• Leaf self powered wireless mouse uses kinetic energy to juice up

  • leaf_mouse.jpgComputer peripherals have long since been destined to go green sooner or later. The day’s here, starting from the mouse. The conventional two-buttoned pointer device could soon turn obsolete with designs like the Leaf Wireless Mouse showing up. Designed by Lu Hairong and Zhang Xuehui, the Leaf is a self-powered mouse that converts the kinetic energy generated from its movement into usable electricity that in turn powers this device. Also, this pretty much makes battery-powered wireless mouse devices seem silly, given that the conventional device requires a fresh set of batteries every now and then.
