Rotobotmouse: One Unusual Mouse

 |  |  |  |  |  |  |  |  |  February 17, 2010


I think that’s actually an understatement. The Rotobotmouse is one of the stranger computer mice that I’ve seen in my travels – and I’ve seen lots of mouses.

Created by artist Aaron Ristau, the Rotobotmouse definitely has some steampunk underpinnings, but it’s really got a look that’s all its own. The handmade mouse features a round body design and moves across the desktop with a “go-cart like handling”.  The Robotomouse is a fully-functional optical mouse, complete with retro typewriter “L” and “R” buttons, an archaic scroll wheel, and a glowing red light that illuminates the palm of the user’s hand. Did I mention that you stick your pinky finger through that copper loop when you use this mouse?

This unique mousing creation is selling for $300 (USD) is available over on Aaron’s storefront in the new Makers Market. Be sure to check out Aaron’s other wondrous creations while you’re there. I’m especially enthralled with his Subatomic Disintegrator. I could really use one of those.
