The only mouse which has the feature to pack itself up, developed specially for space envy travelers. Microsoft’s Arc Touch Mouse has the ability to change shape as it can fold flat to fit perfectly which makes it perfect for travel. The latest gadget by Microsoft guarantee’s comfort as the Mouse is designed to keep your palm at rest.

The touch feature in the mouse makes use of the center strip for scrolling and mouse click for page up/down.

Brett Ostrum, GM Hardware Group at Microsoft, told:
This is not the first time that the mouse has been threatened — look at 10 years ago when people started buying laptops that had integrated pointers and touch pads. Still, the mouse category continued to grow and grow. The reasons people need external mice will not change: comfort and precision. The Arc Touch Mouse just demonstrates again how committed Microsoft is to continuing to bring great new mice to consumers.
