Here at the Engadget HQ we're very serious about articulating the noise and action of a bow when it comes to our synthesized string instruments, and the O-Bow looks like it could be the low cost solution we were dreaming of. (No, Smule Magic Fiddle doesn't count, it's a devil \"instrument\" and it li

Honestly, while Apple's Magic Mouse is a bit of a pioneer in its application of a multitouch surface on a \"regular\" tracking mouse, it's not exactly easy or comfortable to perform multitouch gestures with it. Plus there's the little problem of no official driver for Windows. Speedlink's Cue mouse l

We've seen the Cyber Sport Orbita Mouse bouncing around the Internets for about a year in search of a manufacturer. Now they've got it, with a corresponding January 2009 retail delivery date to match. The big selling point on this 800 DPI mouse is the use of a spinning scroll-wheel that replaces th

Even if we could verify the claim, what's the point? The world's smallest mouse is likely to be as useful as the world's smallest keyboard. The Z-Nano USB mouse measures 42 x 21 x 17.65-mm and, amazingly, includes itty bitty left- and right-click and up- and down-scroll buttons. Available now for $

Remember that mysterious LG KS500 we spotted slouching at the FCC's main desk back in August? No? It's all good -- Vodafone is apparently looking to remind you by introducing the decidedly so-so slider with its own logo. Obviously, there's still a great chance we North Americans see this one over he

Targus is making a big deal about how it's launching its first-ever line of Mac accessories, but we're not seeing much here that's particularly platform-dependent -- just a lot of gray and white plastic.

So we know that Microsoft is gearing up to launch those new \"Blue Track\" mice on September 9th, but Ars Technica says that there's a good chance we'll be getting new webcams and -- surprise! -- Zunes as well.

Buffalo's mice designers are at it again, somehow figuring out how to turn a vanilla mousing peripheral into something out of the ordinary. The BOMC2-Y01 series may not be as retro-inspired as the firm's D-Pad critters, but the built-in Mirrored Reflection Lens (MRL) should purportedly make even th
