With all due respect to the Author/Inventor, it seems to me essentially UNLIKE a mouse, but rather very similar to a touchpad, though without the feature of touch sensitivity (i.e. tapping). :dubbio:

 

Am I missing something? :unsure:

It seems that "mouse" is catchier than "touchpad".

 

This doesn't seem like a bad project, it is already funded in about 38k USD as we speak.

 

:cheers:

And also much more accurate and intuitive to use, BTW. ;)

No, the idea is as good as it can be (though inaccurately represented) but if I get it right it's use is limited to tablets (because laptops/notebooks/netbooks ALREADY have a touchpad) and to tablet use WHEN you have a plain, steady desk to project on.
What I actually miss on a tablet in those conditions is however more the lack of a keyboard than the lack of a mouse (or of the touchpad) for which the touchscreen is usually IMHO "good enough" substitute.
Possibly *something like*:
http://www.celluon.com/products.php
which also doubles as a mouse touchpad. :unsure: might be more useful, I remember trying something similar many years ago (it was some third party accessory for the Palm III or IV, cannot remember details) and it wasn't that bad as a keyboard substitute.


And from what can be get from TheHive's :) ONLY SEEMINGLY duplicate post:

they do lack some fantasy in the naming of the product, as ODiN vs. ODIN (both being "portable" and "projectors") may create some confusion :dubbio: (possibly a YABBC, Yet Another Billy Bob Case ;))
