Swiftpoint FutureMouse - Wireless Laptop Mouse

There's a new mouse in town and it's name is SWIFTPOINT, made by FutureMouse. With a full set of features this mouse promises to be a pleasure to work with. The price is about $70, but for everything it offers it sounds like an awesome little item to own. It includes a USB dongle where it docks for storage and charging. A ninety minute charge promises to give you 2-4 weeks of normal use. It also includes a magnetic pad that keeps your mouse in place while you are typing.

Small size, easy to use
The Swiftpoint mouse is ideal for use in small spaces and can be used on your laptop’s palmrest. Left- and right-click buttons and a scroll wheel make the Swiftpoint mouse as easy-to-use as a traditional mouse.
SlideScrollTM - scrolling, zooming and paging
Simply tilt the mouse and slide the scroll wheel along the mousing surface to quickly scroll through documents. You can also use SlideScroll to page through a document or zoom in for a closer look. View a video to see how SlideScroll works.
Micro USB dock for charging and wireless operation
No cables required, the USB dock acts as a wireless receiver for up to 30 feet (10 meters) and charges a docked mouse. The dock secures the mouse to your laptop, so when you move, you only carry one thing.    View a video about USB docking and charging.
Plug-and-play simplicity
No software to install, the Swiftpoint mouse gets you started quickly, on any platform.
Long life battery
A full charge (90 minutes) gives 2-4 weeks of normal use.

Charging a flat battery for only 30 seconds lets you use the mouse for up to an hour.

Battery status indicator
The mouse LED lets you know when it needs charging and when it’s ready to go again.

1000dpi micro optical technology
For precise and accurate operation.

Customizable SmartTouchTM
The SmartTouchTM sensor ensures the mouse’s pointer stops moving when your finger is not detected on the finger grip. This optimizes power consumption and ensures the mouse pointer only moves when you want it to move. View the Parking Accessory video to see how the SmartTouch sensor works.

Customizable ‘up’ direction
Wherever you use the mouse, you can easily change the pointers ‘up’ direction to suit where you’re working. View a video on how to customize the 'up' direction.

Hardware requirements:
USB port

Parking Accessory
A parking accessory comes with every Swiftpoint mouse. This thin adhesive film has a parking area that secures the mouse in place whilst typing. The parked mouse stays out of the way and is close at hand when you need it. You can cut the thin film to suit the size of your laptop. It is easy to apply and remove and won’t leave a sticky residue on your laptop.
The magnet used to park the mouse will not cause any damage to your laptop (view a magnetic force graph).  View a video on how to use the Parking Accessory.
