Abstract

Disclosed is a system to embed the mouse and the mouse pad into the laptop. The mouse is wireless mouse and can charge while they are embedded in laptop. It can use any kind of wireless technologies, such as Bluetooth, infrared rays, etc. The sensor of the mouse is embedded in the laptop as well. This design is very similar with CD-ROM. We generally click the control button of CD-ROM and the tray will automatically eject. We propose that the embedded mouse and mouse pad can be designed similar as this. User can only click the designed control button on the laptop and then the mouse and mouse pad can eject from laptop automatically. Furthermore, the mouse has an USB slot and card reader inside, so it can be an additional USB slot and can read the data from the memory card while it is inside the laptop. The mouse pad can also be a writing pad, and the writing pen is embedded in the laptop like the pen inside the PDA.
