The mouse has gone anorexic. I mean look at this thing. You can barely get a finger on it. Somebody better plug that guy into the USB port and let it eat. This one is called the I-T Click Click 2 and yes, it’s controlled with a finger and a thumb.

We aren’t sure how comfortable that would be, but we imagine that it’s like a constant pinch without anyone yelping. The I-T Click Click 2 features an 800dpi optic sensor. Those in Japan can purchase this thin mouse for 1980 Yen or $21.

Each one is built from quality electronic components and feature an optical resolution of 1600 dpi, along with microswitches rated for over 1 million clicks. If that isn’t enough, how about a stiff, yet bendable cable that keeps the cord from getting in your way.

Titanium ID Mouse looks elegant, costs a fortuneThe elegant looking ID Mouse shown here was recently showcased at Dutch Design Week 2009. The Bluetooth-enabled mouse is all about luxury and you know what that means. It means a hefty price tag. How about $1200?

Yeah, I appreciate great design as much as anyone, but there ain’t no way I’m buying a mouse for $1200. I don’t care if it is made of hand-formed grade 1 titanium with a high-quality plastic finish. I also don’t care if it has a 3-button neodymium scroll wheel for smooth scrolling.
