Hardware News   Hardware News : COCOLINO Mouse Interface
   posted by DJS on 15-May-2004 16:27:11 (3085 reads)
Elbox Computer is pleased to announce release of the COCOLINO mouse interface.
COCOLINO is a PS/2 mouse interface, with the unique capability of supporting two scroll wheels and 3rd, 4th and 5th buttons available in many PS/2 mice nowadays. The COCOLINO interface simply plugs into the Amiga's mouse port.


Features:

* The COCOLINO PS/2 Mouse Interface is a microprocessor-based adapter for attaching PS/2 mice, trackballs, glidepoints and radio-controlled mice from the world of PC computers.

* COCOLINO works with all models of Amiga computers. It simply plugs into the Amiga's mouse port.

* The COCOLINO PS/2 Mouse Interface is a full 'plug and play' device. No software is required for standard use. The enclosed software (cocolino.driver) allows using two wheels and 3rd, 4th and 5th buttons available in many PS/2 mice and trackballs.

* The COCOLINO interface starts working simultaneous with the computer's start so mice can be used in the early-startup-menu (unlike the mice connected through the serial port).

* COCOLINO uses linear movement interpolation, which makes mouse movements perfectly smooth with any screen frame rates.

The package contents:

Included in the package is the COCOLINO PS/2 Mouse interface and a diskette containing the software (cocolino.driver) to use the two scrollers on wheel mice and additional mouse buttons.


Pricing and availability:

The COCOLINO PS/2 Mouse interface is on sale now at the suggested retail price of only $35.95 (VAT excl.)

To locate an authorized distributor in your area or to purchase the product online visit the Elbox Computer website at <www.elbox.com/buy.html>.

For bundle offers (Cocolino and scroll mice) visit the Interface section of the Elbox Online Store.


For more information see: Cocolino website.

Why would you want it to work on the AmigaOne? I thought the A1 used standard PS2 mouse devices anyway?

With regard to the classic Amiga, I hope that the COCOLINO works better than the MROOCHECK, which I didn't like at all.

Whoever first buys one of these needs to do a small review on it!

An A1200/A600 keyboard to PS/2 konverter would be neat. Gutting an A600 or A1200 and put a microA1 inside :)

It seems the new generation Mroocheck/Punchiniello. I have mroochekcon my 1200 and i like ti because i can usa a good logitech mouse with 3 buttons and wheel. The only thing that i hate of mroocheck is that it doesn't support optical device. I hope that it is fixed in this new product.

Thanks Elbox for supporting the classic market. I think i'll buy in the future a SpiderUSB to exchange data easily between my pcs and AmigaOne with my usb pen.

This is a very similar product(identical) to the Topolino or Eyetechs EZ-Mouse.

Strange that Elbugs have come out with this when there is similar products on the market.

The AmigaOne supports either a standard PS2 mouse or USB.

I have the Punchinello Mk2 on my A1200. It works well until you try to play a Warp3D game, at which point the thing just goes mad. The left button thinks its the right button and vise-versa, and the wheel thinks its always spinning!

Sound like your amiga is infected with MSwindows.

@Swaug

Maybe it is the same thing. Power computing resells Elbox hardware with different name.

Power Tower = E/Box
Punchiniello = Mroocheck
Power Flyer = FastATA2

Cocolino has some advantages over EZ-Mouse, e.g. the linear movement interpolation and the 5th mouse button support.

Are you infected by the E3B naming behaviour?

What's a problem?
I think that the possibility of a choice is a good thing.
