The concept of replacing traditional mechanical buttons with touch sensitive buttons is finding it's way onto more and more computer products. Every monitor I've owned for the last few years now has had touch sensitive buttons. Same goes for the latest LED TV we just bought, many laptop function buttons, and now even your mouse? The mechanical clicking of a mouse button is something we've grown accustomed to ever since the computer mouse was born. However, in an attempt to modernize the mouse a little further, we're starting to see some manufacturers experimenting with various touch mouse designs.
Here today I have the Microsoft Touch Mouse - although it isn't the first touch mouse on the market, it's certainly one of the sleekest looking ones. Designed to integrate with Windows 7, the Touch Mouse even supports multi-touch features, allowing you to use one, two or even three fingers to control a variety of functions in the Windows operating system. I'm all about finding a way to do more with less and am excited to see if the features of the Touch Mouse will being as practical in use as they are written on the box.
