Or is it a mouse with a built-in keyboard? I’m not sure, but the idea behind the CombiMouse is to eliminate the transition your hand makes between keyboard and mouse all day long The right portion of the split keyboard is moveable and allows the user to keep his or her hand in place while using that half of the keyboard as a mouse as well Some of the keys on the right half of the keyboard also double as the mouse buttons when in mouse mode. Also featured on the keyboard are multimedia keys and a scroll wheel
This device has gone through a few rounds of usability testing and the maker has made some refinements as recently as last month The product should be available commercially soon, so keep your eyes open for it See www.combimouse.com for more pics and details.
