Yesterday, we wrote about Samsung's new wearable devices Gear 2 and Gear 2 Neo that connect to make phone calls, play music or take photos. However, Gear Fit, which Samsung has also introduced at MWC 2014 (Mobile World Congress 2014), doesn't have any functions like that.

Sanwa Supply today released the wrist and shoulder-friendly ergonomic mouse 400-MA057 series.

Usually, big-size ergonomic mouse models dominate the market, but this new product from Sanwa Supply is slightly smaller than the usual size so that it can fit well for female or children's hands.

It features an optical sensor, right and left click button, and scroll button.

Akihabaranews.com - Thanko Niko-Ichi-Gasa Umbrella

It looks like 2 umbrellas, but it's just a single strong umbrella!

A huge umbrella, Niko-Ichi-Gasa, that looks like 2 umbrellas got attached was released by Thanko. It's obviously big so that it will be easy to use together with somebody else and you can avoid the situation where either of you gets soaked.

Also, because it features a design that covers the sides, you will be protected from diagonally wind-blown rain.
