new genius wireless mouse, battery free

an interesting idea, batteries replaced by capacitor , which will (i am certain of this) in turn allow ultra fast charging times. furthermore it seems that it uses something call blue eye (sensor). this really caught my eye because it resembles bluetrack very much.

does anyone have any info on this sensor? it makes me rethink the whole "i will never buy wireless mouse again" thingy:D

They claim 3 minutes charging time and a full charge should last 4 hours.

Sensor will most likely be **** because it will be a low power sensor with active power saving mode.

I doubt we´'ll see that in a gaming grade mouse soon, high performance sensor without power saving mode just needs way more power.

But a charge doesn't have to last that long to make such a mouse interesting for gaming, if it's done right.
Let's say you manage to get 2-3 hours playing time out of one charge and have a docking station with an extra replaceable capacitor. That way you always have a fully charged capacitor to change, combine that with a system that lets you change them pretty fast (for example between rounds) and and that thing could be quite interesting.

Surely it's not optimal and not verybody wan't to change the capacitor that often but for others it offers the "freedom" of wireless with less added weight.

actually they claim that a full charge should last a whole week (3 min charging time), which is by my experience with capacitors, quite possible. for instance a friend of mine has an RC helicopter which is powered by a capacitor, which allows for 1 whole hour of flight time with 10 min charging, which is in fact as good as it gets. considering how much more power the electric motor requires, it's very much doable.

did some reading on the sensor, and it seems it's a renamed microsoft bluetrack, pretty surprising to say the least. if this is true the prediction must be certainly off, which i find very pleasing.

i do wonder however, whats the maximum control rate of the sensor. i've read that bluetrack maxes out at 1 m/s, but somwhere i've read that sidewinder x8 achieved above 3m/s with the same sensor. someone else might shed some light to the question...

I had borrowed X8 from a friend and with logger i've reached 4.8m/s iirc, beyond that i had clipping(neg. accel.), on razer destructor.
