Apple’s New Magic Mouse Uses Multi-Touch Instead of Buttons and Wheels

Apple Magic Mouse

There’s a new mouse in the house and it’s from Apple. It calls itself the Magic Mouse – it uses finger gestures instead of mechanical buttons and scroll wheels. The top of the mouse is a seamless surface using Multi-Touch technology.

Apple describes it thus: Magic Mouse features a seamless touch-sensitive enclosure that allows it to be a single or multi-button mouse with advanced gesture support. Using intuitive gestures, users can easily scroll through long documents, pan across large images or swipe to move forward or backward through a collection of web pages or photos. Magic Mouse works for left or right handed users and multi-button or gesture commands can be easily configured from within System Preferences.

“Apple is the Multi-Touch leader, pioneering the use of this innovative technology in iPhone, iPod touch and Mac notebook trackpads,” said Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Product Marketing. “Apple’s Multi-Touch technology allows us to offer an easy to use mouse in a simple and elegant design.”

Available in October, the Magic Mouse will retail for $69. It comes bundled as standard accessory with the new iMac.
