Sanwa MA-TOUCH1: Multi-touch Mouse Released

Do you like to use the conventional style of mouse or do you like to have something a little different? If you like something different then this could be the mouse for you.

So what makes this different to other multi-touch devices? For a start the shape of it, the MA-TOUCH1 is flat on the surface which is a little different to Apple’s current “Magic Mouse”, which fits directly into your relaxed hand.

The mouse offers multi-touch with a difference; you can go in just about any direction you want as the device is flat! It supports four directional scrolling as well as two finger swiping, it even has the left and right clicks in expected locations.

This is a device that could help with “lefties” that struggle to get a mouse that they can use, but also for anyone that is looking for a decent multi-touch mouse for windows based systems. Lastly, it comes in a range of colors; you can get it in white, silver, red or black.
