Logitech keeps doing a lot of cool things with its webcams and their Unifying Receiver and whatnot. The latest trick up their sleeve is an upgrade to the G25 Racing Wheel, with the G27. This one has a shift-indicator telling you when to go up or down a gear, and six programmable buttons (three on each side of the wheel.) It is good for PS3, PS2, and Windows games. You can pick one up for $300, and they’re available for pre-order on Amazon.

Considering that the number of repeated stress injury cases in the United States are caused by the use of a computer mouse, it is nice to see companies make hands-free mice. This is the SmartNav 4 EG infared mouse controller works: all you need to do is put the device atop of your monitor, and it will track a reflective spot on the user’s glasses, hat, or forehead. So how do you click the mouse? With a keyboard key, the voice, or a USB foot and hand switch. You should be able to get it for about $399.

I swear, Logitech must have some department that puts out cool technology daily, as they’ve just released two mice that can literally work on glass, something that has always seemed to evade us. Both the Performance Mouse MX ($100) and the Anywhere Mouse MX ($80) use Darkfield Laser Tracking Technology to accomplish this feat, and they’re both available now. You can get the Logitech Performance Mouse MX and the Logitech Anywhere Mouse MX on Amazon.

Canon has put out a lot of great printers, and the SELPHY ES40 looks like a one-of-a-kind with its “voice-guidance” system. Canon has been pretty quiet on this, which is surprising, since this is a feature you’d think they’d want to tout. What we do know is that it has a 3.5-inch LCD display for previewing your images, and a scrollwheel to navigate through the interface. It should retail for $149.99 when it is released, which coincidentally, they haven’t given any information on release date either.
Until then, keep talking to your printer as you normally do. Maybe Canon will make a printer that will talk back to you. Not looking forward to that.

I realize that many shoot their own version of EdTV or The Truman Show with their webcams every day, what with this whole YouTube thing we keep hearing about. If that is you, then you may be interested in Microsoft’s LifeCam Cinema, which records in 720p HD at 30 frames per second. The LifeCam Cinema also touts autofocus, 4x digital zoom, noise-canceling microphone, and ClearFrame for “smoother video” (whatever that is.) It will support Windows 7, and will be available for $80 on September 9th.

It’s good to know that major electronics makers have realized that it makes more sense to “go green” than to avoid it. BenQ, for example, has recently created two new V Series monitors that are meant to be eco-friendly. The 24-inch V2400 Eco and 21.5-inch V2200 Eco have dynamic contrast ratios of 5,000,000:1, and are LED-backlit 1080p panels. The monitors are made from 28 percent recycled plastic. They also reduce power by 30 percent in eco mode, and 36 percent overall. These displays are available in China in a week, but we expect them to arrive stateside soon enough.
