Meggen-Lucerne, Switzerland, July 13, 2006 --(PR.com
)-- Litrax GmbH today announces the introduction of the world’s first mini-tracking ball using their patented VCSEL (vertical cavity surface emitting laser). This unique device offers extraordinary precision, the smoothest cursor movements and the best tracking available in a self contained mini-package that can be used in hundred’s of applications including small electronic devices that require a lot of scrolling to obtain key information such as MP3 players, IPOD-type devices, mobile phones, notebooks, sub-notebooks, PDA and many others. The mini-laser tracking ball will allow users to navigate quicker and to play games easier and more efficiently with navigation speeds of up to 50 inches/second. One finger use reduces the stress and fatigue in using multiple tiny buttons. It will allow manufactures more room to include additional features and more reactive games in their products.
"By incorporating our VCSEL technology with a resolution of up to 1600dpi in a mini-tracking ball system we are able to ensure that the user achieves a precise movement with the least amount of one finger motion. These mini-tracking balls are engineered to improve the user productivity, while incorporating the latest advantages in laser technology. Mobile phones will now become as powerful as gaming PCs when equipped with our Laser Ball Technology, be it as a integrated part or additional Bluetooth device," said Mr. Felix Stutz, President of Litrax.
Laser usage is the next technology to replace LED (light emitting diode) technology in sensors, cameras, night vision goggles, computer mice and other optical products.
Litrax laser bundles are FCC Part 15 compliant and Non-Harming Laser according to IEC 60825-1 laser safety standard as Class 1.
