    Cool 19 ماوس يصدمك ويروعك

    19 Mice That Shock And Awe - But Mostly Shock




    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.

    Nintendo fanboys may really dig this mouse version of the Nintendo Entertainment System controller. The design is sleek and smooth, featuring two gamepad buttons on the top (replacing the standard mouse buttons) and a D-Pad button on the side. "This is a foam model that was modeled in various ways for a project in school," the designer says. "I chose to make a Nintendo Entertainment System mouse for which I took much of the design language from the NES system and gamepad."
    There's no indication on how the D-Pad actually works, although it's assumed that it replaces the scroll wheel with a possible X-axis scroll feature. Whether this is a decent mouse for fragging remains to be seen, though, in appearance, it's at least suitable as a conversation starter.

    What can be said about this novelty peripheral? It's certainly unique, to say the least, and could pose a problem for those on a strict diet. For $20, the Hamburger Computer Mouse does little else except sit there, look tasty, and perform basic mouse needs. The device has a tracking speed of 500 mm/s, a 250 DPI resolution, and a switch-service life of three million clicks.
    For consumers looking for a bit more meat, the $14 Hamburger USB Warmer Mouse Pad looks a little questionable, requiring users to stick their mouse and hand inside the fake burger. The USB portion powers the heating element, while the pad itself looks more like an alien disguised as a meal, waiting to nibble on your digits.
    Without the hand-warmer device, you might be able to get away with using the mouse in a casual sense for Solitaire, Hearts, or some other casual gaming. The shape itself seems too round and hard to grip. Besides, you might be the laughing stock of the clan trying to take out a few heads using a fake all-beef patty in a sesame bun (with cheese).

    Want to freak your wife or significant other the heck out? Here's a downright shocking birthday or anniversary gift for her that will almost guaranteed land you in the dog house: a dead mouse turned into a fully functional desktop peripheral. Called the Mouse Mouse, this mod requires an actual dead rodent, knowledge of taxidermy, and a small, travel-sized hardware mouse.
    Modders can purchase an expired rodent frozen or fresh at a local pet store (normally sold as reptile food), but those who want to create an optical version will need to purchase a pale-furred mouse for the lightest skin pigment.
    Once the mouse has been acquired, the rest of the process consists of eight additional steps including, shaving and dissecting the corpse, shoving the hardware inside, pulling the USB cable thought its butt, and more yummy goodness.
    Beyond the overall creep-factor of its preparation, can this zombie mouse handle Crysis? We're going to assume that's a big fat negative. In fact, this mouse might not survive one round of twitch-based gameplay. Yuck.

    As with the Mouse Mouse, this animal-themed peripheral takes modding a bit too far. Although the designer had a steampunk design in mind, the sheep's skull could prove a bit much, even in just a few minutes of use. We're not condemning the creator's artistic expression--the design does have quite a few interesting aspects from an artist's point of view, especially in the way the eyes and teeth are made.
    However, from a gamer's perspective, this mouse appears to be far from useful. It's assumed that the upper-left and -right sections of the skull serve as buttons, and the circular saw in the middle serves both as a mouse wheel and possible means of ripping the tips of your finger. This mouse looks about as practical as spiked choker (and probably appeals to the same crowd).

    While the concept is rather cool, the practicality here is practically zilch. Let's face it, the rigid, square edges and protruding brick nubs will make this LEGO-themed mouse somewhat painful to control. This is likely especially true during the heat of the action, when your first reflex is to grip that mouse hard.
    Believe it or not, this optical mouse retails for $26.60 and is compatible with the PC and Mac. Its overall size is 3.7" x 1.2" x 2.1" and features the standard left and right buttons, a scroll wheel, and an 800 DPI resolution. Even on an everyday basis, the LEGO mouse may be somewhat painful to use. If anything, it's a cool device to show fellow gadget collectors.

    Now here's a mouse that looks to be ideal for first-person shooters: a gun mounted on an optical mouse. For what more could you ask? Just grip the Sig Sauer P230 replica and frag to your heart's content. This device was built for 3D gaming, offering a forward-position optical sensor that allows for wrist movement (versus full-hand movement). It also has optimized control placement by sticking four controls under the fingers at all times for optimal twitch gaming.
    Unfortunately, this device is no longer manufactured by Solware, but gamers can purchase the more advanced MonsterGecko Pistol Mouse from Amazon for $100. hitting the market back in 2007, the MonsterGecko requires no driver, has a forward-position optical sensor, and an 800 DPI optical resolution. For those not in the mood to shoot at friends on Facebook, the base serves as a less-violent means of getting around the Internet.
    For more experienced players, this mouse might actually be fun to use, but it may not be ideal for new gamers getting into first-person shooters.

    Chocolate lovers will probably get more out of this candy bar mouse than gamers. Much like the LEGO mouse, this peripheral simply seems annoying to grip onto, and it would seem to be designed as a conversation piece. Oh sure, the chocolate mouse has its usefulness: two mouse buttons and an M&M-style wheel planted between two chocolate squares pretty much covers the basics.
    Although the device isn't in stock, the Choco Mouse retails for around $30 and measures 9.5 x 5.5 x 2.0 cm. A wireless version is also located here, offering a creamy center sandwiched between two chocolate layers. Both devices are compatible with Windows XP, Vista, and Mac operating systems. Thanks to its thicker design, users might have better luck gripping the latter device over the thinner model.
    While we can't claim this one is any good for gaming, it might be a way of expressing appreciation for your better half's love of the brown stuff.

    Here's a mouse modification that uses a bottle in the shape of a grenade as the outer hull. Discovered on a Russian modding forum, the details surrounding this unique design weren't provided. However, it seems that the left and right mouse buttons are wired up to the trigger. The mouse has a resolution of 800 DPI and very well could be wireless.
    "Inventor Spaniard once sat in front of a computer and fiddled with a bottle in the form of grenades," reads the translated forum post. "And here he was visited by inspiration: why not make the mouse in the form of half grenades? He armed himself with paint, scissors, and conceived it was done." (Ed.: worst translation ever?)
    As many users pointed out, the overall design isn't ergonomically friendly. It clearly isn't meant for PC gaming, but it does look cool. There's also no indication of what would happen if you were to pull the pin.
    --------------------





    This mouse just leaves us speechless. Obviously The Bug (steampunk computer mouse) is not the ideal device for gaming. At least, its appearance leads us to believe that frequent play might cause sore palms and fingers. Nevertheless, it's extremely fascinating on a design level. A mix-match of various gears, solid brass knobs, and keys come together to create something unique.
    "The circuit board (and presumably the human eye) are hidden under this brass-plated-steel corner piece from a steamer trunk," the modder writes. "A random cog fills in the gap in back and allows some of the mouse’s LED lights to glow through." The modder adds that the PCB is uniformly painted a gun metal gray to make the visible parts blend into the overall steampunk theme.
    To make the left and right buttons, the modder used two hinge pieces from a toilet seat mounting kit. The scroll wheel is made from an alarm clock's escapement wheel and a small brass knob. Ultimately, the device weighs around 10 to 15 oz., which makes the device pleasantly heavier than the typical plastic mouse.
    ----------------------





    The Jet Fighter Aircraft USB optical mouse not only looks cool, but might actually serve as a decent gaming mouse with a resolution of 1,200 DPI, two standard buttons, and a scroll wheel serving as the cockpit window. While it could certainly use a few more inputs, the device is surprisingly inexpensive, costing a mere $7.76.
    "Put your hand on top of the wings and feel it sink into the mouse," reads the product description. Unlike other odd mice we've seen so far, this device's ergonomic design appears to be at least fairly comfortable. Other bells and whistles include extra LED lighting, to give it a bit more flair, a choice of two aircraft colors (black or red), and support for Windows 98 through Vista.
    So why would gamers avoid this mouse? That's a good question. It's probably a device you'd want to leave behind when attending a LAN party, at the very least. It might look a little silly sitting next to more serious PC gaming peripherals. The Jet Fighter mouse could be a distraction too, tempting users to zoom it over the desk like a toy airplane.
    ------------------------------------





    What is this thing? A partial hand? A detached set of teeth growing a pair of thumbs? Whatever it is, it's not pretty. In fact, this ugly mouse is pretty much the anti-Choco Mouse, keeping females a fair distance from your desk, guaranteed.
    While its origin is unknown, the device sports a lighter shade of skin complete with a tattoo, veins, and hair. The nails are eerily realistic. Someone needs to either file or clip those nails pronto, as they will likely cut someone or trigger a gag reflex at your next fragfest.
    Turn the mouse over and you'll find the optical laser...mounted within a gaping mouth. The modder took extra care to model a real set of teeth and lips, adding a but of tasty tooth decay under the laser's mount. The USB cable exiting this creepy mound of flesh even looks like a pair of drainage tubes.
    -------------------------------------------





    As the image indicates, EverGreen Japan's Dog Mouse just doesn't seem practical as a gaming peripheral (or any other sort, for that matter), nor does it look ergonomically sound, even for the most basic of PC functions. Instead, this peripheral is more of a collector's item for canine lovers, offering different breeds in different poses as they slouch behind their individual desks. On a technical level, the mouse looks very basic, with the whole circular platform under the figurine serving as one huge mouse button. Should gamers avoid this mouse? Most definitely.
    ----------------------------------





    This is another mouse that came into existence simply because it could be done. According to the modder, the Minty Altoids Mouse's overall construction took around four hours to complete and is made out of an Altoids tin, a Logitech USB optical mouse, a Dremel tool, a mini-hack saw, two-part epoxy, and random plastic bits.
    The mod actually looks rather simple, while the end result isn't something you'd want to use in Modern Warfare 2. At first glace, it appears that the mod only offers a protruding mouse wheel. However, upon further inspection of photos uploaded to Flickr, it looks as though he used the two-part epoxy to create makeshift button pads that touch the circuit board.
    If anything, this project should inspire new and experienced modders to think beyond the standard mouse design.


    ------------------------------------





    It was only a matter of time before someone decided to turn a cursor into a wireless optical mouse. The Mus2 looks rather slick, sporting a plastic hull that feels like suede to the touch. Obviously, the peripheral isn't exactly gaming material, especially since it only offers two small mouse buttons at the tip. Still, its unusual shape would make for a great conversation piece, and could be quite helpful when you're trying to give someone directions.
    At the hardware level, the laser provides a resolution of 800 DPI and is powered by two AAA batteries. Apparently, there's also a built-in power indicator in the handle that lights up when the batteries are low or need replacing. The creators boast that the Mus2 fits well in the hand, and doesn't cause any discomfort.
    -------------------------------------------------





    Either this mouse is utterly cool or it's utterly distracting, depending on the situation. Disguised as a non-ergonomic optical mouse, this Transformers clone can quickly turn into some kind of robotic dinosaur contraption that will surely lure in pesky kids and nibbling cats.
    Would it be ideal for gaming? As a mouse, it seems fairly basic, with an 800 DPI resolution, two buttons, and a scroll wheel. As the Trypticon, the device is probably worthless, unless you have other toys hanging out on the desk that need a friend.
    Interested mouse collectors be warned: this peripheral doesn't come cheap; it sports a hefty $62.99 price tag (and it's on sale). The reseller also warns that the product is for adult collectors, and may contain sharp points, small parts, and other elements that are not suitable for children under 16 years of age. If that's the case, you might as well slap on an AO rating and shove it on the shelf next to Grand Theft Auto IV.



    ---------------------------------------------





    This design is somewhat comical, even though it's just a tire-shaped mouse. Why is it so funny? It's a tire. It's not a mouse version of an Imperial Star Destroyer or the BFG 9000 gun from Doom. It's a tire--and a boring, unmarked one at that. Still, the device probably sells just for its originality, and it probably only works well for the basic necessities (like checking email, loading up Hulu, or uploading drunken pictures of your friends to Facebook). PC gaming is undoubtedly out of the question.
    Although the specifics are minimal, the device offers the standard two buttons and a scroll wheel. The product description indicates that, like an actual tire, the mouse is made of rubber and stainless steel. Ultimately, this would be a cool gift for racing fans.
    -------------------------------------------





    The Super Slim is probably one of the more unique designs we've seen in this batch of mice, sporting a large button mounted on a black top and a transparent red chassis with a similarly-colored mouse wheel mounted on the side. The shape looks futuristic, as if the designer pulled some inspiration from a sci-fi movie. The button itself is patented with a front/rear operation, turning one button into two.
    As a gaming mouse, it could actually work. After all, console gamers can play first-person shooters just fine using a similarly-shaped Wii Remote (although the former device is more rounded). Then again, it may be awkward to move across the desk, and could very well tire the hand muscles after a while.
    The Super Slim measures 3.23" x 0.94" x 0.71", weighs around 3.17 oz., and features a resolution of 800 DPI. It's also rather inexpensive, at $11.08 with free shipping.
    -------------------





    Disney fans can pick up this Minnie Mouse USB optical mouse over on eBay for $5.29. Whether it's actually Disney-sanctioned is unknown (Ed.: doubtful, Kevin), the device has a surprisingly high resolution of 1,200 DPI and uses advanced optical technology for more quick and accurate movements.
    With the standard two-button mouse wheel setup, this peripheral might actually be decent for casual gaming. With that said, it might be best to leave Minnie at home when you're lugging your rig to the next LAN party. Then again, it might actually be funny to see the look on everyone's face when you walk in with Minnie Mouse in hand. Just bring a more powerful, sleeker backup (or your four year-old daughter).
