Tim originally came to Gizmag as a developer, much to the dismay of anyone who had to maintain, build on, or rewrite his code. After wearing every other hat that didn't have a head for it, he became CEO in 2010. Outside Gizmag, he trains Muay Thai and plays too much Destiny.

Gizmag tries out Evoluent's VerticalMouse

While the future of the human–computer interaction is looking more promising by the day, for every Leap Motion or Oculus Rift in the wild, there's still millions of people who rely on a mouse to do their job – a device that by its very nature forces their forearm and wrist into a variety of unnatural positions, inevitably causing varying levels of discomfort and/or pain. Gizmag's Tim Hanlon has been testing the VerticalMouse for over a month, and is shocked at the difference it made to his life.  Read More

Pioneer's DDJ-WeGO DJ console is perfect for beginners, or veterans on a budget When CDs replaced vinyl as the DJ format du jour, Pioneer established itself as the club standard with classics like the DJM-600 mixer and the CDJ-1000 CD player. Now that there's a whole generation of DJs coming of age who've never owned a CD in their life, Pioneer's latest bit of kit caters for the digital DJ who can't afford something like the XDJ-AERO.  Read More

In an article last month, I assumed that news of the PS Vita not hitting shelves until 2012 would have left Nintendo executives feeling as if they'd dodged a bullet - I was clearly mistaken. On August 12, Nintendo dropped the price of the 3DS to US$170, leading to a 260% jump in sales.
