Mouse with built-in SD card reader

sd-card-mouse.jpgDespite the fact that many computers and notebooks these days come with built-in memory card readers, there are still a whole generation of people who have not yet picked up a new machine, preferring to stick to their ailing computers due to the lack of monetary fortitude. Chances are pretty high that this group are still stuck with a PS/2 port to hook up their mice as the two available USB ports (1.1 at that) are already occupied with a printer and a VoIP phone. How then, will they have the space to view information on an SD/MMC memory card? The answer is simple, by presenting the user with a USB-powered optical mouse that comes with a built-in SD/MMC memory card slot.

This unique solution is extremely portable and would be a welcome addition to those who have not yet upgraded their aging computers. The inclusion of a retractable cable that measures 75cm long when fully extended makes transporting this mouse a joy while keeping your workspace neat and tidy. Boasting a highly ergonomic design, you won’t find yourself suffering from RSI anytime soon, while the high precision 800dpi optical sensor makes it suitable for both casual gaming and everyday office tasks.

Those who do not have any available USB ports can always hook up this mouse to the included USB-to-PS/2 converter. The SD/MMC memory card slot is located at the rear end of the mouse, but it looks pretty uncomfortable using the mouse while a memory card is slotted in. I guess you can’t really complain too much considering the stupendously low, low price of just £5.95. Makes for a great stocking stuffer eh.
