Kiwis win CES innovation award

10 Jan 2011

The Swiftpoint Mouse (pictured) has won an Innovations Award from the CES Design and Engineering Programme in the Computer Peripherals category.

Swiftpoint is a Christchurch-based technology company that was renamed Swiftpoint, from Simtrix, in 2009 to reflect the company’s focus on the Swiftpoint Mouse.

The firm describes the product as a rechargeable, optical, wireless mouse with a unique pen / pincer grip design that, due to its compact size, can be operated comfortably on the palm-rest of a laptop.

Back in November the company also picked up a “Best of What’s New 2010” award from Popular Science magazine for the mouse.

Here’s the Swiftpoint Mouse in action. It costs $119 if you’re interested.
