Mouse works well on glass and fur
The mouse, an important accessory for navigating and accessing PC features, is definitely here to stay despite the emergence of touch technology in computing devices.
Taiwan-based computer peripherals company A4 Tech recognizes this fact and has come out with a mouse that can now function on clear glass, glossy and furry surfaces, including hair.
The V-Track Padless Mouse features a revolutionary technology called the vertical incident light utilization that makes it possible for a mouse to run with precision on any surface.
A4 Tech product manager John Lim claims the V-Track Mouse is better than other technologies such as the optical mouse and laser mouse, which cannot run on glass or glossy surface.
The A4 Tech V-Track Mouse may also be considered better than Microsoft’s blue track mouse, which can function on a glass surface but not on a surface that contains hair or fur.
Aside from making mouse pads obsolete, the A4 Tech V-Track Mouse is also dust proof and consumes less power.
Prices of the new mouse products range from P300 to P450 for the wired versions. Prices of the wireless versions start at P700.—Raquel P. Gomez
