In Brief

Kickstarter project Mauz hopes to change the way users browse on their laptop.

Tech company Spicebox has created Mauz, which is a small device with a big potential. By plugging it into your iPhone, it’s able to turn it into a fully functional computer mouse. The wireless connector easily plugs into the mobile phone and works alongside the free downloadable app.

The device allows you to control the computer in a variety of ways. For example, it works like a standard mouse where you can left or right click, and move the scroll wheel up and down to browse pages.  In addition to this, it supports gesture-based controls, similar to a Nintendo Wii remote, and can also detect motions using the phone’s camera, which is like the Xbox Kinect sensor.
