Designed keeping in view User convenience without the bulkiness. A mechanism designed that goes from flat to bent , back to flat repeatedly

Some of its features includes-

  • Curves for comfort , fits the hand nicely while working and  flattens to store in the bag or your pocket. And it has another function also , Curve to turn ON. Flatten to turn OFF. No button to switch. A green light flashes to show the battery is working, and then turns off to save battery life.
  • No scroll wheel instead a touch strip is provided, which simulates feeling of scrolling experience without traditional wheel. You can scroll fast or slow, flick it for hyperfast scroll, tap the top or bottom region for Pg Up and Pg Down.  So its ‘Click. Tap. Flick. Control’ for better Productivity. You can feel the scroll with vibration feedback. ‘Includes haptics, so you can actually feel (and hear) the page scrolling.’
  • BlueTrack Technology - works on any surface like cement, rough table, uneven wood, marble tabletop or any reflective surface
  • Nano Transceiver- snaps into the bottom of the mouse.
