Allegedly capable of working on any smooth surface, from blankets to sofas, the new Logitech Couch Mouse M515 threatens to make stalking Facebook crushes a full-time pursuit, letting you comfortably surf the Web in bed.

Whether curled up on the easy chair with your laptop or pounding out TPS reports on the living room floor, the $49.99 accessory reportedly won’t grip and rip fabric, or choke on carpet hairballs either. Compatible with Mac and Windows PCs, it supposedly glides smoothly over cushions and, theoretically, your cat’s back as well, letting you compute from anywhere. Speedy scrolling features also promise to let users quickly parse obnoxiously long blogs or end-user licensing agreements. Step-based scrolling options will additionally be available via a click-to-click mode for parsing emails and incriminating photo slideshows.

Hand detection technology further provides a power-saving boost, keeping the device asleep and unable to move the cursor unless you’re gripping it. Rated at two years of battery life and connectable to computer via a USB “unifying receiver,” which can also support other wireless devices, it should let couch potatoes get their perezhilton.com on in cord-free comfort.
