Today we are looking at a world first from Gigabyte, the new Aivia Xenon Dual mode TouchPad Mouse. This device can double up as an ordinary mouse and a fully fledged touchpad, similar to a laptop model. Is this hybrid mouse actually practical, or just a cool talking point with little real world usability?
As we will show you today, this is certainly an unusual product and Gigabyte deserve some credit for bringing it to market. It can act as an ordinary wireless mouse, complete with 1,000 dpi optical sensor. This is certainly not going to get the hardcore gamers excited, however it would be fair to say that the Aivia Xenon is targeting a wider mainstream userbase.
At the press of a button the Aivia Xenon will morph (literally, not physically) into a mobile trackpad and this is obviously the main talking point. Gigabyte also supply ‘Aivia Painter software’ to allow the user to mark any document. Ideal for presentations with small audiences.
