Kiwis win CES innovation award

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.
