What is Laser Mouse?
This is the latest innovation in pointing technology. Moving a step ahead of the optical mouse, which uses normal light, the Laser mouse uses an infrared Laser beam (from a Laser Emitting Diode) to illuminate the surface. A laser sensitive sensor is then used to track changes in the surface. Due to the focussed nature of the laser beam, the Laser mouse can achieve 20 times the sensitivity of the optical mouse, besides being able to detect differences on surfaces that befuddle an optical mouse.
