The light beam that emanates from the bottom of the mouse is more than four times as large as the average laser beam used in today’s mice, according to Microsoft. This allows larger images to be captured, in turn providing a better surface reflection. In addition to providing more efficient tracking on varied surfaces, the company says BlueTrack further trumps laser technology because lasers are more sensitive to dust and dirt accumulation. The Microsoft Explorer Mouse with BlueTrack technology ($99.95; www.microsoft.com) features a wireless snap-in transceiver for easy portability, 30-foot wireless range, blue lighting effects, customizable buttons, and a battery that allows three weeks of use between charges.
This Microsoft Explorer Mouse features Microsoft’s BlueTrack technology, which blends optical and laser technologies to provide enhanced tracking capabilities on a variety of surfaces.
