Logitech Cube Emerges with Cubical Mouse

January 5, 2012, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

In today’s world, it is difficult for us to spot anyone who doesn’t use a computer mouse. As days progress, innovation is exhibited in every form of electronic gadgets, even to computer peripherals.

Here we are featuring a stylish mouse from Logitech. Logitech has revived the traditional appearance of mouse by imparting a cubical shape to this inevitable gadget in our daily life.

The mouse lacks the curves that a traditional mouse usually has. It seems that the design tool involved only a set of rulers since the architecture is purely linear.

This is a multi- tasking device which could be switch between as a mouse as well as a presentation controller. The switching is automatic and it works like a touch- sensitive track pad of a laptop.

In mouse mode, you just have to operate the device by scrolling over its sensitive surface, similar to what you do with a laptop mouse. But in presentation mode, your slide will be dragged one past the other by clicking the cube in a rectangular orientation.

The operation is simpler than with a conventional mouse. To make it even simpler, Logitech is offering a “smooth scrolling” plugin.

Unlike a formal mouse it needs to be charged. The charging is facilitated through a micro-USB cable.

The mouse is connected to your computer through Logitech’s USB Unifying receiver dongle. And it can be operated even at a distance of 25 meters.

For now, the device seems to be cool with respect to usage and portability. You can now order the device online and the cost of the cube mouse is $69.99.
