Logitech launches new mouse that works on glass surfaces
January 16, 2010
Logitech, the world's largest manufacturer of computer mice, has unveiled a new mouse ‘Anywhere Mouse M905’ featuring dark-field laser tracking that lets you use your mouse on clear glass and high-gloss surfaces.
"Thanks to Logitech Darkfield, whether you're checking the morning news from the granite counter top in your kitchen or at work manipulating a spreadsheet from your glass desk, you can be confident that your Logitech mouse will be up to the task," said Rory Dooley, Logitech's senior vice president and general manager of the company’s Control Devices business unit.
Logitech said that its research showed that 40% of people have a glass surface in their home. This coupled with the increase in the popularity of laptop computers, means that people are moving around and coming into contact with a multitude of surfaces—like granite and lacquered wood—that challenge the tracking capabilities of standard mice. To overcome these limitations, the company has launched a new mouse that works well on even a clear glass and high-gloss surface.The Anywhere Mouse M905 is available at Rs5,595.
