Genius Showing New Hybrid Peripherals at Computex

Genius said on Tuesday that it plans to showcase a new line of hybrid peripherals at Computex 2013 next month. This includes the Energy Mouse, a wireless mouse with a built-in 2400mAh lithium polymer battery that will recharge a mobile device, and a Speaker Mouse that doubles as a 2.1 speaker system adding more sound to a PC system or mobile device.

In addition to those two unique peripherals, Genius will also showcase the Cam Mouse (shown right), a mouse that becomes a camera with QR code scanning functions, instant upload and more. There's also the Traveler D6600, a wireless mouse that lets users switch mouse control between two different computers with a press of a button. Genius will also showcase the Transbar which is a portable Bluetooth 2.1 speaker system that doubles as a stand and works with all tablet sizes.

Also in the Computex booth Genius will reveal two new additions to its GX Gaming series of peripherals: Manticore, a professional gaming keyboard with a mechanical touch and feel (shown left), and Zabius, a gaming headset compatible with PC, Mac, PS3 and Xbox 360. Additional products will also be on hand including smartphone and tablet PC accessories, Bluetooth keyboards for Android and iOS, professional-grade graphic design tablets, audio devices, imaging devices and more.

"Genius has had a reputation for combining the functions of multiple peripherals into one sleek form factor. Recent innovations include the Ring Series: Ring Presenter, Ring Mouse 2 and Ring Pointer, which unite the functionality of a mouse and/or presenter into the form of a ring," the company said.

Earlier this month, Genius launched the Ring Pointer, a ring-styled presenter with built-in laser pointer for professional PowerPoint presentations. Prior to that, the company launched the X-G510, a six-button ambidextrous gaming mouse with unique aesthetic options like backlighting brightness and pulsation style. It also sports a dedicated DPI button to adjust sensitivity on the fly, a 1000 Hz polling rate and a 1 millisecond response time. Both products will likely make a Computex appearance as well.

We expect to learn more about the company's new products next week when they're finally revealed at Computex Taipei 2013 from June 4 to June 8.
