CeBIT 2009  Smart touch-scroll mouse for netbooks

Netbooks are small, handy and all the rage at CeBIT 2009. But there is a downside: Due to their small size, netbooks are unable to display documents and web pages fully on the screen. Now the new netbook mouse from Genius helps netbooks navigate better.

Instead of a scroll wheel, the smart ScrollToo T955 Laser and Navigator T835 Laser mice are equipped with an optical sensor for precision navigation in eight directions. "Stroke, don't scroll" is the Genius motto. A small stroke of the finger and the cursor moves vertically, horizontally or diagonally. This makes it easy to navigate websites and browse large documents up, down and across. There are two different scroll speeds. Designed with the businessman in mind, the T835 mouse also functions as presentation tool. At the touch of a button, the mouse's laser beam becomes a laser pointer.

CeBIT 2009 The biggest printout in the world - on your way to the car

15.5 trillion ink drops on 7,000 m² of normal office paper will add up to the world's largest printout - this is how PrintDreams is demonstrating the performance of its printers at CeBIT 2009.

The individual parts of the printout were printed with the Bluetooth PrintBrush mini-printer. With the user gradually guiding the mobile-phone-sized inkjet printer over the page, the handheld wizard can print text and graphics on A4-size sheets. Thanks to Random Movement Printing Technology (RMPT), the inkjet printer keeps its cool even if the user jerks his hand or suddenly changes direction. Because of its enormous size - and because, according to the manufacturer, the monster printout is best seen half a kilometer away - the printout is being exhibited at parking lot 6H, close to the ADAC Driving Safety Center in Hermann Fuller Strasse.

CeBIT 2009 DIY hotspot

In contrast to the United States, where virtually every street café offers WiFi internet access, the situation is still pretty dire in Germany. The answer is to create your own WLAN hotspot. Netgear presents a WiFi router at CeBIT 2009 with the cryptic name MBR624GU.

Thanks to the inbuilt UMTS module, every surfer can set up a wireless internet connection wherever there is UMTS coverage. Moreover, the car charger unit means users with a compatible 3G-USB modem can even stay online on the road. Of course, the router boasts standard security features, such as WPA2, WPA and WEP encryption, to keep unwanted guests out of the ad hoc network.

CeBIT 2009 Conserving fuel with your navigator

EcoNavigation is the name of the new software package that Garmin is launching to make its range of nüvi navigators genuine fuel savers. The company is demonstrating how this works at CeBIT 2009.

The fuel-conscious driver enters the car's consumption data and the current price of fuel in the car profile. The EcoNavigation uses this data as the basis for calculating the savings, which can be read out even before starting the journey. In addition to the conventional fastest time and shortest route calculations, the EcoNavigation offers the nüvi owner a new fuel-saving route option. In this case, the software works out the route that saves the most fuel. Other functions in EcoNavigation package: a consumption report that informs the driver about fuel consumption over a given period. A route report, on the other hand, provides info on distance traveled and consumption per route.

The new software also keeps the driver updated while on the road. If he feels in the mood the driver can activate the EcoChallenge feature. Based on an analysis of the driver's heavy or light-footed pedal technique and braking behavior as well as the actual car speed the display shows how well the driver is doing in the fuel-saving stakes.

EcoNavigation is available for free download from the beginning of March for all nüvi 2x5 series and nüvi 7x5 series navigators. All new nüvi navigators come with the new package on board.

CeBIT 2009  It's a kind of "Magic": Vodafone presents its Google G2 mobile phone

Android is slowly coming up to speed: following T-Mobile's adoption of the new Google mobile phone operating system in its G1 cellular phone, now Vodafone is launching the follow-up model - the G2 Magic - on the market in time for CeBIT 2009.

Like its predecessor it uses the Android operating system - designed for a mobile phone alliance of some 40 companies around the world. Taiwan-based HTC is the manufacturer. The G2 Magic is operated using the 3.2 inch touchscreen and a navigation wheel. The sliding keyboard has been dropped to make the unit slimmer and lighter. The cellular phone features a 3.2 megapixel camera and direct access to Google services, such as e-mail, maps and search engine, on the menu.

CeBIT 2009 Fresh ideas daily for user-friendly products and services

The Hasso Plattner Institutes in Germany and USA have set up a novel innovations lab at CeBIT 2009 under the motto "Giving IT a more human touch". This extraordinary powerhouse for new ideas is designed to generate novel, purpose-oriented solutions on a daily basis in response to the challenges posed by Webciety, IT security, green IT, eLearning, eGovernment and eHealth. The real showstopper here: visitors are invited to take part and learn how fresh new ideas for user-friendly products and services are developed.

Webciety is the topic on the first day of the show. Scientists and students seek answers to the question "How can we reduce the stress on professionals in the 'always-on' age?" IT security is the theme for the following day, formulated in the question "How can we help employees at the workplace maintain the privacy of their own data?"

On Thursday 5 March the focus of attention is on green information technology and generating ways to animate private households to use environmental-friendly IT solutions. How to integrate teenagers' cellular phones and other mobile hardware to become learning tools in the classroom is one of the challenges being confronted at Friday's session on eLearning.

On Saturday the creative scientists will be tackling the subject of eGovernment and finding out how IT can help citizens in their dealings with bureaucracy. For the flourishing finale on Sunday, the spotlight is on eHealth and how computer games can help make us healthier and fitter.

CeBIT is looking for the No. 1 gamer: E-athletes compete for 750,000 euros

They are flying in from Los Angeles, Tokyo and New York to converge and play at CeBIT 2009. This year gamers from some 20 countries are congregating at the "Intel Extreme Masters", the Olympic Games event for eSports aficionados. The lure is 750,000 euros in prize money.

Around 100 gamers will be competing in the "Counterstrike 1.6" and "World of Warcraft" disciplines. Only the top-tier gamers in the Electronic Sports League (ESL) who have qualified in competitions held on three continents are entitled to play in the grand finale. Super gamers will be turning Hall 22 to a major eSports arena. From 3 to 8 March the top guns from the global gamer scene will be battling it out.

CeBIT 2009 Smart car tows truck with invisible tow bar

Visitors may well rub their eyes if they catch the demonstration of the latest development from Götting KG being shown at CeBIT 2009: a small Smart driving around the open-air area being pursued by a huge truck. A driverless truck! But onlookers need not worry. The demonstration they are witnessing is not a scene from a horror movie, but rather an automatic convoy.

This innovative convoy works as follows: just like driverless concept cars the vehicles in the convoy are fitted with numerous sensors. However, obstacle detectors are redundant because the driver in the car heading the convoy leads the way. Not being tied to fixed routes gives the convoy added flexibility.

CeBIT 2009 A girl's dream in pink: Mice, webcams, keyboards for real girlies

Pink mice, purple webcams and rose-tinted keyboards - a real color bonanza for your desktop. Hama presents PC accessories for real girlies at CeBIT 2009.

The product series which would make Barbie's cheeks blush is called "Emerging". Because, in addition to the color splash, all products are decorated with playful flower ornaments to match. These temptress tones however adorn technical highlights as well: the mouse, for example, has a resolution of 800 dpi and boasts a scroll wheel with key function. The webcam not only works with popular chat programs, but can either be clamped to the flat screen monitor or stood alone on the table. On the keyboard, the x-structure design of the keys ensures a super soft keystroke.

CeBIT 2009 Love, peace & happiness

Like all other exhibitors at CeBIT 2009 G Data wants to stimulate interest in its new products. Yet the German antivirus specialist also has a second agenda: to raise the awareness of visitors at the fair to the unacceptable living conditions of children in the "Third World". To this end G DATA is hosting a big benefit event on Saturday for the child advocacy group Plan International Deutschland e.V.

All visitors to CeBIT 2009 are invited - the only conditions: have a good time and loosen the purse strings. To raise even more money for this good cause G Data is sponsoring a killer live act: the eccentric performer Guildo Horn will be wowing the crowd after 6 p.m.
