At CES, Microsoft taken the wraps off a new Touch Mouse designed for Windows 7. The Touch Mouse supports scrolling, panning, paging forward and back, docking, minimizing/maximizing, showing desktop, and more.
Touch Mouse lets people do everything they are used to doing with a mouse, such as point and click, but also adds gestures with one, two or three fingers to amplify the Windows 7 operating system by creating simple shortcuts to the tasks people want to do most.
Touch Mouse is equipped with BlueTrack Technology, letting consumers track on virtually any surface, and the tiny Nano transceiver is so small it never needs to come out of the USB port — just plug it in and forget it.
- One finger lets people manage individual documents or pages by flicking to quickly scroll, pan and tilt, and one thumb lets people move back or forward through a Web browser.
- Two fingers manage windows, letting people maximize, minimize, snap and restore them.
- Three fingers let people navigate their whole desktop, showing instant viewer or clearing their desktop.
