Motivated by advances in touch-sensing technologies, Surface Computing and multi-touch input support in Windows 7, we have developed a number of prototype mice that consider different physical form-factors and sensing techniques. These devices allow us to do more than point-and-click: they can detect the position of users’ hands and fingers; recognise and react to gestures, and support novel interaction techniques.
