If you must use your PC mouse on a granite kitchen work surface or around a bath’s edge, then Microsoft’s new mouse tracking technology lets you do just that. Its BlueTrack is designed to let mouse lovers work on pretty much any surface they come across, including living rooms carpets. Although tarmac may be out of the question …
not that I was planning to get one...
... but why the hell doesn't this "BlueTrack" mouse using "Bluetooth", rather than needing some stupid, proprietary dongle?
Will it still leap from one side of the screen to the other at the whim of the mouse driver because of some dirt or "thing" on the desk that interfers with the beam.
Still 50 quid for a mini mouse is a little steep.
Will it work on mirrors?
That seems to be the biggest limitation of most optical/laser mice, although I've never tried carpet or asphalt.
I guess it just goes to show that even Satan incarnate can do good things.
