Microsoft has launched three new special edition mice with an original design. Microsoft tells that these mice were created to help consumers to personalize their desktops.

  "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."

Feelin' Groovy
New Wireless Optical Mouse in Groovy recalls the positive vibes of the '60s, flaunting a dynamic style with a bright orange, pink and red patterned finish. 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.

The mice will be available to consumers for a limited time. These are the estimated retail prices:
Wireless IntelliMouse Explorer in Immersion: $54.95
Wireless IntelliMouse Explorer in Night Vision: $54.95
Wireless Optical Mouse in Groovy: $44.95
