From ASUS comes VivoMouse, the “world’s first” combination of a touchpad and mouse. ASUS is a busy bee and has been unveiling products at a rate of knots at this weeks Computex 2013 in Taipei.
So about the world first wireless mouse, it comes with an integrated multi-touch touchpad and provides “full desktop and handheld control.” It can be used in two ways: as a default optical mouse and as a Windows 8-compatible touchpad with multi-touch capabilities. ASUS also says that it’s the ideal control for the living room PC, which is ideally the VivoPC. The VivoMouse is launched alongside the VivoPC, a compact PC designed to be used as an all-in-one entertainment system reports Geeky Gadgets. Both the VivoMouse and VivoPC will be available Q3 2013.
ASUS is onto something special here. There’s been no mention yet of a price of either the VivoMouse or the VivoPC, but what we have here is ASUS stab at the home entertainment market, a space that Microsoft’s Xbox One is desperate to own. Will the VivoMouse have air-based gestures akin to the Wii remote, or will it be a basic controller for VivoPC? We’ll have to wait until July-September 2013 to find out.
