Bend-and-Snap Mouse!

It’s no wonder this design was a 2011 red dot product design Best of the Best winner. A mere 15 mm thick, and composed primarily of flexible silicon, the Microsoft Arc Touch Mouse was designed for on-the-go users, and can fold flat when not in use, making it effortlessly portable while achieving necessary ergonomics. Other innovative features include a touch sensitive scroll function, and a blue light tracking system that allows it to scroll on a broad range of surfaces. 

Designers: Donn Koh with One & Co. Design Inc, San Francisco, and Microsoft Industrial Design Team

    I have the predecessor to this. It’s one of the few attractive, solid designs out of Microsoft. This has the potential to be my new travel mouse. Very nice.

    Cheers,

    I’m not a apple fanboy, but IMHO,
    OSX with Multi-Touch trackpad is way better for normal apps
    (except for professional apps such as CAD and CAE which require irregular way of control like right-button drag and the like).

    Since I changed my laptop to mac, I never carry around my travel mouse.
