This summer ASUS announced two new devices that bring innovative design to home entertainment — the VivoMouse wireless touchpad mouse and the ultra-compact VivoPC. VivoMouse is the world’s first wireless mouse with an integrated multi-touch touchpad for full desktop and handheld control. VivoPC is a stylish and compact desktop PC that delivers high quality sound with exclusive SonicMaster audio and high-performance wireless networking thanks to 802.11ac Wi-Fi.
ASUS VivoMouse is an entirely new kind of pointing device, thanks to its innovative combination of traditional desktop input and a wireless handheld remote for more casual PC control. VivoMouse can be used as a standard optical mouse that fits comfortably in the hand, but its top surface also incorporates a large circular touchpad with full support for Windows 8 multi-touch gestures.
The wide, flat design means VivoMouse can be used interchangeably as a mouse and desktop touchpad, making it ideal for Windows 8 PCs that lack a multi-touch display. However, its wireless PC connection also makes VivoMouse ideal for one-handed control away from the desktop, so it’s also the perfect peripheral for a living room PC.
ASUS VivoPC is a compact PC that’s ideal for home productivity and entertainment applications. Just 56mm tall and with a footprint smaller than a sheet of A4 paper, VivoPC slips easily into the smallest of spaces, and has a stylish spun metal finish to complement both home offices and living rooms. VivoPC features ASUS SonicMaster audio technology for incredible sound quality with external speakers and high-performance 802.11ac Wi-Fi for smooth HD video streaming and seamless web browsing.
Despite its compact dimensions, VivoPC is also well-equipped when it comes to expandability. A sliding case cover gives quick access to the two internal memory slots and the drive bay can accommodate a 3.5-inch or 2.5-inch SATA 6Gbit/s hard drive.
