Perhaps Nobody Asked, But Logitech Made An AI Mouse Anyway

We’re in the age where everything – and we mean everything – can have AI slapped on them, so the existence of this AI mouse from Logitech isn’t all that surprising for some. In any case, let us describe this mouse to our best ability, and you shall be the judge.

So, the mouse in question is the Logitech Signature AI Edition M750 Wireless Mouse, and it comes with not one, but two AI buttons. The first one is below the mouse wheel – where the DPI switch is situated in a conventional mouse. Here, it’ll summon the ChatGPT-powered Logi AI Prompt Builder app where users can use it to summarize text or write emails (with the option to adjust length and tone, too).

Based on what we know, the AI Prompt Builder will support several Logitech mice, as long as they support the Logi Options+ software. Currently, the AI app only supports English, though the company says more AI chatbots will be supported at a later date.

The second AI button takes over the back button, where the mouse will give you direct access to ChatGPT, skipping all that opening apps, entering URLs – you know, the boring stuff. As for the forward button, it’s also reassigned into instant access to voice dictation mode for respective operating systems (macOS and Windows only).

For now, this mouse is not available in Malaysia yet – the current listing price is $49.99 in the US. I’m not sure if instant access to AI chatbots is your kind of thing, but hey, now you have the option to do so. Just don’t get stuck in deciding which chatbot to use, because Windows PCs now have a mandatory Copilot button, remember.

Pokdepinion: I’m not exactly a fan of turning everything into an AI button – it genuinely feels like it’s Clippy all over again.
