Adopting a healthy lifestyle might not seem that hard on the outset. You ate a lot of cheeseburgers and drank a lot of soda, and now you’re going to stop doing that. But a new study in mice suggests that it takes a while for the gut’s bacterial zoo, or microbiome, to adapt to dietary changes. If the results hold in…
While a lot of televisions rattle off specs to make them appealing for PC gaming, and a lot of PC manufacturers shrink down their systems so they’ll fit in your media center, there’s still been one major issue with the concept of PC gaming from your couch.
The wireless link between your mouse and dongle might not be as useful as you think. A new hack shows that the links are often unencrypted and can be used to gain control of your computer.
The mouse is anathema to Apple’s grand utopian touch-based future, in which nothing but the supple pads of your ten digits (and a Pencil?) dictate how you navigate a digital interface. The new Magic Trackpad 2 is the fullest realization of that future for desktop users. I’m enamored, but mostly just want my mouse back.
Roughly three million years ago, when I’d just started at Gizmodo, Logitech’s Performance Mouse MX won our Best Wireless Mouse Battlemodo. It was a triumph of ergonomics and it was a joy to use. Well, almost four years later, it’s received an update: the MX Master.
Razer loves to steal the show. Every CES, there's some crazy new project from the gaming hardware company. Apparently their longtime rival Mad Catz was having enough of that, because they pulled out all the freaking stops this year.
We've been able to grow organs in labs for some time now. But what if you could grow them directly inside a living body just by injecting a few cells? It looks like now we can, at least in a limited way.
It's hard to say if the Macintosh would've been so successful if it hadn't had such a revolutionary interface—namely, the mouse. While Apple didn't invent the mouse, it did commission the now legendary engineer Jim Yurchenco to make it viable. And he looked to Steve Jobs' former employer for inspiration.
Imagine if your mouse was more like a games controller, providing feedback as you navigated your desktop. Well, Apple's certainly had that idea—and described it in this recently approved patent for a mouse that reacts to your use.
Last year, scientists did the wacky and cool thing of making a mouse brain transparent. Now they've gone and done it to an entire mouse by pumping detergent through its veins. The transparent mouse looks like gross rodent jello (yes, there is a photo), but it's also an incredible new way to study what intact organs…
Anyone who tries to play PC games on their TV inevitably runs into the same problem: What do you do with that damn keyboard and mouse? Roccat has a clever if not super elegant solution. Just put an entire desk-top on your lap.
The daughter of Osamu Tezuka, legendary creator of Astro Boy, Black Jack, and Buddha, recently discovered some of her father's locked away sketches, including a handful of drawings of a rather voluptuous mouse.
Have you ever wondered why your mouse cursor rests ever so slightly to the left? Chances are, that little arrow on an incline is so ubiquitous that you've never even thought twice about its 45-degree angle. As it turns out, there's a very good reason for it. Or was, anyway, back in a more pixelated age.
Touchpads? Meh. Touchscreens? Bleh. Powergloves? Oh hell yes. Unfortunately/Obviously no one is in the business of making powerglove pointer devices for your computer right now, but don't let that stop you from hacking together your own, you wonderful psycho.
With tablets and trackpad-based laptops slowly taking over the world, using an actually old-fashioned mouse seems to be becoming a niche passion for an increasingly small but devoted few. Maybe the mouse should just die already, but I can't be only one who just can't give it up.
If you can't quite stretch to a full suit, then maybe you can make do with am Iron Man mouse to satisfy your super hero hankerings.
A beefed up computer ensures you can actually play the latest and greatest PC gaming titles, but if you want to compete online with even a marginal level of success, you're going to need to get yourself a kick-ass mouse as well. Gigabyte's new Aivia Uranium seems to fit the bill, particularly if you want to go…
Stanford scientists have developed a technique which lets them turn a brain completely transparent—without causing any damage at all to its structure.
Jeff de Boer's elaborate suits of armor imagine a fanciful world in which cats and mice have learned to smith metal and construct for themselves often ornate suits of armor. Through the years, he's expanded his visions of animal armor, creating armor inspired by Medieval times, Ancient Rome, the Renaissance Era, and…
