Belkin Washable Mouse

Solving the frequent problem of grime on mice, Belkin on Wednesday took the unusual step of releasing the Washable Mouse. A watertight body and materials add enough water resistance to the design that it can be run under a faucet, scrubbing free the bacteria and dirt that accumulates over time. The technology underneath is also more advanced than some rugged mice, Belkin says: it uses a touch-sensitive pad for horizontal and vertical scrolling as well as a 1200 DPI optical sensor that provides better-than-average tracking, especially on unorthodox mousing surfaces such as upholstery. The Washable Mouse is driven by USB and should work with Macs and Windows PCs alike when it ships in August for $30.

As a companion to the Washable Mouse, Belkin has also rolled out the Mouse Trap: the hybrid bag unzips to create a circular and slip-free mousepad, making it ideal for notebook users and others who need to carry a mouse and other small gadgets on the road. Its snap-on hook lets it attach to the outside of a larger bag when space is tight inside. The Mouse Trap comes in multiple colors including burnt orange, peony (pink), tarragon (green), and tourmaline (blue) and should already be available for $13.
