Remote control for virtualized desktops

Logitech has introduced a couple of mice it claims will work as well on a glass-topped table as it will on a rather less shiny one.

Logitech Anywhere Mouse MX

Logitech's Anywhere Mouse MX: works on glass

The mouse maker calls the underlying technology Darkfield Laser Tracking and it's good for any high-gloss surface and clear glass - although the glass must be at least 4mm thick.

Darkfield will initially be implemented in a pair of rodents: the Anywhere Mouse MX and the Performance Mouse MX, which go on sale this month for $80 (£48/€57) and $100 (£60/€71), respectively.

Performance Mouse MX: gamer friendly

Both are cordless, using Logitech's own 2.4GHz wireless tech and one of its tiny USB adaptors that are small enough to leave in your laptop. The Anywhere runs off two AA batteries - its sibling has a built-in battery that can be recharged using the bundled USB cable. ®
