Is this the end of laser?

Some eagle-eyed readers over at Engadget have stumbled upon a Microsoft Explorer Mini Mouse with "Blue Track" technology on Amazon.de.

If you recall, Microsoft recently tempted fans with a "Say Goodbye To Laser" teaser touting new technology around the corner. Could this be evidence?

The 'Gadg reports that the "Blue Track" technology is "based on a blue LED combined with a wide-angle lens that's supposed to work on more surfaces than laser and optical," and that the company seems to be aiming this at the portable market, noting the mouse's wireless adapter and miniature size.
