Alestrukov’S Wooden Computer Mice: the Mightiest Mouse in the Forest
November 19th, 2009
These gorgeous computer mice are made from exotic woods, and are truly stunning. Created by Russia’s AlestRukov, each one is handcrafted using cultivated sustainable woods and carved, sanded and polished to a shiny finish using linseed oil and carnuba wax.
Each one is built from the finest electronic components, with an optical resolution of 1600 dpi, and with microswitches rated for over 1 million clicks. The mice also feature a stiff, but bendable cable that keeps the cord from getting in your way. There’s also a unique sound-wheel control which kicks in to adjust your system’s volume when you click the scroll wheel.
The handmade wooden mice are available in Bubinga, Makor, Sapele, and Ebony woods from exotic locations like Sierra Leone, Cameroon and Sri Lanka. Of course, being a luxury item, you can’t expect them to be cheap. Prices for the mice range from €668 to €859 (appx. $996 to $1281 USD). If you’ve got money to burn, you can get your hands on one of AlestRukov’s mice here.
