MoGo Mouse X54 - business card sized notebook mouse

Posted on Sunday, Jan 14 2007 @ 21:37 CET by Thomas De Maesschalck
The MoGo Mouse X54 from Newton Peripherals is likely one of the smallest notebook mice on Earth. This mouse is just as small as a business card and is stored and recharged in your notebook's ExpressCard/54 card slot.

The Mogo Mouse X54 uses Bluetooth and should work on any surface thanks to its optical sensor, according to Newton Peripherals. It features a central scroll pad and is automatically activated when you flip it out your laptop's ExpressCard/54 slot.

The developers say it should be quite comfortable because of its deep finger grooves and the integrated "kickstand". I haven't tested this mouse yet and it's kinda hard to predict how ergonomic this mouse will feel but according to Newton Peripherals people who have used the MoGo Mouse X54 almost unanimously said that it's very comfortable working with the mouse.

Specifications:
  • Hardware: ExpressCard/54 slot, USB Bluetooth adaptor or embedded Bluetooth
  • OS: works on Windows XP and Mac OS X
  • Bluetooth 2.0 EDR compliant
  • Resolution: 800 DPI
  • Working range: up to 30 feet (10m)
  • RF transmit power operating: less than 4dBm
  • Battery voltage: 4.2V
  • Battery capacity: 90mAh
  • Operating current: ~ 20 mA Internal Rechargeable
  • Standby current: less than 10mA
  • Dimensions: 3.1 x 2.125" x .2 inches (78 x 54 x 5 mm)
  • Weight: .5 oz or 14 grams
  • The Mogo Mouse X54 will be available in the second quarter of this year. Unfortunately it's pretty expensive, the expected retail price is $79.99.

    Nice piece of technology. Pretty innovative to create a mouse that slides into the expresscard slot.
