The humble mouse has been resting on our desks for too long says Logitech. Banishing the mouse mat to PC history it’s announced the MX Air – a wireless controller par excellence.Its full title spells it out pretty neatly; it’s a ‘Rechargeable Cordless Air Mouse’. Translation: On your desk it’s a precision laser mouse, in your hand it’s a Wii-like navigator with gesture controls.So when listening to music as we are oft wont to do, just wave it left or right to adjust the volume, or give a little flick of the wrist to skip tracks – Sansa Shaker style.It also gets Chocolate-esque touch sensitive controls in place of a scroll wheel and a smart desktop stand to keep it charged and ready.Such pointer luxury doesn’t come cheap, mind, a round £100 will snare you one. Or you could attempt to hack your Wiimote with a trackball. The choice is yours.Essentials Logitech MX Rechargeable Cordless Air Mouse Price: £100 On sale: August Contact: Logitech Related stories: GLaser Mouse likes glass, hates cheese BT turns laptops into tilting tablets Gadget of the Day – Logitech NuLOOQ
