DJ Mouse The Must Have Mouse for DJs

[07/04/10] 

It seems almost crazy that the computer mouse, easily one of the most fundamental pieces of technology that we use every day, is younger than most of us.

First shipped commercially with the 8010 Star Information System by Xerox (that’s right, the copier guys), it wasn’t until the mouse – originally invented by Stanford Research Institute’s Douglas Engelbart in 1968 – came standard with the Apple Macintosh in 1984, that we truly came to grips with this weird little device. And look at us now; we’re naked at the PC without a mouse - Cher without Sunny, Ernie without Bert, porn without a sound track of 1970s interpretive clarinet.

The mouse’s latest incarnation will keep music fans spinning. The DJ Mouse, from Hong Kong’s DJ Tech Professional (part of First Audio) is the world’s first USB-powered heavy weight optical mouse prepped for DJ duties. It features a multi-function jog wheel, with an illuminated blue ring, an aluminium feel and a mini-jog wheel for fading and scratching. The mouse is designed for real time mixing and scratching on MP3s and has six effects controlled by X and Y pads. Drag songs directly onto your play list, rewind and fast forward effects like a pro and then lock in the sync for perfect beat transitions.
