Reg Kit Watch

Data Watch

UK-based Memix Direct has begun shipping its USB Memory Watch - a wristwatch with a built-in keychain-style USB solid state hard drive.

Available in grey and black, each watch contains 128MB of Flash memory. The watch's strap contain an integrated USB connector, and Memix bundles a USB extension cable for folk whose arms won't reach round the back of their computer.

Like regular keychain USB drives, the Memory Watch is compatible with all USB-supporting operating systems, including Mac OS 8.6 and up, Mac OS X, Linux 2.4, and Windows 98/ME/2k/XP. The drive can be used as an OS boot volume. The watch's face contains an LED data transfer activity light.

The watch itself contains a battery-powered Citizen mechanism, is shock proof, water resistant up to 30m and anti-static.

In the UK, the Memory Watch is priced at £69.99 (excluding VAT sales tax). For overseas buyers, the company says it will ship product to any location in the world.

Radio Mouse

MouseCaster is a PS/2 mouse with a built-in FM radio receiver. We're not quite sure how useful this is in these days of Internet radio, but for folk without a Net connection, or whose favourite stations don't stream their programming, it provides an alternative.

MouseCaster ships with Windows-only software that plays radio shows through the host PC's speakers and can save programming as MP3 and WAV files. It can also record shows on a timer - which allows it to double up as an alarm clock - and can store up to 28 stations' frequencies for quick access.

The MouseCaster costs $29.95 plus $6.95 shipping and handling. ®
