Z-nano mouse – the world's smallest/stupidist pointer

This is the world’s smallest mouse. I’m not sure why anyone would want it unless they were some super-intelligent child baby or just a person with tiny, tiny hands but what with biology the way it is and Jeremy Beadle being dead, I don’t think there’s going to be much of a market.

The Z-Nano Mouse is about the size of the USB head that plugs into it but not so diddy that they leave you without the space for putting in a small photograph of yourself or a loved one. I don’t know about you but that’s always a big worry for me when I buy a mouse.

It’s available for $60 but I’m not going to tell you where because I don’t want you to waste your cash.

  • Looks like this mouse got a pretty good review in Tech Reviewer…. I don’t mind trying out one myself.

    After reviewing so many different computer mice, I can safely say that the best mouse is the one that fits your needs and your palm best.

    Is a top of the range gaming mouse, with 5600 dpi sensitivity necessary be the best mouse for you? I personally do not think so.

    Setting it to 5600dpi makes it almost un-useable, even for the most experienced gamers. Most typically set it to around 1600dpi to get better control. The specs may look impressive and make the mouse mor expensive, but it actually has little practical value to the user.

    A good desktop Logitec or Microsoft mouse usually have great ergonomics and design, but for those with relatively smaller hands, a smaller & lighter mouse that fits your palm well may be a better choice.

    For travellers and mobile notebook users, having a LASER mouse is important, as you may need to work on different surfaces when you travel. The normal optical mouse usually works well on a black surface, but it usually does not work properly on a white or shiny surface. Also,it would be RIDICULOUS to lug a huge Logitec desktop mouse on your travels with your Ultra-mini notebook(like the Sony Viao P or Asus EEE PC). A small notebook mouse, with LASER tracking, is the way to go.

    I have reviewed many notebook mice before. The Rotino Sigma mouse is small and fits nicely into my pocket,and it used to be the smallest mouse around. However it has since been superceded with this Z-Nano mouse, which is about a third its size. Z-Nano is the current Guinness World Record holder for the World’s Smallest optical mouse. We are actually witnessing miniaturization at its best with this amazingly small gadget.

    Though incredibly small and light, it packs a real punch with features that even its bigger cousin mice sorely lacks. It is a laser mouse (1600dpi) with selectable dpi (like a gaming mouse). With the shift of the clicks to single finger front-and-back clicking, it effectively halved the size the mouse and eliminates the problem of having a small and frustrating Right button. It even comes with a unique auto-scroll feature for reading (hardware controlled), and soft touches like a small pointer to trace the outline of images. Using a rare-earth magnet to manage its medical-grade wire elimates the problem of the unreliable thin wire and the retractable mechanism that many small notebook mice possess.

    It may LOOK uncomfortable and impractical to use because of its small size, but it is actually better than a lot of the notebook mice I have used. Since it is so small, the idea is NOT to grip the mouse, but to rest your whole palm on the table and simply slide it across the surface. No gripping, no wrist pain!

    Surprisingly, I have little problems switching to the new interface and one-finger clicking. I suggest that if one of my finger is tired (which I did not experience after an hour of using), I can easily switched it over to the next finger 😉

    In summary, I find this Z-Nano extremely handy and serves very well as a travelling mouse. Although small for normal deskop use, this Z-Nano represents a great leap in mobility for the notebook users.

    Definitely my choice for all business travellers and small notebook users.

  • Got this Z-Nano mouse at a special discounted price when I bought my MacBook Air.

    It is without doubt the smallest (think it recently set the Guinness World Record), but it is nowhere near the stupidest 😉

    In fact, it has some clever features which I particularly liked. I don’t slot any photo into the slot though it is available, but I can why it is useful as personalized gifts for special or corporate events. I specially liked the simple yet effective way to keep wires using the magnet. There is also a neat protrusion at the side for me to trace the outline of images. Most of all, I like its portability, being so compact and able to work on different surfaces.

    Personally, I’d rate it as one of the better travelling mice around! A sure winner for notebook users.

  • I saw the video and I think that can actually be quite usable. I have used some small mice with an extremely small RIGHT button click. Even then, I got used to them after a while.

    With the Front and Back clicking and getting rid of the Right button, it solves the problem of having tiny buttons, and essentially make the mouse HALF as small. Rocking the mouse backwards should be relatively easier.

    Think it will work great with the HP mini notebook that I just bought. Can’t wait to try it out.
