|"People want their personal spaces to reflect their individual styles," said Ken Fry, industrial design group director for Microsoft Hardware. "The days of boring beige are over. Our new special-edition mice illustrate our approach to providing consumers with the latest technical innovations combined with world-class design, offering products that give people an exciting new way to express their personality."

Designed to express a bold and playful personality, Groovy isn't resting on its looks alone. The product also delivers ambidextrous comfort and high-performance features, including Tilt Wheel Technology for smooth horizontal and vertical scrolling capabilities as well as enhanced Microsoft® Optical Technology for accurate tracking and longer battery life. With Microsoft Wireless Optical Mouse in Groovy, consumers can turn on, log in and click with a radical new desktop style.
Getting Immersed or Going Digital
Wireless IntelliMouse® Explorer also comes in two new special-edition finishes, Immersion and Night Vision. Featuring a fluid graphic of blues and purples, Immersion expresses subtle style with creative depth, drawing inspiration from the cool hues of water rippling across the surface of a pool. With a green and black digitized pattern, Night Vision evokes a futuristic image reminiscent of sci-fi fantasy.
All these mice deliver a scroll wheel with the Tilt Wheel Technology, five programmable buttons and also an enhanced wireless optical technology which is claimed to deliver a battery life of more than six months.
