With the announcement of the Microsoft Touch Mouse way back in January at the Consumer Electronic Show there hasn’t been a whole lot of news since then for developers to sink their teeth into, let alone put their hands to work. Well, it has now been annouced that the Microsoft Touch Mouse is available for pre-order from select major stores for only $79.95 (although we have seen it for as low as $64.99). This thing of beauty is set to land August 15th, 2011 (subject to change) and looks to rival the Magic Mouse that Apple provides its customers. The neat thing about this mouse is that it is set to have its own SDK which will allow developers to extend the use of the mouse past its already awesome looking functionality. The possibilities are virtually endless when a developer puts his mind to something.
Below is a brief clip of how the Touch Mouse came to be from “Mouse 2.0”:
We at Binary Wasteland want to get a hold of one of these bad boys and the SDK and see if we can get a tutorial to show the readers something basic and move to coding something a little more advanced so we can see some awesome applications right when the mouse launches. If anyone has any ideas for applications to be developed, leave them in the comments below as they will all be considered. We look forward to your comments and suggestions on where the mouse and SDK for it could take our computer experience. Until next article, Happy Hacking.
