Microsoft Reveals Explorer Touch Mouse

Microsoft Reveals Explorer Touch Mouse

Microsoft's cooking up a new mouse? It sure looks like it! Without any fanfare to speak of, the Microsoft Explorer Touch Mouse has popped up across the pond at a Christmas in July event. First snapped by Pocket-lint, this new touch/haptic-sensitive mouse was seen first at a showcase, and even still hasn't officially been announced. The real highlight feature is the BlueTrack technology, which allows you to mouse on pretty much any surface outside of clear glass, and a scroll pad that has optional haptic feedback. There's also a total of five customizable buttons that can be adjusted for use with righties and lefties, and it obviously looks a good bit like the Arc Mouse that was announced recently by the company.

It's scheduled to be released in the UK later in the month for £69.99, and hopefully it'll spread to other regions in due time.

I wasnt impressed by the performance of microsofts 4000 mouse i own compared to my logitech m505 mice. The bluetrack tech does offer nice battery life and decent performance on some surfaces my logitech cant read, but the mouse cant read well on my mouse pads and furniture fabric, where i mostly use my my laptop mice.

Not sure about there new high end gaming mouse like the sidewinder x8 that use bluetrack, but hopefully it performs better for a 100$.

I'll stick to my Logitech mouses, just never had any issues with it so i'll stay put for now. :)
