I was wrong.
The Mini Bluetooth Keyboard with Touchpad and Laser Pointer is exactly what it sounds like: It is a laser pointer embedded in a cell phone-sized QWERTY keyboard with a built-in touchpad. That's right... it has a 72 key keyboard and a touchpad.
The whole contraption is Bluetooth enabled, which means you can use it to command a PowerPoint presentation, and even make corrections to typos on the fly, as you're standing at the podium. It's rated for about a week of battery life, and it recharges via USB. The cost? A surprisingly reasonable $45.
Unlike the OpenOffice mouse, I actually think this is a pretty smart gadget. Maybe fellow Business Hacker Rick will buy me one for Christmas. [via Gizmodo]
