Microsoft has developed 5 unusual mouse manipulators

This month, Microsoft has released its thinnest keyboard, and also showed a tablet with Microsoft Courier two displays, but in this work with peripheral devices is far from complete.

Cap Mouse

Research division of Microsoft (Microsoft Research) is developing interesting products - mouse manipulators are seriously different from those already become familiar to us today devices.

Side Mouse

Feature of these products, which obtained a photo source, is the ability to recognize multiple touches on the user that will use the new features in the management of PCs using these mice.

Arty Mouse

Each of the five new prototypes uses its own method of detection. In addition, the forms of "rodents" are optimized so that and due to this increase comfort of the user.

Orb Mouse

The most "crazy" (probably unusual and original) source model considers Arty and Side Mouse. The first has two tabs, like the familiar mouse has two buttons and three optical sensor to track movement of the hand, thumb and index finger, the second - completely devoid of any buttons, but instead can recognize through proximity sensor several objects (fingers in this case ) in front of his body on the surface of the table.


In our view the remaining FTIR (Frustrated Total Internal Reflection, c camera inside), Orb Mouse (with the IR camera detects touches on the entire spherical surface) and Cap Mouse (respectively, having a matrix of electrodes - capacitive sensors, where the approximation of the object of any material to the active surface leads to changes in the capacity of the condenser, generator parameters and ultimately to the switching of switching element) not less than original.

For a preliminary assessment of the potential of each of the models you can view the video.

Semiconductor laser to record a multi-layer Blu-ray Disc

Blue-violet semiconductor laser (wavelength - 405 nm), in the pulse mode having optical power 500 mW, established specialists Sharp. Novelty is designed for optical drives with recording function drives Blu-ray Disc (BD).

Above capacity is sufficient to record information at a speed of 8x for three-layer and four-layer media. In June, Japanese manufacturers started producing such laser power 320 mW.

To increase the power, we apply a new method of processing the verge of the resonator, which is usually in a semiconductor laser is protected by a dielectric film. Amorphous film dielectric absorbs light, causing loss of power and eventually - to the degradation of the laser. The new laser, until the formation of the dielectric film developers have formed another layer of crystal aluminum oxynitride (AION). It was grown by epitaxial growth so that the axis of the crystal growth of aluminum oxynitride and the main crystal coincide.

Serial production of the new product is not planned yet, because the specification of three-layer and four-layer Blu-ray media has not yet been adopted. However, according to the company, she is ready for mass production.

Photo of gScreen Spacebook - an expensive laptop with two screens!

Not so common desktop workstations with two monitors, and only mobile - even rarer. Company gScreen forthcoming laptop model with a pair of screens dimension 15,4 "- Spacebook.

The network has the first real (not simulated) photos Spacebook, which resulted in the source. These notebooks are oriented manufacturer of military, professional designers, professionals working with video, photographs and all those who need more space on your desktop PC.

Especially mobile, of course, this computer will not. His body will weigh about 6 kg, and in performance with 16 - or 17-inch screens, and even more. Two-system - a special design, the second monitor will leave because of the first thanks to a complicated scheme and slide fasteners.

Work gScreen Spacebook be running Windows 7, and his «heart» become CPU Intel Series Core 2 Duo. RAM can be up to 4 GB, subsystem video - based on the discrete card NVIDIA GF900M GT. HDD will be installed with speed 7200 rpm. And battery - 6 - or 9-tiled. Unlike notebooks this mobile PC will be equipped with more and DVD-drive.

For such an unusual laptop will have to pay a considerable sum, according to preliminary data, it will be quite round - 3000 U.S. Perhaps, gScreen have time to come up with Spacebook on the market by the end of the year.
