Touchpad Mouse

Ever need a tiny little touchpad but have no place to put it? How about inside your mouse?

Enter the Hanwang T&Mouse. There's a huge "hole" where your palm rests on the mouse, and that has a flat area that's a mini tablet.

Mind you, this is designed for the Asian market, where the characters are usually written, not typed via keyboard. On the other hand, it is still... weird.

The Genius Ring Mouse is more of a remote presenter type of peripheral, as you can just use your thumb to navigate the pointer.

So how do you 'drag' on this thing?

The Convertible Slim Mouse

Do you have a small PC Card slot that is sitting unused because almost all peripherals comes in USB nowadays? Here's the world's slimmest mouse...

The Power Positioning G4 Slim Mouse is definitely a weird duck... You have to unpack it, fold it, unpack the cable, AND plug it in. And it's VERY delicate from the looks of it.

However, it sure is cute.

Skype Phone Mouse

Are you embarrassed with a headset? Probably not, but some people just prefer the weight of a handset. After all, if there is no need, nobody would have came up with...

Calculator Mouse

There's a calculator in every PC made... So do you really need another calculator? Canon apparently believes so... Which is why they made SEVERAL different calculator mice. They have regular, flip-up, and more.

To the right is merely one of them. You can see it's a normal mouse. Two buttons, scroll wheel, and so on. It's even ambidextrous (good for either hand). The question still begs to be asked: Why?
