On the heels of keyboards with a Cortana key…comes a mouse with a ChatGPT key? Well, mostly. Meet the Logitech Signature AI Edition M750 Mouse.

Logitech plans to launch the Signature AI Edition Mouse in April in the United States and the United Kingdom for $49.99. Though it has a dedicated AI key — you do need a dedicated AI key on your mouse, right? — the button actually launches an app called the Logi AI Prompt Builder, powered by ChatGPT.

That app is part of Logi Options+, the connective software that ties many of Logitech’s MX, or “Master,” series peripherals (plus its Studio Series, Ergo, and others) such as keyboards and mice. When a user presses the AI prompt button on the top of the AI Edition Mouse, they’re actually launching the Prompt Builder within the Options+ app. Existing Logitech peripherals that lack a dedicated ChatGPT key can remap another key to trigger the same function.

Prompt Builder is designed to highlight, copy, and/or edit a portion of the text you’re working on. It looks like a more sophisticated version of the suggested actions Microsoft has tested within Copilot, where users can highlight a block of text, right-click it, and ask for a summary — Copilot key or not.

In this case, Logitech is using ChatGPT to rephrase, summarize, reply, or author an email. A separate box allows drop-down stylistic options including “funny” and “professional.”

Many people still don’t use AI for one reason or another. Logitech hopes to make it as easy as a click of the mouse.
