    Once again redefining the way we interact with the digital world, today Logitech unveiled the Logitech Cube. With a unique design that re-imagines what a mouse can be, the Logitech Cube offers everything you want in a mouse, and effortlessly becomes a presenter when you need it.

    When used as a mouse, the Logitech Cube scrolls when you swipe your finger along the main panel, thanks to Logitech's Flow Scroll software that delivers a smooth scrolling experience similar to your favorite touchscreen smartphone.

    "With its sleek design, the Logitech Cube catches your eye immediately," said Todd Walker, brand manager at Logitech. "But it doesn't stop with distinctive design. The Cube has just the right set of features, whether you're working through an international flight or making a critical presentation – all in a beautiful tiny package."

    To use the Logitech Cube as a presenter, all you need to do is lift it in the air and moments later it's in presenter mode. Clicking the top of the mouse advances to the next slide, and if you need to go back simply turn the mouse over in your hand and click again.

    And, this pocket-perfect mouse travels light, so whether you're traveling from your desk to the conference room or taking your computer from the living room to the kitchen you can easily carry your mouse with you wherever you go.

    The Logitech Cube also comes with the tiny Logitech Unifying receiver, featuring Logitech Advanced 2.4 GHz connectivity and a small-enough form factor to stay plugged into your computer when you move around. This gives you the reliability of a cord with the convenience of wireless, along with the option to connect up to six compatible devices. Add a keyboard or a number pad, or even another mouse, without the hassle of multiple USB receivers.

    The Logitech Cube has been named an International CES Innovations 2012 Design and Engineering Awards Honoree in the Computer Peripherals product category and will be featured in the Innovations Design and Engineering Showcase at the 2012 International CES, which runs Jan. 10-13, 2012 in Las Vegas, Nev.

    The Logitech Cube is expected to be available in the U.S. and Europe beginning in January 2012. It will be available online only at www.logitech.com for a suggested retail price of $69.99.

    A real picture rather than concept art might have been helpful. And a demonstration in real world use, esp. with respect to scale/size and how mouse clicks are done... on the top or on the side.

    ONCE AGAIN, marketing "geniuses" spouting off again on products they themselves haven't seen or used!

    I think the "soap bar" mouse could be work if the ergonomics and touch surfaces were properly implemented.

    Not really, as you still have to move it around as a mouse on a desk to make the cursor move as far as I can tell...
    Hence the sensor at the bottom.

    It's like a touchscreen smartphone thing - you just move your finger along the surface.

    Perhaps we can get used to it as we got used to the mouse when it was introduced.
