Microsoft Explorer Touch Mouse

Tony Bradley Tony Bradley Profile: Tony Bradley

I have been using the Microsoft Arc Touch mouse as my travel companion since it came out. I love the way it snaps flat for travel, and snaps into an arc for use. The touch strip is cool, too. I love the Arc Touch, so I was excited to see Microsoft announce the desktop equivalent Explorer Touch mouse coming soon:

Today, Microsoft Hardware has announced the Explorer Touch Mouse. With the Explorer Touch Mouse, the folks at Microsoft Hardware have expanded on the touch strip technology seen on the Arc Touch Mouse by providing vertical and horizontal navigation, allowing you to swipe your mouse in any direction. They also added the ability to change the speed of scrolling from slow, to medium and then “hyperfast” for speeding through lengthy documents. And you can feel and hear how quickly you are scrolling via the haptic technology built in to the mouse. It also uses BlueTrack Technology so it can be used on a variety of surfaces beyond just your desk.
