Logitech has just announced a new type of mouse that is as small as large pencil eraser, has no cables and can act as a perfect remote controller for presenters needing to manage the flow of their slides during a live event.
In fact, as the Cube is lifted from any surface on which it was resting, it auto-swtiches to "remote control presentation mode" allowing you to progress through your slide deck with a simple scrolling movement of your finger on it.
The tiny Logitech Unifying® receiver connects up to six Unifying-compatible devices with a powerful, reliable wireless connection (up to 25 meters). So the Cube works with your other Logitech Unifying devices without taking up another USB port.
Check this video introduction showing how the Cube works: http://youtu.be/AeucWS1Ph4E

The Cube will be on sale this January for $69.99
