Microsoft Hardware sent news of a refresh of its Limited Edition Artist Series of mice, part of the Wireless Mobile Mouse 3500 collection (opens in new tab). The company's fashionable line of hardware now features six new designs for your clicking pleasure, ranging from paisley to red and purple stripes to yellow flowers on green.
In this round, featured artists include Dana McClure, Deanne Cheuk, Kustaa Saksi, Matt Lyon, Joy Deangdeelert Choand Si Scott. Each design demonstrates the artist’s personality and artistic approach, which helps "liven up any workspace". The designs are also signed by the artist, making for an interesting conversation piece (if anyone asks, that is).
"Not only does the Limited Edition Artist Mouse Series allow you to express your personality, it’s also ideal for productivity," the company said. "It features a battery life of up to eight months, and its 2.4 GHz wireless technology and BlueTrack Technology let you work, browse and play from virtually anywhere."
According to the specs, the mice are dynamically adaptable to 8000 frames per second. They also have a tracking speed of 1000 points per inch, and a max acceleration speed of up to 72 inches. Only three buttons are provided including the scrolling wheel, making these artsy mice more ideal for typical uses like web browsing and document edition.
The new mice also feature an ambidextrous design so that they'll work in any hand (lefties tend to get left out). Included is a plug-and-go nano transceiver that doesn't stick out when jammed into a laptop or desktop's USB 2.0 port, and can be stored within the mouse itself when travelling. All six retail for $29.95 each though Microsoft's online store, compatible with Windows 8 to Windows XP 32-bit (not 64-bit) and Mac.
