20 Mice That Shock And Awe (But Mostly Shock)

20 Mice That Shock And Awe (But Mostly Shock)
By
The Insect Amber Computer Mouse

Although pricing varies, this bug-infested Insect Amber Computer Mouse features what the manufacturer calls an "absolutely real-bug, 100% natural." The image should speak for itself. The device is illuminated from within, and could very well make any embedded critter look totally cool. Customers can choose from various mice with bugs inside and color options including crabs, spiders, wasps, and more.

As far as gaming goes, you might be disappointed to find that there don't seem to be any real concessions for performance. Nevertheless, having a scorpion a mere inch or less away from the palm of your hand just seems creepy. For those who just can't stand the thought of a corpse staring back up from the desktop, there's an optional seashell that might help combat your performance anxiety. At the end of the day, your interest in this mouse will likely hinge on your appreciation of insects.

    That dead mouse is repulsive beyond belief. Killing something for that purpose is just wrong. Although, somehow feeding one to a snake seems OK. I might need therapy.

    The ugly hand would be kind of cool. I'd love to put one in my guest room, and have an unsuspecting guest come across that thing.

    Or get that metal one and stick it with an antique computer and tell kids that it was the standard mouse in "the bad old days" (not to mention we had to walk 18 miles to school and got donkey-kicked if we were late, etc...).

    eklipz330how come no one on this site ever says first? is this the only forum on the internet without any douschebags [aside from those that spam ads]?

    I've stopped myself a few times... Keep it at least semi professional (excluding the flame wars). Can't say for the ads though, I always use FF with AdBlock+.

    I think I'd bring the Minnie Mouse mouse to a LAN, just for the lulz.
    I'd also carry my full size black steel tower with backpack straps, turn it on, and show how loud enthusiast-class air cooling can be.

    I loved the first one (I'd put a nasty scorpion in it), and the grenade one. Be cool if the grenade mouse was two parts, one is a bluetooth receiver, and the other is the mouse, with the pin being set to a customizable command (such as, encrypt or destroy as many files as fast as possible because the FBI just knocked my door down).

    Lots of fail though.

    A friend of mine has one of those Gun mouse(s). The extra weight kind of helps for the people that think that mouse are too light, the additional weight also helps avoid accidental mouse movement by just finger movement, but beyond that, it's just a novelty item.

    eklipz330 might want to learn to spell douchebag before he worries about why kids aren't replying with "first"...

    Some seam retarded while the "mouse mouse" looked better than a few and that says a lot being that it is hideous. Worse it will rot over time unless it sat on display only. They could do a mouse with a leather surface but they better tan the hide right or it will leave stains on ones hand after some use.

    seriously did they have to use a real mouse for the mouse mouse, some latex, stuffed animal hair, could have easily made that look with the use of any real rat body parts ... just sick they did a taxiderm version

    The super slim looks as though it should have a vibrating feature, maybe it should be renamed as phallic fantasy?

    Isn't the hand one kinda similar to Vampire Hunter D? A mouth in the palm of the hand.

    WOW! Those are some pretty creative mice.

    My own personal favorite is a genuine mahogony mouse I bought in Japan when I was stationed there in the late 1990's.
