MA-Touch1: Sanwa's Magic Mouse Clone For Windows PCs

Apple’s Magic Mouse has obviously inspired Japanese accessory maker Sanwa Supply: the Tokyo-based company is offering the MA-Touch1 [JP], a wireless mouse with a multi-touch enabled top shell. The main (technical) difference is that the Sanwa mouse doesn’t support Bluetooth but works via a wireless USB connection instead.

From a design perspective, the MA-Touch1 is completely flat on top – unlike the Magic Mouse, which has a curvy top shell. Users will be able to do four-direction scrolling, two-finger swipes, and right/left clicks (see below). Two AAA batteries will let you use the mouse for about 200 hours.

Sanwa sells the MA-Touch1 in black, white, silver, and red (price in Japan: $75). If you’re a Windows 2000/XP/Vista/7 user (no Mac support) living outside Japan, ask specialized online stores like Geek Stuff 4 U to get one for you.
