The Microsoft Arc Touch Mouse is a wireless BlueTrack mouse that hosts a dual flat/curved design. It can be collapsed into a flat position for easy storage, and then later pulled into an ergonomically designed arced position. Featured are two flat mouse buttons and, more importantly, a capacitive touch strip with sensor pads between them. The touch strip functions like a scroll-pad and even includes haptic feedback to simulate the experience. Additionally, the Arc is designed mainly for Windows use (though it supposedly works on the MacBook Pro), as it can be customized via Windows-based software. This includes setting up tricks like double-tap to launch an application, or scroll fast for hyperfast scrolling.
