Sometimes a computer user only has one hand that they can work with be it due to standing up or some sort of physical limitation. A new project has landed on Kickstarter that is very interesting called Keyglove Wearable Input Device. The glove combines the functions of a mouse and a keyboard.
If you have been reading SlashGear for a long time you might recall back in 2007 when we first mentioned the i.Tech Virtual Keyboard.

If you are a serious user of Facebook that spend lots of time uploading photos and other content to your social network page on Facebook a new keyboard just for you has surfaced.

Razer has been unveiling lots of special edition mice and keyboards over the last few months.

Logitech has outed its latest wireless mouse, the Logitech Couch Mouse M515, and as the name suggests it's intended for the living room.

It also has easy-glide pads for swift navigation on fabric.
For some, Microsoft's keynote, where CEO Steve Ballmer (and others) takes the stage and talks about what's to come from the Redmond-based company is the kick-off for the Consumer Electronics Show. This year, Microsoft took some time to talk about their recently released motion-controlled peripheral, Kinect, and the features that will be added into the accessory soon. For those who believe that Kinect's usage through the Xbox 360's system isn't as in-depth as they'd like, Microsoft is happy to add functionality to two main features, along with adding an entirely new way to interact with your friends on Xbox LIVE.
While it may look similar, the Touch Mouse isn't the same thing as the previously released Arc Touch Mouse from Microsoft. This time around, the Touch Mouse is meant to look more like a traditional mouse peripheral, but the distinction between a "normal" mouse and this one is pretty clear right off the top: there's a "matrix of capacitive touch-sensing electrodes" right on the top, allowing for several different multitouch gestures.
