Aptly named, Microsoft has released a new device called the Touch Mouse at CES today. Bringing gesture control to all users, whether they have a touchscreen or not, the device aims to fill the gap between those of us who don’t have a screen to press and those who do.
Regardless of whether you’re a touchscreen fan or not, the mouse should bring some welcome function to the Windows 7 interface. Scrolling, panning, paging forward and back, docking, minimizing/maximizing, showing desktop and more events are all supported by the mouse which is available for pre-order now.
