Logitech and Adobe today announced a collaboration to provide creative professionals and design enthusiasts new levels of control when using Adobe Creative Suite 2 (CS2) and standalone CS2 applications: the NuLOOQ Professional Series. The new Logitech product line comprises the NuLOOQ navigator, a device used in conjunction with a mouse and a keyboard to manipulate images and documents, and the NuLOOQ tooldial, customizable on-demand interface software that provides quick access to design tools. Both are designed for use with the Mac versions of Adobe Creative Suite 2, Adobe Illustrator CS2, Adobe InDesign CS2, and Adobe Photoshop CS2.
Approximately the size and shape of half a tennis ball, the stationary NuLOOQ tooldial device sits under the non-mousing hand and has a circular touch-sensitive surface (the tooltuner dial) for adjusting option values in supported applications. A moveable rubber-like ring (the navring controller) at the base allows designers to easily navigate images and documents, while embedded buttons (triggerpoint buttons) call up frequently used tools. The NuLOOQ Pro Series costs $150 and will be available in March-- the NuLOOQ tooldial can be purchased separately for $50.
