First Look: Microsoft Wedge Touch Mouse

Microsoft Wedge Touch MouseAs a mobile user, I’ve been using some form of mobile computing device for as long as I can remember. Invariably, a mouse of some sort needs to accompany the computer to complete the picture. While computers have advanced, so too has the mouse. Today, I’m  trying out a new type of mouse called the Microsoft Wedge Touch mouse. The so-named “wedge” because of its striking resemblance to a door stop. Was the mouse useful? Is it worth your hard-earned cash? 

Is DIGITS The Future Of Computer Input?

Indeed, there are a number of uses for technology that let’s us control computers with hand gestures – among them, your typical game. But, the implications of this technology becoming mainstream include the final and eventual replacement of the mouse. Check this out:

There are certainly many barriers to this kind of thing becoming a standardiazed input, but Microsoft may be the company to do it. Imagine a future, if you will, a minor operation in both of your wrists to embed a small DIGIT sensor that can be used to control everything from tablets to the radio in your car, to realtime translation of sign language.

There are no more results.
