Integrating Copying And Pasting Of Data Between Devices

A method is disclosed herein to share data such as images, files, documents, text, etc. The method integrates copying and pasting of data between devices. The method and system spans the devices using a common physical device to integrate copying and pasting of the data between the devices. The common physical device may be a mouse.

In an implementation, the disclosed method and system integrates a common physical computer mouse with internal data storage modules. The internal data storage may include, but is not limited to, flash Random Access Memory (RAM) and a USB key. The mouse communicates with computer systems or devices using one of, but not limited to, Bluetooth, wireless USB adapters and Near-field communication (NFC). The mouse includes a mechanism for invoking commands for copying and pasting the data on other devices. The commands may also be invoked using remap buttons. Responsive to a user invoking the copy command, the mouse intercepts the copy command and additionally copies onto the mouse's buffer. When the user invokes the paste command, the mouse again intercepts the paste command and retrieves the paste buffer from the mouse's buffer. Thus, in addition to intercepting the copy-paste commands, the mouse also allows the system to copy (or paste) data into an internal buffer of the mouse. The mouse copies the data from a machine buffer into an internal storage of the mouse. The method and system is also responsive to different types of data, such as an image going to an image folder or a video file loading automatically.

The method and system utilizes a USB dongle specific for mouse interception of the copy-paste commands. The mouse spans the devices using the copy-paste enabled USB dongles based on the closest machine available. The mouse also has an integrated memory. The mouse includes copy paste buttons that invokes the special inter...
