A mouse for household harmony

Lefties and righties can surf on the same one

With all due respect to ambidextrous families, is this really a burning necessity? We humbly suggest that R&D money might be better spent on other things, such as designing an injury-proof Wiimote . If you must have one of Elecom's "M-EKUR" dual-control mice, Electronista says it can be had for $22 in either neon green or orange. The lefties and righties can thumb-wrestle over which color you get.
