Introduction

Although the computer mouse was revolutionary when it was introduced back in the 1960s, there are times when it simply cannot perform today’s computer tasks. Drawing tablets and pens have been the answer for detailed computer work, but they are expensive. So when the folks at Genius sent us an inexpensive Pen Mouse that doesn’t require a tablet, we were happy to take a look.   

The Genius Pen Mouse comes encased in a plastic box with a colorful red and white insert, as shown in Figure 1. Although some plastic boxes are difficult to open, this one opens at the top and slide off easily, as shown in Figure 2.

Inside the box you find the pen itself, a small USB receiver for the wireless functionality, a small, thin mouse pad, a clip, two pen tips, a mini-CD with software, a black travel case, and a small User’s Manual, as shown in Figure 3.  One AAA battery is also included.
