The Microsoft Arc Touch Mouse has won Gold at the International Design Excellence Awards 2011.

People today are using mobile computers more than ever, yet they still want comfort and control when using them. The Microsoft Arc Touch Mouse was designed to deliver on that challenge. It goes from flat to curved in one simple movement, so working on the go is easier than ever. At less than 15 millimetres thick at its widest point, it easily slips into a bag, purse or pocket for ultimate portability.

Curve for Comfort; Flatten to Pack

Enjoy stylish, compact comfort and reliable wireless freedom at your fingertips. Curve it comfortably for use. Then smoothly glide your finger up or down the scroll pad to navigate through a page and the Microsoft Arc Touch Mouse responds precisely to the speed of your movement. Use it just about anywhere, even on a rough wood surface or your living room carpet, relying on Microsoft BlueTrack Technology. While giving a presentation or surfing the Internet, roam 9 metres/30 feet away and retain reliable wireless control of your computer. When you pack up and go, you’ll travel in style. Keep the tiny transceiver plugged into your computer’s USB port, or tuck it into the underside of the mouse. Flatten the Arc Touch Mouse to turn it off, and slip it into your pocket or bag as easily as a mobile phone.

"A truly intelligent concept consequently designed and delivered. The team did not stop with executing the arc functionality superbly but also integrated the on/off function with its transformation. The excellent tactile feedback on the scroller function completes a superb product experience in a product category otherwise full of me too products." – Stefan Pannenbecker, VP, Head of Mobile Design
