    Poof! After Wireless, the Computer Mouse Turns Invisible


    In a magic trick that only geeks can pull off, researchers at MIT have found a method to let users click and scroll exactly the same way they would with a computer mouse, without the device actually being there.

    Cup your palm, move it around on a table and a cursor on the screen hovers. Tap on the table like you would click a real mouse, and the computer responds. Itís one step beyond cordless. Itís an invisible mouse.

    I would like to tap my fingers and make some things disappear - now that would be great fun.

    Is this actually genuine? Im guessing not, would be pretty cool if it was though

    Thats really cool, but I can't see it replacing the normal mice at all. Just a little to awkward to use.
