With today’s portability of electronics, people may be trading in their office chairs and desks for more comfortable surroundings more frequently. Perhaps in the traditional popularity of over-stuffed chairs and couches in coffeeshops, people who use their laptops at home are opting for the comforts of their own living room seating, at least enough are to warrant Logitech’s creation of the first Couch Mouse M515, which is completely optimized for soft surfaces, such as couches, beds or carpets. Now you can immediately go from watching your favorite movie on your flat-screen TV in front of your TV lift cabinet to pulling out your laptop and surfing the Internet without being bound to use the small, awkward finger pad present on most laptops. Logitech has made it possible to surf, shop and socialize with ease.

Now if you’re a real traditionalist and don’t like the idea of burning through batteries to have a wireless device, Logitech claims that the mouse will run for two years before needing a battery change. And to eliminate the need for smoothing out soft, bumpy surfaces, what makes the M515 mouse unique is the ability to spin through web pages with a finger-controlled roller-wheel on the top of the mouse.

The mouse works through a USB port on Windows-based PCs and Mac® computers. It comes complete with a 3-year limited hardware warranty, two AA batteries, a Logitech Unifying receiver and user documentation, all for around $50 USD.

The other nice part of this mouse is that it is only active when you are gripping it, so your cursor won’t move around on its own when you shift on your bed or couch. It also had a sealed bottom to prevent fuzz and fabric from getting inside through the sensor opening. Operating with a 2.4 GHz wireless speed, you won’t experience any lag time, delays or dropouts. Its hyper-fast scrolling allows you to burn through long blog posts, Twitter updates and Facebook feeds as fast as the eye can read. You can also switch the mouse to a click-to-click mode and scroll through photo albums and emails one at a time.
