Go Computer Helps Non-Techies Get to Know This Computer Thingamajig
The Go Computer, made by a company called firstSTREET, tries its best to be the most user-friendly computer on Earth.

Combimouse: if It Ain’T Broke, Break It
The Combimouse was invented by Ari Zagnoev. Like its name implies, the Combimouse combines a qwerty keyboard with a mouse, resulting in a wtf-inducing, but allegedly functional bizarro thing.
