A lot of the mice we’ve seen in the market today are pretty standard in terms of design. Logitech on the other hand has been experimenting with different designs, like with the MX Ergo that came with a trackball on its side. Now it looks like the company is back with what could be its wildest design yet – the Logitech MX Vertical.

As the name suggests, this is a mouse that has been designed to be used vertically, or on its side. It’s not a full 90-degree angle, but rather it has been positioned at a 57-degree angle, which according to Logitech will be capable of reducing forearm strain and wrist pressure by up to 10% compared to regular mice.

Whether or not those claims are true remains to be seen, but as is the case with a lot of mice and other peripherals like keyboards, it boils down to your personal needs and preferences. What works for someone else doesn’t mean it will work for you. As far as the rest of the MX Vertical’s specs are concerned, it will feature wireless connectivity and support for Logitech’s Flow that lets users seamlessly swap between computers while copying and pasting documents.

It will also sport a 4,000 DPI sensor, and there is also a button that lets users swap sensor speed on the fly. It also has a battery that is rated for up to four months on a single charge, and a one minute charge will be enough to get you an additional 3 hours of use. The Logitech MX Vertical is priced at $100 and is available via Logitech’s website.
