Touchy, Feely Mice are on the Horizon

All of us have morphed with the mouse. We've evolved from the archaic mouse of yesteryear that was a basic, point-and-click device to a mouse that has a left thumb button. And, of course, there's the remote, wireless mouse.

In an effort to continue with mouse innovations, Logitech has unveiled their new iFeel Mouseman, a interactive device that actually makes the user feel a part of a Web page.

For example, if the mouse were to roll over an image of an ice cube, the effect would be very smooth to the touch. The mouse has the ability to sense what kind of image it is touching and react accordingly. As a result, the user has a much more 'visual' experience that today's point and click mouse.

The mouse also uses optical technology, which means there is no need for a track ball. Logitech is hoping the iFeel Mouseman gains the company even more market share than its current 60 percent. It is expected to retail for a $39 to $59 depending on the model chosen. iFeel is expected to be released in late September.
