[Engadget] Microsoft Touch Mouse unveiled, available for $80 in June

No, that's not Microsoft's Arc Touch mouse, it's just the Touch Mouse. Confusing, we know, but this one is more than just a mouse with a touch strip -- the entire top of it consists of a "matrix of capacitive touch-sensing electrodes," and naturally, it supports different multittouch gestures. Based on Microsoft Research concepts, the device will support a slew of gestures, including flicks, pinch-to-zoom, and panning.

Wonder if this is any better than the magic mouse. I could never get the hang of it.

I can see this work kinda like a trackpad and a phone screen all at once.

So I noticed from the video that you cant have both fingers touching the mouse while browsing, it would be VERY annoying to have my fingers slightly raised all the time.

I think that would be quite easy to get used to actually. If you've ever used a Macbook touchpad, this stuff comes quite natural.

That was my first concern. Having your fingers hovering like that cant be good for you. Anyone here suffer from RSI? You would know better than anyone how using this mouse would affect your condition... if at all.

i agree, the mouse is a bad idea for THIS reason i have been in positions like this before and you never get used to lifting that finger ^^

watching that video was like watching a digital orchestra :O, I wouldn't want it though personally. I'm a stubborn mule and I haven't learned to like touch screen phones so there is no way I'm ready for that lol.
