This has got to be one of the wierdest mouse… at least for me, made me look at it twice! It’s from Japan, of course, made of wood.. yeah I know, if you’re a back-to-nature kind of guy you’d feel right at home with The Jupiter Mouse. Made by Actbrise Electronics.
Ok, Jim, if this is a mouse how does it work? Well… the cursor moves in direction and velocity according to the tilt of the spherical mouse, which rests comfortably in the palm of your hand.
