Why settle for an ordinary looking rodent when you can "express your inner self" with "new dreamy colors and fanciful designs?" That's Logitech's pitch for their new Fantasy Collection, a range of products purportedly inspired by trends in fashion and pop culture, with a dash of storybook fancy and dark mystery thrown in (their words folks, not ours).

"With the Fantasy Collection, we add a little fun and inspiration to some of our most popular, affordable and easy-to-use computer peripherals," said Rory Dooley, Logitech’s senior vice president and general manager of the Control Devices business unit. "Our inspired colors and patterns bring a bit of fantasy into your world. With so many to choose from, you’re destined to find one that inspires you."



While Logitech is showing off a handful of mice decked out with the new color schemes, the company says their Fantasy Collection will extend to a broad range of products, everything from portable lapdesks to wireless keyboards and more. Oh joy?

Look for the new designs to start showing up in late May with most items priced under $30.

Popular Logitech Products in Fantastical Colors, Imaginative Patterns Set Your Imagination Free

 FREMONT, Calif. — May 26, 2010 — Today Logitech (SIX: LOGN) (NASDAQ: LOGI) introduced the Logitech® Fantasy Collection, a range of products in brilliant colors and fanciful patterns inspired by trends in fashion and pop culture that combine storybook fancy with dark mystery.  The collection lets you express your personality and create a world that’s distinctively yours with computer accessories as unique as you are.
 
“With the Fantasy Collection, we add a little fun and inspiration to some of our most popular, affordable and easy-to-use computer peripherals,” said Rory Dooley, Logitech’s senior vice president and general manager of the Control Devices business unit. “Our inspired colors and patterns bring a bit of fantasy into your world. With so many to choose from, you’re destined to find one that inspires you.”
 
Colorful Twists and Playful Patterns 
The Fantasy Collection is made up of a diverse mix of colors and patterns — including Fleur Dark, Blue Swirl and Pink Balance to name a few — all designed to set your imagination free.
 
With ornate and intricate patterns and architectural flourishes, the mysterious and elegant Fleur Dark evokes a sense of motion and moodiness that adds an edgy elegance to your computer. The subtle design and simple colors of Fleur Dark pair well with other products from the Fantasy Collection or with any of Logitech’s products.
 
Blue Swirl is an invitation to let go. Asymmetric, overlapping rings — inspired by the ripple effect from a single raindrop on a still pond — invite you to go with the flow. This calming yet energetic pattern is designed to pair well with the Peacock Blue products of the Fantasy Collection.
 
Pink Balance is inspired by an aerialist twirling high above the crowd.  This playful pattern is designed to add fun and daring to any computer. The design provides a whimsical balance when paired with Dusty Rose products in the collection.
 
The Fantasy Collection offers many additional patterns and colors across a broad range of Logitech products, including mice, portable lapdesks, and a wireless keyboard and cooling pad, among others. 
For information on which products you’ll find in each color and pattern, please visit www.logitech.com/fantasycollection.
 
Pricing and Availability
The Fantasy Collection offers you personal expression at an affordable price, with most pieces of the collection priced below U.S. $29.99. The new designs will be available in late May in the U.S. and many countries in Latin America, and will launch in Europe later this summer.

That's their pitch? Lol, sign me up for a fugly one. Actually I wouldn't mind the black or the red one, I bet it will give me a small performance boost in gaming as well.

Ugly designs. Too many devices are starting to look similar - I believe dell offers some laptops with eerily similar designs to these mice.

They have all this power and this is the best "Fantasy collection" they can come up with? Facepalm.

The one title picture of the mouse looks straight out of the 70's!

Current computer:

Asus G73JH-A1

Core i7 720QM

Mobility Radeon 5870 1GBVRAM

8GB Ram

1 X OCZ Vertex 2 120GB SSD

1 X 500GB HDD

17.3FHD (1080P) Panel

Blu Ray Drive (reader)

HDMI Out

I love Logitech, don't get me wrong. Their MX Revolution mouse is the bee's knees, both useful and pleasant in every application I launch. And their G19 keyboard, while having the occasional glitch, is a good solid unit with bells and whistles coming out the wazoo.

But these? ...I'll have to get back to you.

Besides, if they were issuing a line of "Fantasy designs," why did they pass over the hoochie mouse?
