Tyukalov Handmade Mice
Designer Slava Tyukalov says he has begun limited production of his Handmade Wireless Optical Mouse. In contrast to the plastic shells often dictated by mass production, each mouse is assembled in part from materials used by NASA and other space agencies, according to Tyukalov. Each mouse is also constructed of luxury materials that would be equally impractical in factory assembly: the signature GoldenEye model features snakeskin, while the Cold Steel (pictured) and Black Pearl are both covered by chrome and leather. Although none of the mice have received standardized pricing, the designer currently provides individual price quotes as necessary.
