I say a unique. Yes, it’s a unique device from Microsoft. The unique is not only its design but also its operational. To turn the mouse on you need to arc its form and flatted to turn off. And for scrolling, you just need to click, tap, flick, and control. It’s a new innovation, and dandy.
Microsoft Arc Touch mouse is operated by 2.4 GHz wireless USB nano transceiver that snaps into the bottom of the mouse. The device can work up to 30-foot wireless range or it’s about 5m from your computer and using 2 AAA batteries that stay up to 6 months. And thanks to BlueTrack technology and arc form, the mouse can roll on rough glossy, or soft surface and perfectly fit your hand as well.
Compacted in 58mm(wide) and 130.6mm (long), Microsoft didn’t tell us about its price tag. Maybe you can ask Microsoft about Arc Touch mouse at CES 2011 (ask also their tablet PC). [Dandy Gadget Source]
