You guys are looking at this product in the wrong way. This is a presenter tool first, mouse second. The only people who would be interested in this are possibly certain business people and professors at a university.

Logitech has pledged to revolutionise the computer mouse with its new Logitech Cube, a tiny brick-shaped touchscreen mouse that doubles as a presenter.
The Cube comes with Logitech's Flow Scroll technology, meaning you swipe your finger down the main panel to scroll the pages, similar to a smartphone.
Lifting the product in the air automatically transforms it into a presenter, and you click the top button to advance slides in Powerpoint presentations.
The gaming possibilities of this would be amazing, especially at lan parties.

If I'm not mistaken... isn't it basically just a rectangular touchpad? I doesn't appear that it would have a sensor and "feet" at the bottom that its like a wireless touchpad.


**Edit**

Just checked logitech's website... it does have a sensor on the bottom. It is kind of cool, although i wish is was a bit more ergonomic

But will it blend?

That's probably the most unergonomic thing I've seen since someone put a button on a brick and called it a TV remote.


See? I had to make something up, because I honestly can't think of anything more unergonomic. I can't imagine using it for more than two minutes without either searing pain or intense frustration.

I almost thought it was some sort of mini projector when I first saw it. That USB port almost looked like a HDMI at a quick glance.

It's pretty much similar function to the Magic Mouse (not the Mighty Mouse that had the great, but yet horrible scroll ball) but in the form of a non-ergonomic brick. Seems like a fingerprint magnet to me. Black and chrome just shows fingerprints a lot more than what white does.

For $70? Eh, I'd rather get one of the mice that has the presentation buttons on the bottom and is a bit cheaper.
