These mice will track on everything from a granite countertop to the carpet in an airport terminal.
Love your laptop computer but hate using the trackpad when you are out of range of a traditional desk? Now, you can use a mouse on more surfaces than ever before, with Microsoft BlueTrack Technology.1
Exciting, exceptional accuracy
Use a mouse with BlueTrack Technology that outperforms laser and optical mice. The large, blue beam combined with an image sensor and pixel geometry designed by Microsoft, generates a high-contrast picture of the surface that allows exceptional tracking accuracy.
Track on just about anything
Navigate your computer by using a BlueTrack Technology mouse on a picnic table, your living room floor, the armrest of a lobby chair, or even your pant leg. With BlueTrack Technology, you can use the mouse on almost any type of surface.
See that blue light coming from under the mouse? The BlueTrack Technology light beam is more than four times larger than the average laser beam used in other laser mice, so you can point, click, and scroll with precision, no matter where you are.
Why You Need AES (Advance Encryption Standard)In today’s mobile world, wireless technology is everywhere. We use it to get online on the go, connect mobile accessories to our PCs, listen to music from our phone—and the list goes on. Because wireless technology is so common, we often assume it’s safe. Many of us use it to enter passwords, send personal data, and share confidential work information. The reality is that every point in a wireless communication system is a potential vulnerability, and without the proper security measures in place, your private information could be at risk.At Microsoft, we have created a line of wireless keyboards that help protect your communications using the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES). AES encrypts your keystrokes before transmitting them to your PC or other device.This FAQ can help you understand what AES is, why you need it, and the additional measures Microsoft has taken to keep your sensitive information safe.What is AES?The Advanced Encryption Standard is a specification for the encryption of electronic data. Established by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) in 2001, it has been adopted by the United States government and other countries around the world to protect confidential data and information.Why do I need AES for a keyboard?Wireless keyboards transmit information over the air, which creates an often overlooked point of vulnerability. Without proper security measures in place, a cyber-thief could intercept your keystrokes and gain access to you passwords, credit card numbers, and other vital information.What additional features help keep AES keyboards secure?To prevent others from accessing your keyboard’s secret AES encryption key, we have created firmware that blocks access to the key once it is installed in the keyboard and receiver in the factory. In addition, Microsoft AES keyboards use random data generation and unique identifiers for each transmission to prevent more sophisticated attacks.If I use an AES keyboard, is my private and confidential information 100% safe?AES is among the most secure electronic data encryption standards in use today. There are however, no guarantees when it comes to security. We recommend that you stay informed about threats, use strong passwords, and keep your systems and security software up to date.
