The 6 Best Wireless Mice for 2022

Our pick

Logitech M720 Triathlon

The Triathlon is comfortable for a wide range of hand sizes, and it has six programmable buttons and long battery life.

Buying Options

*At the time of publishing, the price was $30.

Connection type: Bluetooth and wireless USB dongle

The Logitech M720 Triathlon can pair with, and quickly switch between, three devices via Bluetooth, or you can connect it via the included USB dongle. It also has six buttons that you can customize using Logitech’s Options software and a scroll wheel that toggles between ratcheted and smooth scrolling. And its single AA battery should last for two years, according to Logitech. But the Triathlon is contoured for right-handed mouse users—so it’s not ideal for lefties—and it doesn’t work on glass or mirrored surfaces.

How to troubleshoot your computer peripherals

No matter how well you look after your computer, something is going to eventually go wrong. And the issue won’t always be the machine itself, but maybe something you’ve plugged into it.

Peripherals (mice, keyboards, gamepads, webcams, and printers) can sometimes be a pain—they might either stop working or cause problems with the hardware and the software on your computer.

But before you make a (potentially expensive) call to a tech support professional, try troubleshooting your gadget problem yourself. There are certain steps that can be helpful in all scenarios, and that may well get your hardware working properly again.

Do some testing

Before you troubleshoot any tech problem, you need to know exactly where the problem is. The best way to do this is to test your peripheral in another computer. Don’t skip this step—even if that means you have to go round to a friend or relative’s house

New computer mouse makes it possible for paraplegics to train their breathing

Why we write about this topic:

This research project can significantly improve the lives and health of people with significant mobility impairments.

One of the most underestimated side effects of high paraplegia is breathing difficulties. This is due to the paralysis of important respiratory muscles. This worsens coughing and secretion defense, which can lead to complications such as pneumonia. More than that, respiratory problems are among the leading causes of death. It has been scientifically proven that regular respiratory training can prevent this, which is why sufferers should undergo ongoing respiratory training, explains graduate engineer Michael Gstöttenbauer from the Austrian research facility LIFEtool in Linz. The non-profit company specializes in assistive technologies, particularly for people with severe mobility impairments.

Access to regular breathing training

Now the research facility wants to enable those affected to do breathing training independently of others and on their own at home. This is because training

Mouse and human brain cells in a lab dish learn to play video game Pong : Shots

A dish of living brain cells has learned to play the 1970s arcade game Pong.

About 800,000 cells linked to a computer gradually learned to sense the position of the game’s electronic ball and control a virtual paddle, a team reports in the journal Neuron.

The novel achievement is part of an effort to understand how the brain learns, and how to make computers more intelligent.

“We’ve made huge strides with silicon computing, but they’re still rigid and inflexible,” says Brett Kagan, an author of the study and chief scientific officer at Cortical Labs in Melbourne, Australia. “That’s something we don’t see with biology.”

For example, both computers and people can learn to make a cup of tea, Kagan says. But people are able to generalize what they’ve learned in a way a computer can’t.

“You might have never been to someone else’s house, but with a bit of

What to Look for in a Mouse in 2022

Many people don’t think much about the mouse that they use. Maybe you got a hand-me-down mouse or something basic from a keyboard combo. You might even be using a laptop trackpad! But there are a variety of reasons that you might need an upgrade, even if some of these prices might feel like sticker shock.

If you’re a gamer, a mouse with a high dots per inch (DPI) and polling rate are important, but if you’re simply trying to work, a high DPI isn’t going to matter. It might even be a detriment! Additionally, if you work on a computer or otherwise spend long hours at one, an ergonomic mouse is important to prevent wrist and arm

Companies In The Computer Mouse Market Are Introducing The

LONDON, July 20, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — According to The Business Research Company’s research report on the mouse market, companies in the mouse market are introducing a biometric mouse to improve data security and privacy for the user. A biometric mouse permits only authorized users to control the mouse and access the computer. Protection is accomplished with an integrated fingerprint reader, either in the receiver or the mouse. This feature enhances security and adds convenience because the user can use his fingerprint rather than a password for a secure login. For example, Lenovo, a Hong Kong-based consumer electronics company, produced a Fingerprint Biometric USB Mouse, which offers advanced input functionality with an integrated fingerprint sensor for password-free authentication. It features 1600 DPI resolution with an optical sensor for precise tracking and an ambidextrous design for more fluid control and ergonomics. It delivers solid protection against intrusion with 256-bit encryption and
