"Couch surfing means different things to different people. Some see it as a way of travelling the world without ever having to shell out money for a hotel room, while others see it as a way of checking their emails while never leaving the comfort of their leather recliner. Logitech's new wireless mouse, the M515, is squarely aimed at the latter, though we're sure some of the former would enjoy this device should they find themselves in a house belonging to the latter. With the advent of smart TVs, for better or worse, the way we connect to them has become something of a hot topic. Logitech's solution is to produce a mouse designed to work specifically on soft furnishings so you don't need a mouse mat or hard surface for it to work properly."
This isn't exactly new technology - we've had mice that can work on any surface for years - but this is an optimised approach that makes it a bit more appropriate for couch-bound use. Ultimately I feel like this isn't the best approach though - the Lenovo Multimedia Remote would probably be a better solution. What sort of input device do you use from your couch if you have a connected device?
