Posted on 5:02 PM by abhishek jain


If media reports have to be believed, we should get ready to see yet another high-profile Microsoft product. According to media reports, Microsoft Research has come up with its prototypes, meant for addressing the problems found in the Windows 7 touchscreen.

Microsoft is said to have thought of developing the latest multi-touch mice after facing problems in the Microsoft Windows 7. Cnet reports that the Redmond-based software giant has developed a series of prototype mice to address the multi-touch gestures.

The five mice, crafted by Microsoft are known as the Frustrated Total Internal Reflection (FTIR), the Orb, the Capacitive (Cap), the Articulated (Arty) and the Side. Going by the names, we can get some hints of their utility. For instance, FTIR mouse. It is based on the principle of frustrated total internal reflection, and comes built-in with a camera to keep track of a user’s touch.

The Orb is a semi-circular structure, which is said to come integrated with an IR-sensitive camera. The mouse comes in a design, which helps keep user’s palm in a comfy position. The flexible matrix of capacitive-sensing electrodes of the Cap mouse boasts of keeping note of the position of multiple fingers on its surface. Some of the prominent features are included with compactness and energy efficiency.

Coming to the Side mouse, this mouse can be optimized if you want to rest your palm. It is claimed to form a multi-touch area directly in front of it. This area is not prohibited to the physical surface of the device. In addition, the Aryt mouse also boasts of enhancing and glorifying the Side mouse. It extends a base for the palm of the hand to rest on while the two arms can be freely moved around the table by the fingers.

So far, there is no official announcement of these mice has been made by the company, it will take time. But, these mice will definitely revolutionize the computing world.
