Microsoft Announces Two New Mice With New Windows Button

Microsoft Sculpt Mouse

Microsoft today announced two new mice designed specifically with Windows 8 devices in mind. These mice include a Windows button on them, giving you quick and easy access to specific features in Windows.

Sculpt Comfort Mouse

The Sculpt Comfort Mouse has a touch-sensitive blue strip on its side called the Windows touch tab that makes it easy to navigate Windows 8 with just the touch or swipe of a finger. You can press the strip to go to your Start screen.

But it does more than just take you to your Start screen. If you swipe up on the blue strip, it cycles through all your open Windows Store apps in Windows 8. And if you swipe down, it will reveal all the open apps (on the left side of your screen) for you to select the one you want. You don’t have to worry about a tiny USB transceiver since the Sculpt Comfort Mouse uses Bluetooth to connect to your Windows PC or tablet. It also has a comfortable ergonomic design and our BlueTrack technology to be used on pretty much any surface.

The Sculpt Comfort Mouse will be available in June for $39.95 USD.

Sculpt Mobile Mouse

Sculpt Mobile Mouse has a four-way scrolling that makes you navigate the Start screen in Windows 8 or apps that scroll horizontally a breeze.

The Sculpt Mobile Mouse will be available in May for an estimated retail price of $29.95 USD.
