Our resident Photoshop wizards are no slouches when it comes to cropping an awkward image, but they’re not fast enough for Logitech. It’s bringing this ‘navigator’ to the UK, which apparently improves productivity in users of such arty programs no end.The NuLOOQ is a tricky device to pigeonhole. It lets you navigate, but isn’t a mouse. It can also perform virtually any keyboard program, but isn’t a keyboard either.Surely this makes it the most useless gadget ever, like the Griffin Powermate? Not quite. It has all sorts of clever functions, like a moveable ring that lets you zoom into images without doing the keyboard stretch, and lets you keep one hand on the mouse at all times to make your Illustrator, InDesign or iTunes sessions that bit more comfortable. If you’re not a fan of those programs, you can also customize the NuLOOQ’s buttons for any computer actions you like. And, even if you don’t actually use it, it’ll at least look arcane and cool sitting on your desk.
