A couple of practical pieces of tech that you can really make some use out of, plus your questions for our pals at Computer Renaissance of Latham are coming up
The computer mouse really hasn't evolved too much. It basically moves your cursor around the screen, right? Time to get that little baby multitasking like everything else these days:
Wouldn't it be great if your mouse could do something else too? Well now it does (although it comes at a price). It's the Iriscan Mouse. It allows you to scan both documents and photos .
"As you move the mouse, the images and text on the document will be stitched together in real time on your computer screen.
It costs $80, but then again, it might be worth it to have all that capability in something that normally just sits on your mousepad.
A GREAT EASTER APP FOR MOMS WITH PRE-SCHOOLERS
Your child drags and drops animated stickers onto these backgrounds and you mke these scenes for Easter. You cn create a virtual Easter Egg Hunt. It has chickens and lambs and rabbits (oh my) and there's a voice that tells your kid what the item is as they are dragging it. Fun sound effects. And you can share the creations too
And now for this week's question to our friends at Computer Renaissance
of Latham, your friendly tech experts. I would like to thank them here for their sponsorship!
