I am really excited to use this Smartmouse as WII remote as it will make life easier . All these new technologies are showing how much advancement is going on in this era . Majority of the things are becomming mobile and autonomous .Using a mouse as a data centre is an exciting idea as well . I am too anxious to use this mouse in actual .

Cabe, when compared with play station its reasonable, still I feel it is expensive to penetrate the market. I thought that it would be less than 50$.

Pubudu,

It is already out. And it is at the $80 USD price point. It is almost 25% the cost of a Playstation 4, to put it into perspective. Do you think it is priced right?

Pubudu,

The mouse it up for pre-order right now. First deliveries are expected in June. So, head over there today and support their cause!

I would assume the between computers connectivity has a lot to do with device pairing. Microsoft Research did some work in this area. Perhaps exactly what the Ego Mouse uses.

Cadman,

Although a novel way of interfacing, I find using the Wii to be tiring – especially if I am tired.

I couldn't see hapless cubical workers wanting to tire themselves out with something like this.

I believe there are Wiimote hacks/mod that let them be used on a PC, ever try?

I agree with your list, Cabe. Except I have "graduated" from the mouse to the trackpad, at least on an Apple, which is far superior for everything except the cut-and-paste movements required in editing copy. I still need a mouse for that.

"Unauthorized computer use is always an issue, even without this mouse. I think security should always be applied. The real problem is someone might just steal the mouse!"

Cabe, exactly and I meant the same.

This is mighty impressive stuff. The features that really caught my eye is the VGA camera for authentication. I'm concerned about the price range of something this sophisticated though. They should make it affordable for the masses.

Sharon Glotzer and David Pine are hoping to create the first liquid hard drive with liquid nanoparticles that can store 1TB per teaspoon. They aren't the first to find potential data stores, as Harvard researchers have stored 700 TB inside a gram of DNA.
If you see a hitchhiker along the road in Canada this summer, it may not be human. That’s because a robot is thumbing its way across our neighbor to the north as part of a collaborative research project by several Canadian universities.
SpaceX has 3D printed and successfully hot-fired a SuperDraco engine chamber made of Inconel, a high-performance superalloy, using direct metal laser sintering (DMLS). The company's first 3D-printed rocket engine part, a main oxidizer valve body for the Falcon 9 rocket, launched in January and is now qualified on all Falcon 9 flights.
Stanford University researchers have found a way to realize what’s been called the “Holy Grail” of battery-design research -- designing a pure lithium anode for lithium-based batteries. The design has great potential to provide unprecedented efficiency and performance in lithium-based batteries that could substantially drive down the cost of electric vehicles and solve the charging problems associated with smartphones.
UK researchers have come up with a method for machining aerospace-grade, carbon fiber-reinforced composites, along with high-strength aerospace alloys, using an ultrasonically assisted machining device. It also works on high-strength aerospace alloys.
