HP unveils a “technological revolution”… the Wi-Fi mouse
HP has unveiled what it calls a “technological revolution” – a Wi-Fi mouse.
The new HP Wi-Fi Mobile Mouse is the first to connect over Wi-Fi, which HP said helps free up USB ports occupied by wired mice or wireless versions that require a USB-based radio frequency connector. It will work from up to 30 feet away.
“It ranks as a technological revolution because it eliminates wires and external receivers forever, offering total freedom at your fingertips,” HP said, seemingly without irony.
The technological marvel promises a nine-month battery life – twice that of Bluetooth rivals – and comes with five customisable buttons and a laser sensor. It features what HP describes as a “sculpted shape designed to fit like a glove in your hand”.
The Wi-Fi only works with Windows 7 machines and will be available this month for £40.
