You can click it to switch between your desktop app and the Windows Start screen, swipe up to cycle through all open apps (in the Start screen) or down to... Read more...

The gaming peripheral gurus at Razer announced today the revamping of its popular DeathAdder mouse, though don't worry if you've grown accustomed to the original model, this isn't a complete redesign. Instead, Razer focused its efforts on upgrading the sensor and making the side grips more comfortable. "We didn’t want to fix anything that wasn’t broken," said Robert Krakoff, president of Razer USA. "We focused instead on enhancing and optimizing the proven merits of the Razer DeathAdder, utilizing next generation technologies and further ergonomics tweaks to make a perfect gaming mouse...

A poster on an overclocking forum is drawing widespread Internet attention over claims that Razer's Naga mouse requires a persistent Internet connection in order for it to work properly. The special drivers supposedly require that Naga owners create an account with Razer before they're allowed to configure the mouse, and if Razer's servers go down -- as they were when "channelx99" tried to activate his account -- well, tough luck. Channelx99 is referring to Razer's Synapse 2.0 software in his forum post. Without it, you can still use the Naga mouse, you just can't customize all those fancy extra... Read more...

If we told you that most eye-controlled computing devices cost as much as $$5,000 or $7,000, would you be surprised? Would you be even more surprised that London scientists have developed a similarly capable device for about thirty bucks using off the shelf parts and a couple of hacked video game consoles? According to CNN, Dr. Aldo Faisal, the lead researcher on the project, was toying with a deconstructed video game console and made an intriguing discovery: "I hacked it and discovered it was very fast and better than any webcam for movement,” he said. “Actually, it was so fast that...

Remember that BMW-inspired gaming tower from a while back? Hopefully you've still got yours, because a new accessory has cropped up to complete the pairing. BMW and Thermaltake have joined forces in order to provide the Level 10 M gaming mouse, which might be the most insane looking mousing device this side of a Razer Naga.
