Will you fancy this camera equipped mouse?
Japanese always tend to come up with gadget accessories that are never heard or even given a thought before by intuitive minds. This time around it is a mouse that can function as a webcam as well. The Camera Mouse has a 1200 dpi sensor that makes it capable of shooting sharp images at 1600 x 1200 pixel resolution. The mouse is quite light-weight at 87 grams and measures 57 x 104 x 37 mm (W x D x H). One thing this mouse facilitates is in taking quick pictures with flexible viewing angle that otherwise is not possible with a regular webcam.
Camera Mouse can take pictures in a wide array of formats including JPG, PNG etc. and also record videos in WMV, AVI and WMA. Not only taking pictures or shooting videos in a jiffy, but the computer peripheral can also read QR codes and scan documents for added functionality.
The price tag of 4,200 Yen (40 US Dollar) might seem a bit over the top but for people who are looking for exactly this kind of shooting mode when working on their laptop or desktop PC. You can pre-order it now or buy it at the time of release in Japan.
