Whether or not touch is the future, you’ll probably still want a mouse in the meantime. Asus’ new VivoMouse is a futuristic-looking stopgap, mixing full, multi-touch gestures with good old-fashioned point-and-click. Also it looks like it came from space.
The (janky) Microsoft Touch Mouse has been doing this ever since a driver update last year, but if nothing else, the VivoMouse is remarkable for looking like a phaser shacked up with a space pizza-cutter, and somehow got a wireless mouse in on the action. You know, exactly what you’re looking for in a mouse. Price and availability TBA.
