Has Asus ruined its nice idea?

Mar 10, 2008

A very interesting idea was proposed by Asus. A useful device was worked out. But it has one disadvantage that makes it almost impossible to use. Let's find out why.

The elaboration is the following: the company thought that it would be nice to combine portable wireless mouse with flash card. But they have made a huge mistake - the form of the mouse is not comfortable at all, it looks like a memory stick.

One end of the gadget is held by a magnet. You separate the small part and plug it into your laptop's USB drive. In order to charge the device you have to snap it back together while the transmitter is still connected.

Actually, the idea is great. But who will have the desire to use such uncomfortable mouse? On the one hand, it is narrow, like a lipstick. But on the other hand it doesn't fit your hand at all.

It was one point of view. But there is also another opinion. If the shape of the device looked like a usual mouse, it would be too bulky and took much place while plugged into your laptop. But let's remind that the mice for notebooks are often smaller and more compact than usual mice. That's why Asus tried to make mouse for a laptop prettier and more functional.

So, if the device is re-designed and the form is changed a little, made smoother, for example, then a lot of people will like to have it. The form of the mouse has almost ruined a nice idea.
