Asus VivoMouse a Multi-Touch Trackpad with a difference

Asus has launched the VivoMouse, a wireless mouse which doubles as a multi-touch trackpad — the first of its kind, claims Asus

The futuristic-looking device is not the first to try to reinvent the mouse, but it also functions as a wireless remote, making it quite a versatile little thing. The circular trackpad supports Windows 8 multi-touch gestures such as pinch to zoom, rotate and Start menu toggle

All these characteristics make it especially good for one-handed control when you’re away from the computer, Asus says. If you’re looking for a device to control your living room media PC, the VivoMouse might turn out to be a good choice.

It sports 802.11ac Wi-Fi for HD video streaming and Asus’ SonicMaster audio technology, which brings “incredible” sound quality with external speakers.
