Remember those cumbersome mouse balls? Man, we used to take them off our mice and bounce them on ceilings. Then, smart people had to ruin the fun by inventing the "optical" and "laser" mouse technology. Gah.
And then there's this: Microsoft launched a teaser ad on its hardware site with the slogan, "Say Goodbye To Laser". The ad also bears the date of Microsoft's Unified Communications event this September 9, where the company will most likely reveal a new mouse technology. According to Gizmodo, the site's readers have pointed to a product found at the German jungles of Amazon.com that shows a mouse emitting a blue light underneath--as oppossed to the typical red optic laser.
We'll see what Microsoft has in store for us, but for now, we just want something to play with again.
