Belkin AeroCruiser Mouse
Custom colors, flying wing design
by Stephen Jones (June 29, 2000)
Mice don't have to be boring, commodity devices, according to Belkin. They've just introduced the AeroCruiserTM mouse line that jazzes up the one doodad you probably spend the most "hands-on" time with.
The 2-button, scroll-wheel mouse resembles a colorful beetle flexing its translucent wings. The bold design sprouts a curved, wing-like palm-rest just below the buttons that arches dramatically over empty space above the body of the mouse.
This design requires a decision from you since each AeroCruiser ships with graphite and grape colored wings to choose between. Or, for $5.99 you can pick up a pack of more fruity colors: blueberry, strawberry, and orange.
Along with this ability to cater to your personal style, the new mice offer useful functions such as one-touch zooming and 8-way scrolling (i.e. adds diagonals). Both features could be real time savers for graphic artists working on large layouts and serious websurfers.
Sure, a mouse is just a mouse. But, Belkin's AeroCruiser gives you a smart, stylish alternative to your typical mousy mouse at an affordable price.
