The Explorer Touch Mouse's BlueTrack technology combines the best of both laser and optical mouse technologies, resulting in greater precision and sensitivity on nearly any surface. Its touch strip allows the Explorer Touch Mouse to offer one touch scrolling and navigation reminiscent of smartphone touchscreens for greater ease of use and fewer moving parts than standard scroll mice. Meanwhile, the Explorer Touch Mouse's Plug-And-Go Nano Receiver is extremely small, allowing it to be left in laptop USB ports without worry. The Microsoft Explorer Touch Mouse is available in black, grey and red.
