Couldn't make it to the 2006 International Consumer
Electronics Show in Las Vegas? That's okay - I put on my
running shoes and toured it to find the top five office
items you won't be able to live without in 2006.
With more than 2,500 exhibitors from 100 countries to
review, it soon became obvious that a lot of them were
simply putting a new twist on an old idea and trying to
pass it off as a cool new "must have" for this year. I
looked past the glitz and glamour right into the heart
of the matter: If a product didn't make your job at

3. Wow Pen
Maybe you've seen those pen
devices that act as optical mice. I had, and

available for lefties, the Wow-Pen can be
used on any flat surface and is designed for
control by the index and middle fingers. The
index finger runs the right and left mouse
button, while the middle finger controls the
scrolling wheel. The design means that you
are more prone to grasping the device with
your fingers than your hand and arm, which
reduces fatigue and helps eliminate carpal
When you aren't using it, the
device simply stands by itself wherever you
leave it. A nice bonus to this product is
optional presentation and handwriting
software, which allows you to handwrite on a
variety of applications.
The Wow-Pen Traveler works in
2.4 GHZ environments up to 50 meters and
both versions are silver nano embedded,
which offers the latest in anti-bacterial
properties. Both items are expected to be
available soon in a variety of colors
through the company's Web site, WowPen, for
between $40-$75 USD.
