Still remember about Swiftpoint mouse we talked about before? Finally I got the chance to review this cool device.
Though it was recommended to charge it fully before using, I couldn’t resist myself tearing the box and jump on my laptop with it. Inside the box, you’ll find Swiftpoint mouse, USB receiver/charger, parking accessory, and a user guide. The Rapid Charge feature of the mouse was quite impressive which let me use it for more than an hour by charging it only few minutes. That one hour of use resulted cramp on my hand due to the unusual size, shape and working process I guess, that disappeared with further use later on, giving me a feel that this mouse is actually meant for using on the go. Though the mouse is smaller than those we see around, it’s not too small to hold it as a pen, gliding easily on the laptop palm rest. However, as 10″ laptop user, I have difficulty using this mouse on the palm rest due to the lack of sufficient space.
No driver required to use the mouse, the plug-and-play simplicity enables the mouse to be operated quickly on any operating system. The sensor of the mouse is so powerful to enable precise and accurate operation. Scrolling over documents is super easy and stylish, just I had to tilt the mouse and slide the scroll wheel. Moreover, the Slide Scroll feature of the mouse enabled page through scrolling and zooming to get a closer look. The inclusion of Smart Touch feature made it energy efficient by stopping the movement of the mouse pointer when the finger grip doesn’t detect my finger on it. The customizable up direction is another feature that made me amazed which enabled me changing the up direction of the pointer according to my need.
The USB dock charging system is really a handy feature of the mouse that not only can receive wireless signal from up to 30 feet distance, it also charges the mouse docked securely with the laptop. This arrangement also gives users the freedom to move as they want, without worrying about misplacing the mouse. A full charge takes only around one and a half hour which enabled me using the mouse since last 4 days and still going on. The mouse LED as the battery status indicator let me know that further charging is not required yet. I am pretty happy with Swiftpoint mouse, however, I may only use it when traveling instead of using it as a general mouse at home.

Until now, people preserve the following type of food in refrigerator in a vinyl bag; however, the freshness of the food did not last long even if its kept under freezing temperature. As a solution to this, some company introduced vacuum food keeper. These machine were worked well in an American home environment. Nevertheless, this product was wasting a lot of vinyl bag, and the bulkiness were not suitable for both European and Asian home environment. Due to its size and functionality, the product needed major improvement for them to globally successful.

This product represents a combination of modern as well as traditional features of a telephone. Icono has been designed to offer a unique experience to its users. The design is based on the hand gesture that people use to represent the telephone. There are two parts of this handset, one is earphone and another one is microphone. Therefore, the user has to use the iconic gesture while using the telephone. The modern part of this device includes the touch screen that shows the animated path to the user for dialing the numbers. Overall, this two-piece design is sleek, impressive and creates a touching interaction between the phone and user.

The Icono has created a new experience for the telephone, which is a very traditional product. I have based my design on the iconic hand gesture people use to represent the telephone. The handset is divided into two parts, earphone and microphone. This invites the user to use the iconic gesture when using the phone. When the user dials the numbers, an animated path is shown on the touch screen. Therefore, people start to remember the person by their unique pattern rather than the numbers. This, together with the two-piece handset creates a more emotional interaction between the phone and the user.
