This week, we’re at the enormous tech tradeshow CES 2016 in Las Vegas, bringing you the latest, coolest and most exciting new technology straight from the show floor. Find out more here, and see what we’ve covered so far here.
Lenovo is pretty well known for its line of super-bendy Yoga laptops – and they now have a foldable mouse to join their ranks. It’s their first Yoga-branded accessory, and transforms from flat for storage to a sort of downward dog position to use as a mouse. It’s a simple twisting motion – but what makes it cooler is that in its flat position, it becomes a touchscreen remote control:
You can use the remote to control music and media, and if you touch the middle button on the mouse side, it becomes a work remote control for moving through slides in a presentation:
Two hours of charging gives you a month’s use, and it even comes in a range of colours (including a fairly eye-catching orange, to go with their laptops).
The Lenovo Yoga Mouse is a ridiculously well-thought-out product, and as such is pretty good value at $69 (about £47, but UK pricing hasn’t been confirmed yet). It’ll be out globally, including the UK, at the end of January. We’d give you a link but it doesn’t seem to be on the Lenovo site yet. We’re just too ahead of the curve.
