Eclipse Touch Mouse
The Eclipse touchmouse features four-way touch scrolling and a sloping ergonomic design
Like the Apple Magic Mouse that came before it, the Eclipse touchmouse drops the scroll wheel in favor of an integrated track pad. While the default for the touchscroll offers four-way screen scrolling by a user moving their index finger, a host of instantly accessible commands like flicking backward and forwards through webpages can be accessed through the mouse button and finger gesture combination.
Cased in an ergonomically designed “brushed aluminum” finish, the unit offers Bluetooth connectivity, 1600dpi laser technology, and runs on a single AA battery.
The Eclipse touchmouse is compatible with Windows 7, Vista and XP and is expected to be released later this year for US$59.99.
Actually, I have used a similar mous (Icon7 Twister 1000), that has similar shape and touch scroll. It was terrible. Absolutely not ergonomic, very uncomfortable.
The shape made my hand suffer after 15 minutes, the touch scroll was very unreliable, it was impossible to set so smooth and precise as the traditional wheel.
I work with graphical software and I can tell you, these kind of mices are rather design toys than serious tools for work.
