Microsoft announced on Wednesday that it plans to introduce Dragon designed Mice to celebrate Chinese New Year.
Microsoft will release three new limited edition mice designed for the year of the dragon. The Wireless Mobile Mouse 3500 Year of the Dragon will be made available in red and gold colors. The two colors are symbolic in Chinese culture. Red symbolises good fortune and joy and gold symbolises wealth and happiness. “The intricate dragon design was created by premier artist Nod Young,” explained Microsoft’s hardware team in a blog post on Wednesday. “Nod used inspirations from the famous Nine-Dragon Wall of Beihai Park, a royal garden in China, and Dragon Ball.”
The third mouse is the Arc Touch Mouse year of the dragon. The design includes a crouching dragon and was created by Lin Xu Pan, who included a five-finger claw dragon in his design. “Each mouse also includes the signature of the featured artist on the mouse so you’ll have a real piece of artwork in the palm of your hand,” says Microsoft’s hardware team.
The Wireless Mobile Mouse 3500 Year of the Dragon is available now for $34.95 and the Arc Touch Mouse Year of the Dragon will be available soon for $69.95.
