Nowadays many easy tasks with computers still require different devices and activities, causing a break in work-flow, connectivity, and productivity. To solve this problem Laura Sapiens created Ego! Smartmouse, a versatile and convenient device that allows you to move between computers, interact and access your personal digital identity. If the traditional mouse has ever yet had a makeover, this would be it.
With the Ego! Smartmouse you can:
● Interact both in 2D and 3D
● Store and transfer files with ease
● Seamlessly authenticate into computers and systems
● Easily switch from one computer to another
Enjoy a unique interaction experience with your surrounding digital environment. Every desktop, laptop, smart-TV, projector and whiteboard can be instantly customized, allowing you to find what you like, what you are looking for or what you were doing on another computer.
Going beyond functionality, the Ego! Smartmouse does all of this without compromising on style and design. It is studied with great attention to details in order to maximize comfort and usability in its different grips and uses and, thanks to its symmetrical design, can be easily customized for both left-handed and right-handed users. Ego! Smartmouse is based on a Linux OS running on a 400 Mhz ARM9 microcontroller and it has a flash memory up to 4GB. It embeds a number of sensors to enable both 2D and 3D features: accelerometer, gyroscope, compass and an optical mouse sensor. The communication is guaranteed by a Bluetooth chip. It further integrates a VGA camera, a touch surface, vibration motor and LEDs. The Li-Po battery is rechargeable via micro-USB and its low power consumption guarantees an intense and prolonged use.
