CES 2006: MoGo Mouse
CES is huge. And you end up walking endlessly amidst a vast deluge of products, so it's actually kind of nice when a product comes to you, which is what happened to us as we were standing in line for some water (3 bottles of water + a bag of chips = 10 bucks here, by the way). A man whips out the MoGo Mouse, opens a G4 laptop and does a short sweet demo for us. I was quickly impressed.
The Mogo Mouse is a business card-sized, portable, bluetooth mouse that stores and charges inside the PC slot in your laptop (very cool). Despite its size, it's a full-sized mouse that automatically levers the mouse up into your hand as you work. It makes travelling with your laptop so much easier. I've got the Apple wireless mouse and it's a pain in the ass. The batteries need replacing more often than I would like and it's surprisingly heavy and bulky. I loved that the MoGo Mouse man used the mouse right on the laptop which is what I try to do with the Apple mouse. After all, if I'm bringing my computer everywhere, I don't really want to bring a bulky mouse and mousepad with me.
