Logitech, masters of mice and input magic have had a Frankenstein moment. Mad scientists working in Logitech’s labs have combined the touch surface of a laptop with the function – proportions and shape – of a traditional mouse. After building their new Mousenstein they applied charge and were heard to say ‘It is Alive!!’
Thankfully this experiment didn’t give rise to a hideous monster, instead Logitech’s new Touch Mouse M600 is a gleaming example of modern gadgetry. With its entire top surface coated in the shiniest of black touch surfaces the wireless M600 brings another evolutionary step to the humble rodent.
The left and right mouse clicks are the simplest tap gesture, Logitech’s software allows easy assignment of the left and right button click area, making the M600 especially left handed friendly. Scrolling and swiping gestures bring the touch surface to life. A slow swipe is perfect for reading online, while a quick flick gets you to the bottom of the page fast. Comfortable in either hand the M600 also allows gestures to be executed from anywhere on the surface, no longer do we need to alter our grip to work with the rodent.
