running on Windows 8, but lack of a touchscreen to fully optimized the the latest Windows OS’s multitouch gestures functionality? no worries at all cos’ ASUS has just the answer for that: the ASUS VivoMouse Wireless TouchPad Mouse. aesthetically, this 3-in-1 input device looks suspiciously like the remote from the comedy Click (except it looks a little less ‘comical’), but less the funky life forwarding/skipping and pause buttons. speaking of remote, this little guy is also a handy remote control that gives you one-handed control away from your desktop and the large circular thing there, is a touchpad that offers full support for Windows 8 multitouch gestures. of course, by nature, it is also a regular optical mouse too. so there you have it, a single sleek input device that does it all. so, who really cares if your PC’s display is not touchscreen capable? cos’ this mouse will take care of that.
unfortunately, availability and pricing information are not forthcoming at the time of this writing, but we may be hearing more once COMPUTEX Taipei kicks off on the 4th. in the mean time, scroll down for another look, or keep your eyes peeled on ASUS website for any updates.
