I just got 1 and decided to try it on my pup. You bend it to make it work then straighten it to turn off.

Windows requires 150 mb of disc space to install the drivers.

Its plug n play on puppy 5.7.1. Everything works well.

This thing is cool .... Yes Yes Bill is now 80 bucks richer because of me.

Yes Its just a wireless mouse, other than the fancy look and the bendy bit it has a touch sensor for the scroll.


Arc Touch on Youtube.

Funny thing is when I went to install Microsoft Arc Touch mouse on Windows, Guess what Windows first had to detect it and install the drivers. This was easy as turn on the mouse plug the USB dongle in Windows did the rest in about 2 minutes.

Plugged it into puppy and everything just worked.

Which version or versions of puppy have you tried it with so far? I'd be keen to know if it is common for all puppies to be able to handle this, or just some of them.
