For Sale - Interlink Durapoint Rugged Mouse - £19

Taking a break from the normal offers on used items of; sound equipment, rigging hardware, electronic components and projector lamps we move onto I.T. equipment with this Interlink Durapoint mouse.

Mouse being used here in the loosest of meanings, the cursor is moved by a raised rubber button, much like a jumbo version of the TrackPoint button found on Leonovo ThinkPads and some of the classic Toshiba business laptops.

Framed in durable stainless steel, with a weighted base, it is the HumVee of the mouse World. It has a captive cable with an old skool 9 way D-type Serial connection, but comes with a handly ps/2 adapter. A Belkin USB adapter will also be supplied as part of the package, this will work with most modern equipment, normally no drivers are required.

It is the perfect item if you want to create a kiosk computer for use in exhibitions, or any other situation where the equipment is accessible to the public in an unsupervised situation. It could also could be a useful way to integrate computers in a chemically aggressive environment, such as garages and workshops. Perfect, in fact, for anyone needing a bullet proof mouse for their CAM setup in a dusty or oily environment. That said, it would be just as good for playing "Angry Birds" in the den or man cave.

Here's what Interlink say about the Durapoint Rugged mouse.
THE TOUGHEST MOUSE IN THE WORLD! Drive a truck over it. Throw it off a building. Or just use it 24/7 in your process control operations or on your manufacturing floor. DuraPoint dominates. It has no moving parts (nothing to clog up or break) and is maintenance-free. It's also environmentally sealed, waterproof and impervious to atmospheric contaminants, vibration, sound waves and physical shock.
