From VooDoo’s press release:
VoodooPC, a world leader in the design and manufacturing of high-performance personal computer systems, today announced the launch of the world’s first powered mousepad.
The Voodoo ATOM Speedpad is a brushed aluminum mousepad that also happens to extend the battery life of select models of Voodoo ENVY notebooks by over 2.5 times. By simply plugging a wire between the mousepad and your notebook the Voodoo ATOM Speedpad is a power users dream come true â€“ you can use your Voodoo ENVY notebook for up to 10 hours on a single charge.
â€œThere are multiple ways to use itâ€ says J. Desmond Brown, Media Designer, VoodooPC â€œThe ATOM Speedpad can be left in your notebook bag, and you can run a wire from the bag to your notebook if you are on a plane, or if you are stationed at a desk you can use it as your mousepad. It’s fully compatible with all optical mice, and being aluminum, the surface will last for years.â€
â€œI spend a fair amount of time traveling, and I was fed up of losing power on long haul flights, especially while in the middle of a movie.â€ says Rahul Sood, President & CTO of VoodooPC â€œWe designed the ATOM Speedpad for gamers and for people looking to extend their entertainment hours on long flights.â€
The Voodoo ATOM Speedpad was developed for the ENVY m:355, and ENVY m:460 notebooks, future options for other notebooks are currently being evaluated.
