Media Center PCs are getting pretty common, but ways to control it from your couch aren’t that easy to find. Of course, you can get any wireless keyboard and mouse to allow you to control your PC from your coffee table, but leaning forward is just too much work. Maybe that’s what Logitech thought about when they decided to develop this mouse: something that’ll work on pretty much any surface, like your couch or your pants leg so you don’t have to get up from the couch. That’s where Logitech’s Wireless Mouse M515 comes in. It’s pretty much like any wireless mouse that’ll let you control your PC from several feet away, but this one’s designed to work specifically on soft, textured surfaces, with a smooth, sealed bottom that won’t get snagged or collect lint or fuzz while dragging it over a bed, couch, blanket, pillow, or other soft textured surface.
Since it’s a Logitech mouse, it also comes with a number of the company’s technologies, like Hyper-Fast scrolling, support for the Unifying USB micro receiver, and a hand detection sensor that puts it to sleep when not being used to save on battery power.
It’s due out in Europe this April for around £50. No word on when it hits other markets, but it’s expected to be cheaper when it arrives in the US.
