Woohoo, just bought a white one (after fighting with myself for three hours almost). I went with what this video showed and the numbers do look easier to read on white. Even though I hardly look at my buttons. I take a lot of pictures from my desk and I just wanted to like... make my calcumouse noticeable.

I kind of had to look the other way when I clicked the "confirm order" button though.

Special thanks to jwsmed and farmerdan (you two look alike) for helping me out.

LIES. This mouse will not compliment the contours of your hand; it will only complement them.

From reviews on Amazon it looks like the 1 weakness of this cool device is that the bluetooth may or may not work.

I'd be concerned about "accidental math," too. I would prefer this to be USB (so I could use it on any computer in the house); not sure if my daughter's laptop has Bluetooth or not. My spouse has a calculator built into one end of his mouse pad (and separate from the mousing surface, so no "accidental math"); I tend to either grab a cheap calculator from the kitchen "junk drawer" or use an onscreen calculator.

You are getting this from Canon's website it could be a little biased. Other websites that offer a history don't really have any clear cut first. Chances are simultaneously several companies were coming out with similar devices arounf the same time, although Canon was definitely one of them.

wouldn't you continually mash the calculator buttons with the bottom of your hand?

After reading the description, I am reminded as to why I enjoy shopping here so much. The woot! staff does not insult our intelligence when offering very (very very very) niche products.

That said, I'm in for none, as I like using my calculator coffee mug instead.

I may just have to jump on this. As a teacher with a laptop, I have to choose to either enter grades with the stupid number keys along the top of the keyboard or attach a keyboard. This may be the answer to my prayers! Oh, and its a calculator too!

I mouse-left leaving the 10-key on the keyboard for my right hand. Although I can use a calculator with my left, my right hand isn't busy...

So, could this be used as just a blue tooth keypad while using another mouse for mousing? Maybe it would be good for just keyboard shortcuts--I've been missing the extended keyboard on my mac.

I'm with you, it doesn't look comfortable to use at all. I guess someone out there would want it solely for the novelty aspects of it's design, but I can hardly say it's even worth what they're asking.

Does the calculator pass-through data to your computer (i.e. excel?). If it's only computing in the sandbox (on the mouse only) it's a very confusing product. If it passes the data entry to your computer, I'm in (need a numpad on my laptop).

According to the specs, it has two modes. Keypad mode is pass through, calculator mode is not.

You know, sometimes an idea is so cool and also so obvious that you slap your head and think "Why didn't I come up with that!"

This is not one of those times.

I mean seriously? Maybe they could add a tiny screen to it so you can surf the web... while you surf the web! I'M A GENIUS!

On the fence...I have been wanting a Bluetooth mouse for my MBP, but I was thinking of a tiny travel size one. But I hate the lack of a number pad too. This would seem to solve both problems.

On the connectivity issue: does anyone know if that is more prone to happen with Macs vs. PCs? Or maybe it's just a mouse battery issue?

I was thinking the same thing.
Also, USB has power so why does it need a battery. They should've designed it to just draw power from the USB.

EDIT: I just noticed that it's wireless so my above comment is stupid.

these look neat. in for 2 as stocking stuffer type gifts. especially at this price. we have an electrical engineer in the family who works from home doing whatever he does. i figure numbers are involved, though. should get some good use out of this

5 mins into my google search, I realized the design work to fabricate a high-temperature calculator would probably not result in a coffee-calculator…

So any chance this would work with an iPad? I saw one comment about using with a Galaxy Tab. I've Googled it but can't find any reference other than using with PC or MAC. If bluetooth keyboards work, which they obviously do, why wouldn't this?

I have not had problems with mine. As I stated earlier, it can be slow to reconnect after going to sleep. I have also been able to use a usb mouse at the same time. That is sometimes handy while working at the desk with a regular monitor. I can take this mouse and/or my BT keyboard over to the couch to watch netflix or my own media files on the HDTV hooked to the mac-mini over mini-dp port with HDMI adapter.

Punch numbers on mousse keypad, hit enter button on mouse keypad and they are in your spreadsheet cell or document. You can also perform a calculation then press the send key on the mouse to get the result into your spreadsheet or document.

Just went to Fry's (Renton, WA) to see if they had it, and they have probably over 50 of each color. They are selling them for $7.99 each.

I hate wireless mice with dongles. They are either too small, and get lost easily, or too big and stick way out the side of the computer.

Best to get bluetooth, and fix connection issues (in Windows), by unchecking "allow this computer to turn off this device to save power" in the device manager. No dongles, just turn it on and go.

I can't seem to find the link, but a few days ago, woot was selling a motorola bluetooth mouse for $4.99. I used a coupon on it, and found that it fits my hand nicely, and serves it's purpose as a two button mouse with a wheel. I'm sure they will come around again soon.
