Somewhere deep in the bowels of Logitech, a committee, attempting to think outside of the box, created a box. It’s called the Cube (even though it’s clearly not a cube) and it’s a mouse. And a presenter. I think.
The tiny mouse is designed with portability in mind. The top portion houses two hidden mouse buttons and also a portion for scrolling. To scroll “swipe your finger along the main panel,” says the press release. Then if you lift the mouse up, it turns into a presenter allowing the user to advance slides by just click the top of the device. The Cube connects to a computer though Logitech’s tiny Unifying 2.4 GHz receiver. Or, if you wish, the mouse can also connect via MicroUSB.
Look for the Logitech Cube this month at a suggested retail price of $69.99. Hopefully the device is a bit more comfy than the geometric shape suggests. It looks like arthritis to me.
Founded in 1981, Logitech designs and manufactures computer and electronics peripherals such as mice, keyboards, speakers. They have been making computer keyboards and mice for HP, Apple, Dell, and also for platforms such as PlayStation. Their products sell universally, which is on account of their innovative range of options with a focus on products that deal with navigation in PCs, gaming, music, communications, and home-entertainment control.
