The idea of turning a soft ball into a computer mouse could have only come from a Japanese mind. Some geeks at the Entertainment Computing Laboratory, Tsukuba University, Japan designed a motion-sensing soft ball called Puyocon. When you squeeze it, throw it or roll, then you’re mousing your computer. Puyocon is embedded with 14 pressure sensors and a three-way acceleration sensor and uses Bluetooth connectivity. It feels as if you’re operating a squishy Wiimote.
