Asus has announced one of world's smallest notebook mice: the Asus MS-71 Ultra-Mini Wireless Mouse. This product looks a lot like a USB stick but features a 800 dpi sensor, 2.4GHz RF receiver and a small scroll wheel.

According to Asus this mini mouse works at distances of over 30 meter and they also claim the mouse requires just 3 minutes of recharging to work for up to 1 day's worth of operating usage time.
World's Smallest 2.4GHz Wireless Mouse
With dimensions of only 65.8mm (L), 25.1mm (W) and 17.5mm (H), the ASUS MS-71 is often called the “1-finger mouse”, and provides users with a compact pointing solution that is perfect for use together with small notebook computers like the Eee PC. Providing 800 dpi of resolution, it is able to provide sharp and responsive tracking for precise cursor movements; while the 2.4 GHz RF receiver provides users with wireless capabilities of more than 30m.

Exclusive Power Management for 75% Energy Savings
The MS-71 is also equipped with intelligent power management capabilities, and when left idle is able to automatically enter a power saving mode – providing up to 75% power savings! This helps users conserve energy, reducing energy costs and helping to save the environment at the same time.

User Convenient Features
With a whole range of extra features, the MS-71 is extraordinarily easy and convenient to use. With just 3 minutes of quick charging time, users can enjoy up to 1 day’s worth of operating usage time! What’s more, with an embedded protective IC for extensive overcharging voltage protection, users can rest easy that the MS-71 will never run the risk of overcharging; while the detachable USB receiver dongle with quick-charging dock provides easy portability and great convenience for charging on the go.
