Sigma SGM2 Hybrid Mouse
Sigma says it offers a uniquely flexible computer controller with its recently introduced SGM2 presentation mouse. The trigger-like pointer is meant to be held in the hand for slideshows and other visual presentations, giving speakers the opportunity to retain full control over the mouse courtesy of a trackball. The SGM2 is instantly usable as a desktop mouse, however; Sigma adds that three points on the bottom of the controller allow it to rest on a solid surface for more conventional use. It connects to a Mac or Windows PC through USB and can toggle between 400 and 800 DPI to prevent mistakes during keynotes. Sigma is already shipping the SGM2 in Japan with open pricing.
