Product Info

Perfectly Portable Two Way Touch Scrolling Mouse

Arc Touch Mouse blends beauty and function. Haptic feedback (light vibration that signals scrolling speed) enables you to scroll vertically through documents or web pages as quickly—or as cautiously—as you need to, entirely by feel. Bend it to turn it on, flatten it to turn it off, and it is ready to go anywhere. You'll barely notice it's there.

Microsoft's innovative new Arc Touch Mouse offers a more natural way to navigate your PC. Now you can speed through long documents and web pages, move horizontally in spreadsheets, and much more—using simple finger movements instead of clicks. Once you try a Touch Mouse, you may never go back to a "regular" mouse again.

It's innovative, bendable tail makes Arc Touch Mouse perfect for people who are always on the go.


Perfectly Portable: Award Winning Touch Technology

Stylish and eye-grabbing, Arc™ Touch Mouse is more than a pretty device. It's reliable wireless freedom plus Microsoft touch technology, on the go. Use it just about anywhere, even on a rough wood surface or carpet, thanks to BlueTrack Technology. Plus you can retain wireless control of your computer up to 30 feet away.

Like conventional Mice, BlueTrack enabled Mice do not work on clear glass or mirrored surfaces.

Curve it for use, flatten for storage
Arc™ Touch Mouse's innovative design allows for quick use and storage. Curve it comfortably to get started. Then smoothly glide your finger up or down the touch strip. When you're done, keep the tiny transceiver plugged into your computer's USB port, or attach it magnetically onto the underside of the mouse. Then flatten Arc™ Touch Mouse to turn it off, and slip it into your pocket or bag as easily as a cell phone.

Precise vertical scrolling by feel, not wheel
The Touch strip on the Arc Touch Mouse responds precisely to the speed of your finger movement, using Haptic feedback (light vibration that signals scrolling speed) to scan through documents or web pages as quickly—or as cautiously—as needed, entirely by feel.
