A mouse for the desktop duffer

Golf-ball shaped mouse can't be putted but comes with its own green.

Akihabara News

Novelty mice are nothing new , of course, but it's not often that they come packaged with their own custom environment. But if there's one hobby--
make that obsession--that demands an exception, it's golf. And few places in world are so obsessed than Japan, where this golf-ball mouse hails from.

This dimpled mouse from Green-House comes with its own putting green, which doubles as a pad. The hole and flag are only decorative, unfortunately, but the 800 dpi optical mouse is wired so it wouldn't roll very well on its own anyway. Fareastgizmos says the buttons do light up, however, if you're desperate for a distraction from work.
