Microsoft Touch Mouse Announced, Available in June [Video]

While it may look similar, the Touch Mouse isn't the same thing as the previously released Arc Touch Mouse from Microsoft. This time around, the Touch Mouse is meant to look more like a traditional mouse peripheral, but the distinction between a "normal" mouse and this one is pretty clear right off the top: there's a "matrix of capacitive touch-sensing electrodes" right on the top, allowing for several different multitouch gestures.
