Thanko Space Mouse Lite

As part of the unveiling of its new online store, Thanko today highlighted its recent Wireless Space Mouse and announced a Lite version designed for portables. Both mice connect to an RF base station and support a unique dual-mode feature: when lifted off a desk and inverted, the Space Mouse automatically converts to a wireless remote for presentations, adjusting the controls so that the owner can steer the mouse by passing a finger over the sensor. A single button on the underside also lets users left-click without flipping the mouse over again, Thanko says. The company says its updated Lite version now has a more compact charging cradle and has a USB port to plug the mouse in for use while its battery is restored. The regular Space Mouse ships for $33; no pricing or availability has been set for the Space Mouse Lite.
