Logitech's new MX Air-Mouse


Logitech
has announced a new MX Air Rechargeable Cordless Air Mouse, laser mouse that can be used on the desk and in air. It's a Wii-like mouse, and it looks good.

This new mouse combines three technologies, like Freespace motion-control, gesture command and wireless. Another inovation is the touch-sensitive scroll panel that will replace the original and well known scroll wheel. The new touch scroll will adjust its speed according to the speed of the finger swipe. Freespace motion control, according to PR is designed to provide accurate, responsive navigation, and it should distinguish intentional and unintentional hand movements.

Gesture commands should be as natural and intuitive, for example, to change the volume, user press and hold the volume button and simply gesture to the right to increase volume, or to the left to decrease it. New MX Air mouse uses Logitech 2.4 GHz Digital Cordless technology which is enough for the range of up to 10 meters (30 feet).

New mouse should be available in U.S. and Europe sometime in August. Suggested retail price is $149.99. You can check out the video on Youtube here, as it shows how the mouse is intended to work.
