Smartmouse that works in the air

There are different kind of mouse and keyboards available in the market. The variety of computer mouse available is incredible and one mouse may not be able to satisfy a computer user. Some people need a mouse for the office, a mouse for on the go, a mouse to use from across the room and a mouse to use on the couch.

A new mouse is on Kickstarter called the Ego! Smartmouse and it looks like a single mouse that can do just about anything you might want a mouse to do. You can use this mouse on the surface of your desk like you would any other mouse. You can also pick the mouse up, walk across the room, plop down on the couch and use the Ego! Smartmouse in the air like a 3-D pointing device.

The little mouse can even be used as a portable game controller for gaming from across the room. The mouse runs the Linux operating system and has an internal 400 MHz ARM-9 microcontroller. The mouse also has up to 4 GB of integrated memory along with a number of sensors including an accelerometer, gyroscope, compass and an optical mouse sensor.

Wireless connectivity for the mouse is handled by an integrated Bluetooth chip. Other hardware features for the mouse include a VGA resolution camera, touch surface, a vibration motor and LEDs. The mouse uses a lithium polymer rechargeable battery that gets power via a micro-USB port.
