Microsoft announced the availability of the Artist Edition Touch Mouse on Tuesday.
The latest edition to the Microsoft Mouse family sees a funky new look to Microsoft’s new Touch Mouse for Windows 7. The mouse is identical to the Touch Mouse but features illustrative typography across the top of the device. Microsoft teamed up with New York-based artist Deanne Cheuk to create the limited edition mouse. The device is etched with a calligraphy-like motif that is designed to represent a persons tracing motion over the Touch Mouse.
“We wanted to release a limited-edition graphic for the Touch Mouse that spoke to the beautiful motion,” explained Microsoft’s user experience designer Lindsey Kujawski in a blog post on Tuesday. “We knew just the artist that could bring that to life,” she adds. “Deanne worked to integrate circuit boards and symmetry in her line work design. The result is the new Touch Mouse Artist Edition pattern.”
The Touch Mouse Artist Edition is available immediately in the United States priced at $79.95.
