Well, It looks like Microsoft has done it again. The latest creation coming from Redmond is not like the rest - it is a completely new advance in technology. In the last five to ten years, how often have you changed or upgraded your monitor, CPU, printer, etc. but kept the silly old white mouse? Not only does this mouse have a new stylish look, but also works different as well. IntelliMouse Explorer is Microsoft's most advanced mouse. IntelliMouse Explorer combines the accuracy and reliability of Microsoft IntelliEye optical tracking technology, the convenience of two customizable function buttons, the efficiency of the scrolling wheel, and the comfort of expert ergonomic design. 

Microsoft IntelliMouse Explorer Features:

  • IntelliEye Technology - provides unsurpassed accuracy over time by replacing mouse-ball technology with an optical sensor and digital signal processor (DSP). The sensor snaps pictures of the work surface at a rate of 1,500 images per second and then translates changes between the images into onscreen movements. This technique, called image correlation processing, results in smooth, precise pointer movement. 
  • The scrolling and zooming wheel lets users enjoy universal scrolling in their favorite applications directly from their mouse without having to use scrollbars. Users can zoom without using toolbars or menus.
  • Two new customizable function buttons provide effortless Internet navigation with their forward and back default settings. The buttons, located on theleft side of the mouse, can also easily be mapped to execute useful program shortcut commands, like print or cut and paste.
  • Precision over time - With the new IntelliEye technology, there are no more mechanical parts to become worn or dirty!
  • A proven ergonomic design allows users to align their hand and forearm in a natural, relaxed position on the mouse. The shape of the IntelliMouse Explorer supports the entire hand and fingers, while the slope helps keep the hand and forearm aligned naturally.
  • The IntelliMouse Featuring IntelliEye comes with a limited lifetime warranty.
