IOGEAR takes computer mice to a new level with the Phaser ($59.99), the first PS/2 handheld radio mouse with a built-in laser pointer. The Phaser is among the first of a new generation of mice that enables educators to highlight material or direct students to specific locations with its light beam. The wireless mouse can be controlled up to 50' away from the computer. Using high-band radio waves, the Phaser also provides accurate cursor movement. Its thumb-operated track ball and ergonomic contour make cursor movement easy and comfortable, while its second left-click button lets users trigger instead of click the mouse.
