Logitech today announced the Logitech MX 1000 Laser Cordless Mouse, which it says is the world’s first mouse to use laser illumination and tracking. “We’ve turned off the red light on these optical mice and replaced it with an invisible laser that will change the industry,” said David Henry, Logitech senior vice president of the Control Devices Business Unit. “Laser will eventually make the optical mice of today obsolete. With laser technology, mice will see more microscopic detail. The nature of laser light gives mice the ability to track with amazing accuracy on more surfaces with more responsiveness than ever before.” The Logitech MX 1000 Laser Cordless Mouse will be available beginning this month for a suggested retail price is US$79.95.
