A Mouse That’s a Battery and Eyeglasses for Your Cell Phone
November 29th, 2011
While touchscreens and trackpads might be what people yearn for, the reality is that most of us still have to use computer mice in some fashion. This is why Nendo designed this mouse that looks like a “D”-cell battery. Need I say more?
The Elecom Kandenchi mouse’s unusual design is a based on the fact that all wireless mice need to be recharged. The nub on the positive end has been turned into the click button, and there’s even a scroll wheel on the side. The interesting thing is that this form factor reduces the overall size of the mouse, meaning that you can use it in more confined places. Ergonomics, on the other hand, have been thrown out the window.
After they were done with the battery mouse, they made a stand that looks like a pair of glasses. Why not? The Megane stand comes in both tablet and smartphone sizes, and when it’s not in use, it folds up like glasses do.
Unlike the eyeglasses on your face, these ones have suction cups in place of lenses, to hold your gadgets firmly in place.
There’s no word yet on pricing or availability of these quirky items, but my guess is that they won’t be that expensive – though they may be difficult to find outside of Japan.
