Kensington SlimBlade Trackerball

Kensington has launched its latest trackerball device, which can be twisted as well as rolled, so the cursor can be positioned on screen and then used to navigate through documents and files stored on the PC and even to zoom in or out.

The ruby red trackerball is positioned within a brushed aluminium ring and sits on a sleek dark grey mount, which features buttons to select programs and files in the same way a traditional mouse would.

According to Kensington the device reduces the risk of RSI and other aliments as it requires less use of your wrist to control the device.

"The universal device works for all Macs and PCs, and connects to desktops through a high-quality braided cord," said George Foot, director at Kensington Europe. "It allows users navigate through music, pictures and text using media or document view mode with unparalleled ease."

Available from March, the Kensington SlimBlade Trackerball will cost £59.99.
