A mouse for sweaty palms

The LED lights are OK, but we like the rubber skin

Next to useless iPod accessories, the mouse industry may be the most active in the gadget realm. But unlike some products, this one might actually be useful.

Rubber mouse

The eye-candy draw of this optical USB mouse from European manufacturer Trust is seven LED colors that you can change at will. (Call it a mood mouse.) But the more practical feature is the layer of rubber that covers it: If you still like playing games on your PC once in awhile, or are just a sweaty-palmed beast in general, this mouse can help keep crucial traction when you need it most.
