Elecom Touchpad Mouse

Japan's Elecom today revealed its flagship travel mouse, the M-D!3UR. The controller's distinctive shape is meant to provide the best aspects of both desktop and laptop mice, according to Elecom: the back of the mouse rotates 180 degrees, creating either a more natural angle when the mouse is in active use at a desk or a flatter surface for storage.

Other elements of the controller reflect its performance-oriented design, the company says. A touchpad replaces a physical scroll wheel, eliminating the common problem of accumulating dirt inside the shell. The D13UR is also a high-precision laser mouse and connects wirelessly to a host PC through a 2.4GHz RF adapter, a slot for which is included in the base of the mouse for portability. The input device ships within a few days in black, silver, and red colors for the equivalent of $68 US; it should be available for import from GeekStuff4U soon.
