CES: Exercise your thumb with the Genius Ring Mouse

The Genius Ring Mouse lets you scroll around with just your thumb!

LAS VEGAS--While much of the focus on pointing devices went to Microsoft this year for its Touch Mouse , the less profiled accessory company Genius is also here at the show unveiling its own unique mousing solution: the Ring Mouse.

As the name implies, the ring mouse slips right onto your finger. It features a wireless 2.4GHz receiver inside. Using just your thumb, you can control slideshows, PowerPoint slides, and more using two small buttons that act as the left and right clickers on a traditional mouse. For the actual mousing, you simply use the small optical trackpad on top of the ring.

No word yet on pricing or availability.
