Lite-On developing malleable mouse

http://www.bit-tech.net/news/2008/02...leable_mouse/1

Lite-On Corporation is working on a 'moldable mouse' which can be adjusted by the user to fit perfectly within the contours of their hand. Or to make a penis with buttons.

Nice concept.

I wonder if it will hold up to 39ēC summer days without getting all yucky.

This will almost definitely be popular with women. Don't really think that it will have many other uses. As a mouse, na, my G5 is amazing thanks.

CLAY??! there's far more advanced and better moldable materials to use including some that can stiffen using a small electric current I can just imagine this thing melting in in my hand as I use it. Nothing worse than a deformed booby when your sniping, none the less this could be really cool if they do it right.

I don't see this beating any of the top range mice out there - afterall it's just an idea of how it could work, it's not going to be refined in the first instance. Also, I expect it to be pretty expensive for what it is. Interesting, yes - but I don't think it'd be a sensible purchase for anything other than the novelty factor.

The fact that you can make your mouse look like all sorts of immaturely humorous things makes it totally worth getting if you have the money!
