microsoft wedge touch mouse + mobile keyboard

microsoft ‘wedge mobile keyboard’ and ‘wedge touch mouse’

celebrating its 30-year anniversary, microsoft has unveiled a series of accessories to complement windows 8 and the surface tablet which designboom previously covered here. the new pocket-sized ‘wedge touch mouse’ and ‘wedge mobile keyboard’ incorporates bluetooth technology, designed  specifically for use on the go. featuring bluetrack technology, the ‘wedge touch mouse’ can be used on virtually any surface, making it ideal for  using it at a coffee shop or at home on your couch. the new compact design provides four-way touch scrolling which makes it easier to navigate  menus on the tablet or desktop, and goes to sleep once the tablet is powered off.in order to provide a full integrated hardware and software experience,  the slim ‘wedge mobile keyboard’ utilizes a durable cover that not only protects it from scratches, but also quickly converts into a tablet stand. it includes a full-sized keyboard that pairs common windows 8 media and hot keys.     ‘wedge touch mouse’ 3/4 rear view of battery port

  • tryin’ to do the “i” thing

    wonder about the ergonomics of the mouse…

    dbkii says:
  • i actually kind of like how theyve done a minimal keyboard that doesnt look like an apple product… the mouse however, not to sure about that one…

    pat says:
  • Where\’s the \”I\”?
    because \”I\” don\’t see it!

    cj says:
  • i agree with pat… i think the keyboard is microsofts first decent product design in years..
    curious to see how the surface will pan out? bust?

    alvaro says:
  • Mouse pad looks very unconfortable!…

    luis1980 says:
  • Super nice!

    Peter says:
  • I would like to remind Alvaro about Microsoft Arc mouse (the first model). That was, and still is, a great product with great product design.

    Aaro says:
  • @aaro that i agree with, its actually the only mouse i ever use…
    but the mouse is almost 10 years old, you need to consistently be producing well thought out design, not just once in a blue moon.

    – the apple mouse though, would have to be one of the worst in terms of ergonomics
