Logitech Cube Mouse Looks More Like a Pack of Smokes than a Mouse

by Paul Strauss

It might not look like a normal computer mouse, nor does it look like a cube, but Logitech’s just-revealed Cube is a pocket-sized controller which works as both a pointing device for your computer and a presentation device in one.


When placed on your desk, the wireless Cube controller lets you control your cursor much like you would your smartphone’s touchscreen. They don’t describe it as a multitouch trackpad, though it sounds sort of like one to me. When you get up to give a presentation, just lift the Cube up off of your desktop, and it switches into presentation mode.


In this mode, it appears to use a motion sensor to determine which direction you want to navigate in your presentation. Clicking the top of the Cube advances slides, while flipping the mouse over goes back a slide. Keep in mind that it doesn’t function as pointer once you lift it from the desk like some of they gyroscopic mice out there, it only navigates between slides.


The Cube is compatible with both PCs and Macs too, and connects using their tiny, proprietary USB Unifying Receiver technology. The Logitech Cube will be available in both black and white, and is expected to be released sometime this month, and will retail for $69.99 (USD).

    Am I the only person thinking “Chalkboard Eraser”?

    Its actually a pretty good design and hopefully some of that bulk translates to ruggedness. It could be excellent in a classroom.

    The proportions are shown but the actual dimensions aren’t so obvious.

    Hopefully some hungry person doesn’t think its an ice cream sandwich. :-)

    I should get one for when I’m in the classroom.

    So we should stop thinking chalk eraser and start thinking Hot-Wheels or Matchbox Car. :-) Thanks for the clarification.
