Asus WX-DL Mouse

Asus has just launched a new 2.4 GHz wireless laser mouse dubbed WX-DL (after one of its designers, David Lewis). Besides the unusual, round shape of the aluminum casing it sports a touch sensitive top area allowing you to use mouse gestures (like Apple’s Magic Mouse), scroll in four directions as well as use it as a simple multimedia remote control.

LaCie Wireless Space

Been looking for a Windows alternative to Apple’s Time Capsule? Here’s LaCie Wireless Space, set for launch in October 2010. Like Time Capsule it’s a combined wireless router and NAS server (it has the same amounts of network ports as well), making it possible for you to backup your data wirelessly, but also the ability to stream digital contents to UPnP/DLNA-compliant network players and iTunes.

Storage-wise you get to pick between a 1TB (price tag set to about $230) or 2TB model and it comes with three USB ports which you can use for additional external storage. Mac users can still use Apple’s Time Machine, which it supports fully, while Windows users get to use Genie Timeline Software which offers similar backup features.

LaCie MosKeyto USB Flash Drive

If you’re looking for a truly portable usb flash drive I don’t think they come much smaller than the MosKeyto by LaCie, measuring less than 20mm and weighs 10 grams. It’s available in 4 and 8GB models and comes with 4GB secure online storage from Wuala.

Logitech K800: Illuminated Keyboard

Logitech has launched K800, a slim, wireless keyboard with illuminated keys. The laser-etched keys are lit up using ambient light sensors to adjust the brightness depending on how dark the room is and built-in motion sensors make sure the backlighting turns off if you’re not using the keyboard – it’s wireless so you might want to save battery juice. If you’re not happy with the automatic detection you can adjust the brightness manually as well.

According to Logitech the K800 offers up to 10 days of battery life (depending on use, of course) and you recharge it with a micro-USB cable. The price is estimated to $99.00 and it’ll be available later this month. K800 keyboard

NES Game Hard Drives

The Etsy shop 8BitMemory offers external USB hard drives encased in classic NES and SNES games (Zelda, Super Mario Bros 1/2/3, Tetris, Metroid, Contra, you name it). Sweet nostalgia. The drives are 2.5" Toshiba models available with up to 1TB of storage and will set you back about $129.99. They’re limited edition and seem to be selling out fast though so hurry over there if you want one.

LaCie XtremKey USB Flash Drive

If you’re – for some reason – tired of USB flash drives to weak to handle a serious beating you should check out LaCie XtremKey, a premium flash memory secured inside 2mm metal pipe casing tolerating 5 meter drops and temperatures from -50°C to +200°C. Also, it’s sealed with wear-resistant screw threads and a rubber O-ring, making it watertight down to 100 meters. The metal casing is constructed with zamac, a metal alloy composed of zinc, aluminum, magnesium and copper which LaCie claims is so strong it can withstand the pressure of a 10-ton truck.

The XtremKey will be available in capacities from 8 to 64GB and will be available from the LaCie Online Store (starting at $49.99) from August.

Optimus Popularis LED Keyboard

Art. Lebedev Studio (the ones behind the USD$2400 Optimus Maximus keyboard) presented a working prototype of their upcoming Optimus Popularis keyboard. This one has 20 less displays than the Maximus, and besides lacking a numeric keypad it uses 64×64 LED displays instead of OLED on the keys to reduce the price tag. The goal is for it to cost “less than $1000” and it’s supposed to be available for preorder later this year and hit the stores early 2011.

Calvin Klein USB Sunglasses

CK Calvin Klein USB Sunglasses

Calvin Klein has gifted a pair of sunglasses with a 4GB USB flash drive. Smart? Well. maybe if you live in southern Italy or California, but it might get a bit tiresome to carry those glasses with you even on rainy days if you need the data. Or just go rockstar and keep ’em on always.

The sunglasses will be available in October 2009 for $199.

Mouse Skype Phone With LCD Display

There’s plenty of mice slash Skype phones out there, but this one claims to be the first one doing it as a classic slider (and it does look like a classic, Nokia cell phone, doesn’t it?). Just slide that thing open for access to its keypad panel, internal speaker and condenser microphone – when closed you can check the caller-ID of who’s calling on the built-in 128×64 LCD display.
