You will recognize a computer mouse as a pointing device when you see one, but this one here from Logitech, called MX Vertical Advanced Ergonomic Mouse, is not immediately apparent. It doesn’t even look like a mouse to begin with if not for the obvious giveaways like the left and right buttons and the scroll wheel stuck between them. The MX Vertical is the computer accessories maker’s first vertical mouse and it is also the company’s most advanced ergonomic mouse born out of science-driven ergonomic design.
Vertical mouse isn’t new, but going through the features of the MX Vertical, it does make you feel as if you’re studying for a Master in Ergonomics. If you are looking to reducing or even eliminating the pain and discomfort associated with using a mouse, the MX Vertical might be it. The mouse is designed with a natural handshake position, vertically angled at 57-degree which Logitech said will “reduce forearm strain and wrist pressure and muscular activity by up to 10 percent” over a traditional mouse. Moreover, it is one size-fits-all, with the mouse capable of being handled by a variety of hand shapes and sizes.
Other highlights include best-in-class 4,000 dpi high-precision sensor (which also helps to further reduce movement and reduced fatigue), on-the-fly cursor speed adjustment, textured rubber surface and thumb rest for enhanced grip that feels natural, and a rechargeable battery that lasts up to four months per charge. The battery here also has a nifty quick charge feature that will get you three hours of use with just a minute charging.
Logitech MX Vertical connects to your computer via three ways: USB-C charging cable, Logitech Unifying Receiver, or Bluetooth, and with Logitech Easy-Switch and Logitech Flow, it will be able to switch between two computers seamlessly, and copy and paste content, images and documents between them.
The Logitech MX Vertical Advanced Ergonomic Mouse is available as we speak on Logitech website, priced at $99.99 a pop. You can learn more about the science behind this advanced mouse in the video after the break.
