No, it's not a mini-disc music player, it's not a powder compact either, but a new wireless mouse by ASUS, which intends to take on Apple's Magic Mouse, which gives users a touch surface apart from being a pointing device. ASUS' WD-XL, as it's called, sports a perfectly round shape, with a slight tilt when placed on its tracking surface. One of its lead designers is Danish design house David Lewis, which also worked on ASUS' NX90 designer notebook.

Measuring 80 (L) x 80 (W) x 31.5 (H), its top holds a circular touch surface with a few feather-touch media keys, with two mouse buttons to its north. As a pointing device, the WD-XL has a 1200 dpi laser sensor. It connects to the PC over a common 2.4 GHz RF wireless connection. The touch surface gives users access to several touch-based UI features of Windows 7, without having to crane your arms to a touchscreen display. It is said to be priced at US $79. The company pitches this product as an "All Round Mouse Perfection".
