Think of one object that you frequently use that technologically has improved over the years but not really looked any different? I’ll tell you, it is a computer mouse. Every now and again a new model will be released that looks slightly different, but to be honest it still looks the same size, shape, and color of others on the market. However, Microsoft aims to change this by employing world renowned artists (Kirra Jamison, Matt Moore, Linn Olofsdotter, Mike Perry and Jonny Wan ) to help design beautiful mice that feature bright colorful patterns. These designs will be released under the Wireless Mobile Mouse 3500 Studio Series of mice.
In the past Microsoft and other mouse manufactures have based their mice selling point on its functions, but now they understand to get more sales that not only does it have to be functionally excellent but it needs to look great. The adapters for the wireless mouse have also been improved featuring a tiny USB adapter that protrudes out no more than a quarter on an inch when plugged in. This is particularly useful for laptop where older designs often stick out further and have to be removed when packing the laptop into its case.
Other technical details about the Microsoft’s Wireless Mouse 3500 Studio Series is the BlueTrack technology ensuring mouse movement is accurate and precise no matter what surface it is being used on. This series of mice will be powered by one AA battery and features LED battery indicator lights to let you know when it is about to run out. Dont expect to have to replace or recharge them anytime soon as they will last up to 8 months before running out.
How much will one of these mice set you back, only $29.99.
