Microsoft gets arty with its Touch Mouse
Friday 26 August 2011
The Microsoft Hardware Industrial Design division has put the final touches on an artist edition of its Touch Mouse.
The limited edition mouse features a design created by New York-based artist Deanne Cheuk. The Touch Mouse Artist Edition pattern embodies motion and the sensation of touch while also evoking the images of integrated circuit boards and symmetry.
"We were captivated by the fluid, rhythmic patterns of people using the Microsoft Touch Mouse. Their finger paths and hand movements beautifully flowed in an organic nature — it was like watching an orchestral conductor — so we wanted to release a limited-edition graphic for the Touch Mouse that spoke to the beautiful motion, and we knew just the artist that could bring that to life," said Microsoft user experience designer Lindsey Kujawski.
Looking to make an artwork out of your computer too? Dell offers art-inspired gadget design personalization through its http://www.dell.com/art Design Studio website too.
The Microsoft Touch Mouse Artist Edition mouse will be available "soon" for $79.95.
