In a dark castle overlooking a small European village, lightning flashed through the sky, illuminating the fear and hatred of those below. Within his laboratory, Dr. Frankenstein was creating a beast so fearsome, so terrifying, that even by today’s standards, is still scary enough to seem real for the odd preteen kid. Anyway, as it seems, Canon seems to have Dr. Frankenstein as one of it’s patron saints, if this mouse is anything to go by. Replacing the innocent nature of the mouse, with more buttons on a dedicated Warcraft gaming mouse, a small LCD screen enables users to calculate small sums, while accessing applications from the wall of buttons there. Primarily aimed at… business people who seemingly do not understand that a calculator is available on one’s own computer. The device is meant to be part of a package of wireless interface tools that Canon is currently developing.
When the mouse is being used as a…normal mouse, there are software functions designed to disable the keypad, to prevent accidental button presses. Powered with either triple A batteries, or through solar energy, the X Mark I mouse launches soon in the United States. So just to recap, it’s a wireless mouse, keypad, and calculator. Dr. Frankenstein would be proud of Canon, as it seems
