That's not the only change, mind, though the extent to which your fingers will be happy will depend on how well you got on with the old designs.

Logitech MX Master Review – The ambitious mouse

Turns out, mouse design is a serious business. Logitech has spent several years designing its new flagship peripheral, the MX Master, capable of embracing not just one but three of your computers, and even coaxing loyal trackpad users back into the fold. It also sees the return of one of Logitech's more contentious features, a slick scroll wheel with some fancy friction. I pushed my Magic Trackpad to one side to give the MX Master the chance to win me over; read on for the full review.

ODiN Aurora mouse projects a laser trackpad onto surfaces

ODiN Aurora mouse projects a laser trackpad onto surfaces

ODiN is a mouse that functions like a trackpad, only it uses projected lasers rather than traditional hardware. The design, upon first glance, appears to be a Transformer, but it's not -- it's the Norse god of war, and the projected image includes a laser spear to drive that theme home. The mouse works by sitting on a desk and projecting a "trackpad" onto the surface in which the user can control their computer's cursor. More details after the jump!
