Logitech Mice With “Darkfield” Lasers

The computer users of stylish offices: Logitech has a mouse for you that works on glass surfaces, so you’ll never have to drag a mouse pad into the living room again. Two new mice have the mysterious “Darkfield” Lasers which enable them to track on glass. This means that you’ll not only be able to work at the dining table, but at that expensive crystal and chrome desk that has sat useless for all these years. Regular laser or optical mice track marks on the surface of the table, but glass is too flat. The new “Darkfield” Lasers inside the mouse look inside the glass for small imperfections, instead of looking straight through. The glass needs to be at least 4mm thick, which really shouldn’t be a problem. If it isn’t 4mm thick it’s probably not safe to use as a table anyway. Both mice also come with Logitech’s tiny set-and-forget USB receiver and weighted spinny-wheel for fast scrolling. The small Logitech Anywhere MX is $80, the bigger Logitech Performance is $100.
