Australian engineers at Compaq today said they had come up with an idea that solves the problem of prolonging your laptop battery life.
According to a statement released today, 1 April, Compaq has spent five years of research and $120 million on the issue before project leader, Dr Annette Curton, noticed her watch was losing time.
Head of artificial intelligence, Professor Sean Lam, showed her his new autowind kinetic watch and the idea for the Compaq Dynamouse was born.
The team said the next step was to find a way to harness the mouse ball's rotational kinetic energy. They set themselves a seemingly impossible task - to make the world's first Super Conductor Dynamo, small enough to fit inside a mouse casing.
After weeks of work, the Dynamouse was born. A mere 45 seconds of Dynamouse motion will give your battery five minutes of extra life.
Compaq said the Y2K ready Dynamouse comes in a range of exciting new colours including Compaq red and British racing green. Racing stripes are available, but no commitment was made to when the fibre optic cable version would be available.
Customers wishing to purchase a Dynamouse should call Compaq direct and ask for Miss A Fool.
