Thanko Snowglobe Mouse
Thanko on Friday released its USB Optical Liquid Mouse in time for the holiday season. The base of the mouse contains a snowglobe and an LED that gradually cycles through seven colors while in use. The front of the mouse is just as festive, according to Thanko. A white LED illuminates the mouse wheel, while clicking the mouse buttons on its grinning face triggers an audible laugh. Thanko's latest peripheral plugs in via USB to Macs and Windows PCs, has an 800DPI optical sensor, and sells for $8 from Japan.
