Grab your caxirola and celebrate the FIFA World Cup with Logitech's Global Fan Collection
There's only about a month to go until the start of the FIFA World Cup in Brazil, and Logitech is getting fans all over the globe ready by creating a new series of wireless mice called the Logitech Global Fan Collection.
The mouse is the Wireless Mouse M317 (US$29.99), which uses Logitech's proprietary Unifying receiver. What makes each mouse special is the bright casing that surrounds it -- the company has created 13 different graphics to celebrate countries that are playing in the World Cup. The mice available to consumers is based on location; for Americans, you can get a mouse for the USA, Mexico, Argentina, and host country Brazil.
Your mouse uses a replaceable AA battery for power, and from my previous experience with Logitech's wireless optical mice, they're able to keep up accurate pointing and clicking for months on that single battery.
In case you're wondering what a caxirola is, well, it's the official noisemaker of the FIFA World Cup 2014. Much more pleasant on the ears than those obnoxious vuvuzelas of past World Cup events.
