Logitech Air Mouse or lazy wizard's wand?

I felt a little bit like Harry Potter testing out the Logitech MX Air optical mouse. The mouse tracks normally on the surface, nothing new there except the touch-buttons (back, volume, play/pause--all light up when used) are in the middle of the unit (awkward, but you can get used to it). Once you lift the mouse into the air, you'll feel like a wizard in training with your first power-packing wand. Wave the mouse in any direction, pressing buttons to navigate. Like any student at Hogwarts you'll need practice to get used to it (keep your expectations to about 30 feet), but at worst, you'll turn on the TV instead of your computer;)

The mouse is definitely eye-candy for your desk, its sleek black design will make onlookers wonder "what is that thing?" My favorite feature is the touch panel sensor that takes the place of the traditional scroll wheel. It kind of makes you feel like Apple's "Slide Technology" is this season's new black for tech design. My prediction is that while this is a great new device, its next release will have tighter features that make better use of the real estate. However, if you're a couch potato, this little black toy will let you settle back into the comfort of your couch or bed and listen to music, browse photos, or surf the web without getting up once -- you'll just be waving your arms in the air.

Price: .$142 at Amazon
