Peripheral maker, Logitech, has released the Touch Mouse M600 – a touch-sensitive control device that allows users to interact with a computer via touch and swipe gestures.
“People are growing accustomed to using fingertip gestures to navigate on their smartphones and tablets,” said Reon Coetzee, Country Manager for Logitech South Africa and developing countries.
“In fact, for many people, these gestures have become second nature. The Logitech Touch Mouse M600 reflects this evolution in how we interact with the digital world and extends to the computer what have become natural, intuitive motions.”
The mouse features scroll- and swipe-gesture support, and can be controlled like a regular mouse to navigate the cursor in a desktop environment.
It also features an ambidextrous design for use with the left or right hand – as well as smooth edges and a curved shape to improve comfort during operation.
The M600 comes bundled with a Logitech unifying receiver, which can connect up to six compatible mice and keyboards through one USB port.
The Touch Mouse M600 is expected to be available from February at Incredible Connection retail stores, with a suggested retail price of R999.
