Stealth Touch Mouse announced by Manhattan
Laurence Howe / 5 years ago
Manhattan today unveiled a re-imagined mouse for the tablet generation: Stealth.
With an ultra-sleek , contoured design, Stealth is a Touch Mouse that lets you access and interact with Web content from a PC or Mac with a simple tap or swipe of your finger…no clicking, no scroll wheel, no buttons.
The first two things you will notice about the Stealth are its graceful, slipper shaped body and elegant SilkTouch coating. The body of the Stealth is ergonomically engineered to eliminate wrist strain and position your fingers for optimal use while surfing the Web, checking Facebook or just about anything else. Meanwhile, the SilkTouch coating gives the Stealth a very sophisticated, upscale look and lets your fingers to slide gently along the mouse’s curved surface.
Simplicity was our goal in designing the Stealth, and that meant eliminating all buttons and mechanical controls. The front control area of the Stealth is set-up to allow completely intuitive Web browsing, and an experience much more akin to using a tablet or smartphone than a traditional mouse. Left click and right click functions are still there, but is accomplished with a delicate tap of your finger, as opposed to a noisy, heavy-handed “click”. A simple slide your finger over the center of the the Stealth results in smooth, super-responsive scrolling of Web pages and other online content. The high-resolution laser detects even the subtlest of hand movements for precision control, and specially coated feet allow the mouse to glide almost frictionlessly across your desktop or mouse pad. All this adds up to a mouse whose functionality is as simple and unique as it looks.
The Manhattan Stealth Touch Mouse can be used with either a PC or a Mac, and is plug-and-play ready right out of the box so there are no drivers or software to install. It comes with a wireless 2.4 GHz nano USB transceiver for connecting to your computer and requires two AAA batteries for operation. The Stealth will be available in North America and Europe this May, and will carry a MSRP of $69.99US.
