Arc Touch Mouse from Microsoft
View Slideshow

I can’t believe I’m posting about Microsoft, being an Apple gal myself but their new Arc Touch Mouse is some crazy cool technology! The Arc is designed to flatten for portability and pop up for comfort. It features a touch scroll strip allowing you to navigate with the touch of a finger.

Designed by Microsoft’s industrial design team, the mouse’s sleek and slim design considers portability, comfort and space. It fits easily into bags, pockets and take up less space on desktops. And it’s pretty, too. Oh, and Mac people — a similar version comes in white (but can’t be flattened). Don’t tell Apple that I might cheat on them if this version comes out in white, too!

The Arc Touch Mouse is available for presale at various online retailers and will ship in early December just in time for the holiday season. It will be available online and in stores in January 2011.
