Arc Touch Mouse
Curve for Comfort, Flatten to Pack
Touch Tab with Haptic Feedback
The modern age of touch technology means we can start to move away from the likes of mechanical scroll wheels- which are prone to breaking over time. But this touch technology can feel odd to those who like to feel a response from their actions. With a haptic touch pad, the touch tab will vibrate as you stroke your finger across the surface, and will match the speed of your stroke. It’s modern touch technology, with the natural feel of the older mechanical technology.
Curve for Comfort
Curve this mouse to turn it on for use. When curved for use, this mouse is comfortable for quickly doing what you need to do on your mobile devices. The flexible rubber grip provides extra comfort.
Flatten for Ultimate Portability
When you’ve done what you need to do, flatten the mouse and stow it away. The great thing is that when flat, it’s not just small enough to put in a pocket, but it also turns off, which means the battery lasts longer, and you won’t be accidently clicking things when it is in your pocket or bag.
Flattening the mouse to power it down is only part of the story. This mouse has a handy power status indicator that flashes red when low on power; you will never be caught out with a mouse without power
Navigate your computer by using a BlueTrack Technology mouse on a picnic table, your living room floor, the armrest of a lobby chair, or even your leg. With BlueTrack Technology, you can use the mouse on almost any type of surface
The tiny USB transceiver is stowed on the underside of the Arc Touch mouse by a handy magnet so you can pack the mouse and travel without worry of losing the USB transceiver. Alternatively, it is small enough to just leave in your laptop when on the move.

There are two things that I want to say about this mouse - and those are that it is the weirdest mouse that I have ever held or infact used. The packing is superb (although it seems to have followed Apple with its very very tight boxes). When I finally got into the box, the mouse comes flat. Which confused me allot! NOw i am technically savvy, and it might be that it was 11pm and I was extremely tired when I opened this, however, only when I went onto YouTwit and followed a review did I find out that it was a bendy mouse, which I have to say is a really cool idea!
I have now used the mouse for a good few hours, and as the title would suggest I am getting used to it. The weirdest sensation is the virtual scrolling wheel. It is a completely flat surface, except for the fact that you can treat it as a scrolling wheel. Which in itself is weird... (it even makes the scrolling noise!).
Overall I am happy with this mouse, although to be honest - I was after a wireless mouse for my Desktop and hey, this was the only decent on that Tesco's had. Made the plunge and I am glad that I have :)
The buttons require a slightly firmer press than you may be used to. The scroll wheel is sensitive and replicates the sound of a manual scroll wheel clicking away when you use it. The sound is pleasant enough but, in my opinion, there should be an option to disable for those times when you are working in a quiet environment as it can be distracting for others.
The shape and size of the mouse itself feels smaller than you may be used to, if you have large hands you may struggle to find a comfortable position when you first use the product. I find myself naturally curling my little finger beneath the arch of the mouse which felt odd at first but soon becomes comfortable.
Tracking is very accurate on all surfaces that I have tried so far (real wood, leather, MDF, cardboard and a mouse-mat). This ability to work on 'any' surface really adds to the portability of the mouse as you can set-up anywhere and be confident that the mouse will track straight and true. There is no difference in performance regardless of which surface you use it on.
The wireless dongle plugs into a usb port on your machine and is very small so does not protrude at all really. The bottom of the mouse has a nice magnetic spot where the dongle attaches for travel. I an using both Windows 8 and 7 Professional and in both cases there was no set-up required. The mouse worked perfectly out of the box without having to install any drivers.Read more ›
Conservatively estimating, I would say that it stops working once every 30 minutes (only for a few seconds (10-15), but it just disappears and doesn't react to any movement before all of a sudden coming back to life).
Again conservatively, once a day the scroll strip stops working. This doesn't start working again after a short wait, you have to turn the mouse off and back on to get the scroll working again.
It's great to look at and I can deal with the annoyance of it stopping working occasionally, but I wouldn't use it in front of clients and I wouldn't buy it again or recommend it.
We had one fail after 6months and amazon sent a new replacement which has been fine for over a year now.
A set of Duracell AAA's last 3 months pretty consistently. So that's about £3 a year to run in terms of batteries.
The mouse comes with a wireless nano USB receiver, so you need a spare USB socket on your computer for this to work.
It's not good for gaming because you can't rest your hand as comfortably as an old school wired mouse. But it's fine for general computer use like internet and working.
- The mouse can only be switched off by "snapping" it from its curved to flat position. I sometimes forget so leave it on all night. It really needs an auto switch off to conserve battery power.
- The scroller sometimes malfunctions e.g. is non-responsive or too responsive and the mouse requires switching on and off again
- The material the mouse is made off means that gunk builds up very rapidly, so make sure that your hands are clean before you use it.
Those are the only 3 negatives I can think of at the moment. Otherwise its a great mouse and does its job fairly well. One of the better wireless mice out there.

Easy to carry as it folds flat, looks futuristic but in reality not easy to use for precise control on screen for say, graphic work. Read morePublished 23 days ago by Millie
Nice and flat for carrying. Looks good and attracts attention. Fairly pricey but worth it for me.
Only criticism is of the virtual wheel. Read more
