The Logitech Cube Attempts To Redefine The Humble Mouse

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.
