Features

Let us now discuss the features of this clever little tool. The Ring Mouse uses 2.4 GHz wireless to help prevent interference and to improve battery life with lower power consumption. The touchpad serves two functions since it has an OptoWheel 1000 dpi optical sensor to detect thumb motion and also acts as the left-click when depressed. Additionally, the mouse comes with a small bit of software that will actually make using it more rewarding. The included ioMedia Software provides two additional modes of use for the Ring Mouse. Those modes are Presentation Mode and Media Center Mode. Just by plugging in the wireless adapter and turning the mouse on you will start with the default Mouse Mode.
The Ring Mouse is rechargeable and comes with a retractable USB power adapter that plugs into any USB 2.0 port.
I want to take a moment to talk about the unique Pico Receiver. This little USB device has a design I have never seen before. The receiver is not all metal nor is it all plastic. It is a composite construction. I do not know if this was done for a nice aesthetic or if there is some functionality behind the decision, but it was unique enough for me to notice and comment on the peculiar design.

Before I forget I also wanted to mention that it can be hard to keep track of a mini-disc, a ring mouse, a receiver, and a power adapter. To combat this Genius included a carrying case with foam inserts for the products that make taking this device and its peripherals without misplacing them many times more realistic.
