Genius outs wireless mouse with capacitor

Taiwanese computer peripherals maker Genius has just released its DX-ECO BlueEye Mouse. The mouse centers on a recharge time of just three minutes and will allow the mouse to last a whole day thanks to its use of a capacitor rather than a traditional battery. The gold capacitor has a quoted life of 100,000 recharges.

The wireless mouse otherwise uses the 2.4GHz frequency for a range of up to nearly 50 feet. Its pico receiver hides inside the mouse under its top panel. The mouse has a four-way scrolling ability and can switch between 800 and 1600dpi scrolling. Two hot keys allow users to quickly go back or forward on web pages.

The mouse is said to be available now for $40.

    Interesting

    Ever since ultracaps came way down in price and went up astoundingly in capacity, I've been wondering about their potential for a super-fast-recharge smallish-capacity battery. At work we've used a bank of them in place of a "starting motor" for smallish power generation devices.

    With the increasingly minuscule power draw of electronics (my wireless mouse can last months on a pair of AAs) we're getting to the point where it's a real possibility.

    3 minutes actually sounds really long to me; could be to keep the requirements for the wall-wart small, but you should be able to charge a capacitor bank in a few seconds.
