LogitechLogitech wins Japan Good Design Award : Logitech announced that five of its products received a prestigious Good Design Award 2006, sponsored by the Japan Industrial Design Promotion Organization. The five Logitech products - two computer mice, a PC speaker system, a webcam and a cordless keyboard-and-mouse combination - were named winners in the product design category. Logitech has won 14 Good Design awards in the past four years. “We are passionate about delivering distinctive designs that exceed our customers’ expectations,” said Guerrino De Luca, president and chief executive officer of Logitech. “Industrial design has been paramount to the success of Logitech and its products, its a honor to receive these awards this year”.
Logitech wins Japan Good Design Award 2006 Logitech MX Revolution
Logitech’s most advanced mouse, the Logitech MX Revolution mouse transforms the experience of finding and manipulating the vast amount of digital content on a person’s computer or on the Web. It features hyper-fast scrolling with a revolutionary alloy wheel - the MicroGear Precision Scroll Wheel - that can spin freely for up to seven seconds, spanning hundreds of pages with a single flick of the finger. A thumb wheel provides control of zooming or application switching, while an innovative One-Touch Search feature allows people to select a word or phrase on a Web page or in a document and, with a single click, view Internet search results on that subject. And its ergonomic design, with sculpted contours and a rubber thumb grip, makes it easy and comfortable to control the mouse - it becomes a nearly imperceptible extension of the hand.

Japan Good Design Award 2006 conclusion
“The first moment the user touches this product, the benefit and advantage of it are understood,” the Good Design Jury commented. “Logitech’s commitment to ergonomics and the careful shaping of the mouse resulted in a comfortable design and the most practical placement of buttons.”

Logitech VX Revolution
Designed for notebook PC users who want the very best in a mouse, the Logitech VX Revolution mouse balances portability and comfort. It is smaller in size than its sibling MX Revolution mouse and includes a slot to store the 2.4 GHz micro-receiver, making it more portable. It also features hyper-fast scrolling with the MicroGear Precision Scroll Wheel. And its ergonomic design, rubber-lined thumb and pinky grips, and slightly concave key plates make it highly comfortable to use. The base of the mouse features a switch that can shift the MicroGear Precision Scroll Wheel from free-spin mode to click-to-click mode. The mouse also includes a zoom slider for zooming in and out of open documents and photos.

Japan Good Design Award 2006 conclusion
“Only Logitech, which has been dedicated to mouse development for a long time with a commitment to ergonomics, could have delivered such a high-level product,” the Good Design jury reported. “It offers a natural fit for many hand sizes without creating stress on the hand, even after long hours of use. The way it controls scrolling is developed so intelligently.”

Logitech Z-10 Interactive 2.0 Speakers
The Logitech Z-10 Interactive 2.0 Speakers feature a groundbreaking design that changes how people think about and use PC speakers. With built-in touch-sensitive controls and a backlighted display that shows digital-music track information, a clock, volume and more, these innovative speakers are meant to be touched, seen and heard. The speaker satellites’ polished acrylic faces offer clean, minimalist facades accented by the digital display and each speaker’s two metal mesh grills. Perfect for use with either a desktop or notebook PC, the powerful speakers deliver rich audio without using a separate space-consuming subwoofer. By putting touch-sensitive controls on the face of the Z-10 speakers, Logitech has eliminated the need for people to toggle between applications to control their music on their computer monitor.

Japan Good Design Award 2006 conclusion
“These speakers offer a striking design with the contrast of their black glossy surface, silver accents and the soft orange colors of the LCD panel,” the Good Design jury commented. “These speakers received a Good Design award because they are compact in size but the design delivers great impact.”

Logitech QuickCam Ultra Vision
The QuickCam Ultra Vision webcam offers a true-to-life video calling experience by delivering twice the image clarity as that offered by typical webcams. It combines an extra-large, precision-engineered, five-element glass lens with a low f-stop setting, increasing the amount of light entering the webcam and precisely focusing that light to create sharp, vivid images. The QuickCam Ultra Vision webcam also features the new Logitech RightLight 2 Technology, which intelligently adapts the camera’s video settings based on the environment in which the camera is used. The stunning webcam design incorporates the most premium materials Logitech has ever assembled into a webcam. In addition to the glass lens, chrome details draw attention to the webcam’s built-in microphone, lens housing and the edges of the cylinder-shaped webcam. The webcam also comes with Logitech Video Effects software, which allows people to transform themselves into three-dimensional animated characters or wear animated accessories as they communicate using their webcam over the Internet.

Japan Good Design Award 2006 conclusion
The Good Design jury stated, “The Ultra Vision webcam offers a well-balanced design that clips easily atop a computer screen. The companion Video Effects software works extremely well, and allows people to experience a new way of communicating.”

Logitech Cordless Desktop MX 3200 Laser
The Logitech Cordless Desktop MX 3200 Laser mouse-and-keyboard combination delivers when efficiency matters most. The keyboard’s dynamic search/zoom panel makes navigating digital content and finding information simple. Innovative One-Touch search buttons can be used to search for key words, phrases, or file names on the Web, or on a computer. A touch-sensitive slider allows people to scroll up and down or zoom in and out of a document, Web page, or photo. The keyboard also offers one-touch access to Internet calling with its dedicated communications panel. A media panel, including a digital display, makes controlling and navigating digital music easy. Both the laser mouse and keyboard are designed with comfort in mind. The mouse has gently contoured sides and soft rubber grips that offer enhanced support and comfort, and the keyboard includes an integrated soft-touch palm rest, which can help reduce fatigue.

Japan Good Design Award 2006 conclusion
“When they first touch the mouse and keyboard, users will realize that the organic shapes and details of the MX 3200 were designed with great care, even the bottom of the mouse,” the Good Design jury commented.

About the Good Design Award
The Good Design Award (G-Mark) is the successor to the Good Design Selection System, which was established by the former Ministry of International Trade and Industry in 1957. Since 1998, the Award has been sponsored by the Japan Industrial Design Promotion Organization, as Japan´s only system for assessing and promoting overall design. The Good Design Award is presented for designs that clearly demonstrate merit in the following assessment categories: designs that meet or exceed a certain standard, superior designs, and future-oriented designs. The Award is intended to contribute to “a more abundant lifestyle” and “good business,” in order to create new forms of culture and lifestyle for a new era. The symbol of the Award is the G-Mark, which has become widely recognized among the general public.
