Seamless Multi-Touch Surface

Magic Mouse — with its low-profile design and seamless top shell — is so sleek and dramatically different, it brings a whole new feel to the way you get around on your Mac. You can’t help but marvel at its smooth, buttonless appearance. Then you touch it and instantly appreciate how good it feels in your hand. But it’s when you start using Magic Mouse that everything comes together.
The Multi-Touch area covers the top surface of Magic Mouse, and the mouse itself is the button. Scroll in any direction with one finger, swipe through web pages and photos with two, and click and double-click anywhere. Inside Magic Mouse is a chip that tells it exactly what you want to do. Which means Magic Mouse won’t confuse a scroll with a swipe. It even knows when you’re just resting your hand on it.
Laser-Tracking Engine

Magic Mouse uses powerful laser tracking that’s far more sensitive and responsive on more surfaces than traditional optical tracking. That means it tracks with precision on nearly every surface — whether it’s a table at your favorite cafe or the desk in your home office — without the need for a mousepad.

Wireless


Magic Mouse connects wirelessly to your Mac via Bluetooth, so there’s no wire or separate adapter to worry about. Pair Magic Mouse with your Bluetooth-enabled Mac and enjoy a reliable and secure connection up to 33 feet away. When you combine Magic Mouse with the Apple Wireless Keyboard, you create a workspace free of annoying cables.
And because Magic Mouse is wireless, it can venture beyond the confines of your desk. A quick flick of the on/off switch helps conserve battery power while Magic Mouse is tucked in your bag. Even when it’s on, Magic Mouse manages power efficiently, by detecting periods of inactivity automatically.


Make one great gesture after another.

Multi-Touch technology on the iPhone and iPod touch introduced a breakthrough way to interact with your content. Magic Mouse, with its Multi-Touch surface, does the same thing for your Mac. When you use gestures, it’s as if you’re touching what’s on your screen. For instance, swiping through web pages in Safari gives you the feeling of flicking through pages in a magazine. And scrolling with Magic Mouse isn’t your everyday scrolling. It supports momentum scrolling (similar to iPhone and iPod touch), where the scrolling speed is dictated by how fast or slowly you perform the gesture.

brief hands on from cnet says that they are pleased with the gestures and that they need to get more hands on to know how good this is.

I am impressed by looking at the video available in Apple's site. :)

Isn't Apple just making usability tough? Clicking on a button in mouse to click somewhere, right click on 2nd button for something is easier & universally acceptable & known. Who r u going to teach all these new gestures?

I can say my friends calling me some day saying "Dude, I am trying to scroll the webpage using magic mouse, its not working. How many fingers should I use?" :D

things that are universally acceptable & known gave way to new and unknown things.

yes. having no buttons is difficult but I think this should be once you get used to it.

thanks for the links guys. Mouse needed a step up in design and usability and this could likely be the one. :)

cmon saurav its not about that matter of universally acceptance or blah blah
was it similar in windows first released ?
innovations like these are that change the world
this could be the best alternative to touch screens(though i dont think so)
like u could actually get feel of touch screen

Interesting. But since it is made by Apple, that makes it Uber Cool. :p :D

Anyway this mouse would suck for gaming.

This seems similar to mouse gestures (strokeit)

once you learn and get used to mouse gestures, they are a far far FARRR better way than clicking. It should be compulsory for every geek to use mouse gestures (download strokeit if using windows)
However, gestures are probably a geek thing , not for 'normal' newbies .

Now that's some innovation and design! The mouse looks sexy and I guess it works that way too:D
Believe me I've used the multi-touch track pad and this magic mouse is no different. You get used to it in a matter of hours.

^^this mouse is now shipped as default mouse with all imacs and it costs 69$, which is a good price considering the functionality and laser tracking.
 
I was going to buy Apple Mighty Mouse till I demoed it at an iStore. It sucked big time, and weighed what my whole keyboard currently does. Using it felt like moving a brick around.

Does the Apple Magic Mouse remove the weight cripple ?
