Microsoft Hardware has posted a teaser on their website about something new coming on September 9th. The teaser features the line “Say Goodbye to Laser” so it seems that the company is about to unveil a new sort of optical mouse technology.

An Engadget reader found a new MS Explorer Mini Mouse with “Blue Track” on Amazon’s German site and while this isn’t a lock this could be what Microsoft is planning to announce on September 9th (or at least part of it).

Blue Track is reportedly a blue LED combined with a wide-angle lens, allowing it to work on more surfaces than other optical mouse technology.
