Communication Assistant Tag Integration into Mouse/Trackball

      Disclosed is a new function of enhanced desktop equipment.

      Communication Assistant Tag (CAT) is a one of tool to assist
"line of sight" Infrared Ray (IR) communication by providing
relocatable function.  This equipment is usually placed on desk, like
Mouse and Trackball, which are known as pointing device of PC.

      In order to decrease such desk top equipments, Pointing device
