Apple has introduced Mighty Mouse, its next generation mouse, with several features that make using a Mac even more powerful and easy.
Mighty Mouse offers power users up to four independently programmable buttons, and introduces a Scroll Ball that lets users scroll in any direction—vertically, horizontally and even diagonally.
“With its innovative Scroll Ball and unique integration of multiple buttons, Mighty Mouse adds functionality while retaining the elegant, easy-to-use Apple design,” said David Moody, Apple’s vice president of Worldwide Mac Product Marketing.
Mighty Mouse features a single seamless enclosure with programmable touch sensors that act as primary or secondary buttons. With a simple click on the upper right or left side of the mouse, users can instantly access features such as contextual menus found in Mac OS X and other applications. Mighty Mouse’s two other buttons are activated by pressing its Scroll Ball and squeezing its sides.
Mighty Mouse fits the left or right hand and has an optical tracking engine for responsive and accurate cursor movement on almost any type of surface.
Mighty Mouse is priced at $49.
