ELECOM to release 3-button wireless optical mouse and

two 5-button wireless laser mice


In late July, ELECOM CO., LTD. (Head office: Chuo-ku, Osaka; President: Junji Hada) will release a 3-button wireless optical mouse and two 5-button wireless laser mice. This is the third in a series of products developed in collaboration with the Japanese design office nendo, based in Tokyo and Milan, which is active in a wide variety of design fields.

This is the third release of attractive design models developed in collaboration between ELECOM, which focuses on function and design, and design office nendo. Established in 2002 by Mr. Oki Sato and others, nendo has received numerous design awards and plays an active role globally in many design fields. Newsweek magazine named Mr. Sato one of the "100 Most Respected Japanese" and selected the office as one of the "Top 100 Small Japanese Companies." These are only a few examples showing how highly nendo is regarded around the world.

As the third in a series of products developed with the nendo design office, ELECOM will release three types of wireless mice, the "oppopet" 3-button wireless optical mouse as well as the "KASANE" and "ORIME" 5-button wireless laser mice.
The oppopet is a 3-button mouse with a receiver uniquely designed with an image of an animal's tail. When carrying around and using this model, you will be comforted as if you were spending time with your own little pet.
KASANE is a 5-button mouse with a unique design: the side buttons and right and left click buttons are arranged with an image of randomly overlapping paper on a desk. The design is perfected when a hand is placed over the mouse.
ORIME is a 5-button mouse comprising only flat surfaces, while mice are usually made of several curved surfaces. The appearance of the ORIME mouse has been designed with an image of carefully creased paper to provide a comfortable grip feel. The mouse will give you a unique impression as if you were looking at a digitally processed image, or a low-resolution CG image popping up from the screen.

All series incorporate a highly reliable wireless radio system operating in the 2.4 GHz band, to ensure accurate mouse operation within a radio wave range of approx. 10 m max. above non-magnetic materials, and approx. 3 m max. above magnetic materials, such as a steel desk. Using only AAA batteries, these series have a power switch on the back of the main body that helps cut battery consumption when not in use. The 5-button KASANE and ORIME mice are high-performance models equipped with a micro-receiver and tilt wheel.
ELECOM plans to release more products developed with the renowned design office nendo. Please look for further information on these exciting products.
