Genius, based in Taiwan, has announced the world's first Opto Mouse. What makes it unique is that it features a 1600 dpi touch sensor, replacing the scroll with a touch scroll panel, which allows the user to perform "multidirectional scrolling"
"The most revolutionary function of Genius Traveler 355 Laser is that, one can browse the Internet or documents more efficiently by just touching the OptoWheel (the blue eye)."
Moving the OptoWheel slightly, the "turbo-scrolling" function will let you scroll forward or backward at a rapid speed (up to one hundred pages per second).
The Traveler 355 shall be available in about a month which will be compatible with Windows Vista, XP, 2003, 2000 as well as Mac OS X.
