Walking clients through a power point presentation can be a daunting task. The last thing you need to deal with is manipulating that awkwardly corded mouse while you guide them through last year’s sales figures. Fear not, because Logitech feels your anguish.
Today, the company announced the Cube. It’s form factor says anything but mouse, but that’s exactly what it is. In terms of functionality, the Cube can work like any other cordless mouse, with the added benefit of a touch sensitive main panel that you can swipe your finger across to scroll through the page – Logitech says this experience is analogous to that of a touchscreen phone, large in part thanks to their Flow Scroll software. Pick up the mouse and it automatically converts it into presenter mode and a click of its cues up the next slide. Reversing is as simple as turning your hand over and clicking the very same button, where upon the presentation will return to the previous page. Like many of Logitech’s other wireless mouse, the Cube includes their unifying receiver, which works with up to 6 of their devices simulatanouesly, and is so damn small you’ll probably forget that it’s there. While battery life should be pretty stellar, Logitech has also included a power switch for powering down the Cube, further extending its life span between charges.
The Logitech Cube will arrive in store sometime this January for $69.99.
