Kompaktes, multifunktionales und nachhaltiges Computerperipheriegerät

(Fallstudie – Funktionsprototyp)

D mouse1_edited.jpg

Die D-Maus ist ein Multifunktionsgerät, das einen schnellen internen Speicher, einen SD-Kartenleser, eine Powerbank, einen Laserpointer und einen Fingerabdrucksensor in eine elegante Computermaus integriert.

Sein minimalistisches, nachhaltiges und innovatives Design eignet sich für Vielreisende, Fotografen, digitale Nomaden und Kreative, die unterwegs bequem und sicher ihre Medien sichern und ihre Geräte aufladen möchten.

Perforierter Stahl sorgt für sicheren Halt und erleichtert das Atmen der Handflächen bei langen Arbeitssitzungen.

Die D-Maus ist als sehr nachhaltiges Gerät konzipiert – sie besteht größtenteils aus Holz, recycelten und wiederverwertbaren Materialien, die am Ende des Produktlebenszyklus leicht getrennt werden können.



  • Bluetooth - zur  Navigation, Kopplung mit anderen Geräten und Smartphone-Anpassungen.

  • Integrierter Akku - das andere Geräte über ein USB-C-Kabel und drahtlos aufladen kann

  • Schneller interner Speicher (bis zu 2 TB) - für eine schnelle und bequeme Übertragung von Dateien bei Anschluss per Kabel

  • SD-Kartenleser - für die schnelle Übertragung großer Mediendateien von Kameras

  • Berührungsidentifikation - Um Dateien sicher zu machen, entsperren Sie den Computer, scrollen Sie mit dem Daumen in jede Richtung und fügen Sie benutzerdefinierte Gesten hinzu

  • Integriertes USB-C 4.0-Kabel - für Navigation mit geringer Latenz, schnelle Dateiübertragung und Aufladen

  • Interner Kühler - um die Handflächen trocken zu halten, den internen Speicher zu kühlen und Staub fernzuhalten

  • NFC-Chip - um mit einem einfachen Fingertipp eine Verbindung zum Smartphone herzustellen

  • Laserpointer - für Präsentationen (und gelegentliches Spielen mit Haustieren)

We know how frustrating it is to organize, forget, lose and find all the small SD cards, adapters and cables,

forget to charge the batteries and free space on our phones and cameras to record important moments.




  • No device designed for the specific needs of creative professionals

  • Computer mice have very limited features

  • They make hands sweaty after extensive use

  • Many new laptops come only with USB-C port and without (or with slow) SD card reader

  • Smartphone photos and videos files are getting bigger, they can take up a lot of phone's storage quickly

  • Almost all computer mice are plastic and cheap, not sustainable



Most computer mice on the market are made from plastic, come with very limited features.

There is not a single device that can meet all their needs for transferring files, charging and editing media.
