It seems that Logitech may have taken a page from the Portal game series, as they develop their own version of a companion cube. Instead of laying a box on switches that must weigh quite a bit, Logitech went the complete opposite direction with their concept of a Cube. As I mentioned in the title, this is not only the smallest mouse I have ever seen, but it is the smallest product I have ever had the pleasure of using and bringing forward to my readers.
The idea here it to make a mouse that is small enough to fit in your pocket, but even more thought went into this design. Everything that we typically consider basic features of a mouse, such as the left click being on the left, or the right click being on the right, or better yet, a scroll wheel that isn't a wheel at all! The way Logitech went about things here will stand your previous notions of what makes a cool mouse, crumble it all up and throw it in the waste bin. I will be honest; there is more of a business market feel to this new mouse. I used it for a few days and while odd at first, it easily becomes second nature in no time at all, but there are features like its presentation mode that makes you realize that most of us don't have that concern.
Even with the Logitech Cube Grab-and-Go mouse lending its features to the more business minded who would carry the laptop under one arm, their coffee in the other and with this tiny design, you can now slip this mouse slash pointer into a protective sleeve and stash it in your pocket as you walk to the next meeting.
Even for those of us who don't like the keel of a mouse pad on out laptops for even the most basic of internet surfing, you now have those same abilities, even if the beverage of choice to your next meeting is a beer before you meet up with your buddies. While I was at CES, the news of this mouse was a black on white version. Today I am bringing you the Logitech Cube in very sleek, white striped panels over black trimmed edges.
