Microsoft Touch Mouse
The corporation Microsoft at CES 2011 has demonstrated its new development - the computer mouse Touch Mouse , but now we have seen some changes compared to the previous announcement of this device. The “fresh” version of the device became almost completely touch-sensitive and even lost a scroll wheel - it will also be replaced by a sensor. You can scroll by appropriate movements over the entire surface of the mouse. Only the right and left mouse buttons remained mechanical.
Pictures are clickable.
According to Microsoft , this mouse is more focused on Windows 7 . Many routine operations can be performed using gestures that the user can customize to their taste. So, you can record gestures, for example, to minimize windows, rename files and folders.
Touch Mouse is made using BlueTrack technology , which improves tracking of movements on a variety of surfaces.
The mouse has a wireless connection interface. The fact that it will be Bluetooth is not mentioned, so, obviously, we are talking about a radio frequency connection.
The device allows you to use 3 fingers simultaneously.
With one finger you can: scroll, enlarge images, move on the page left and right, up and down.
With two fingers you can: minimize to the taskbar, expand from it, expand the window to full screen
Three fingers you can: close all windows, switch to the desktop, open the task manager.
The device will be powered by 2 AAA batteries, which will last up to 5 months. The start of sales is scheduled for June this year, but now you can pre-order Touch Mouse on Amazon.com for $ 79.95.
And 2 more videos that are on amazon.com. In the near future I’ll try to upload to YouTube.
