BuddhaPad claims to be the world's only mouse pad that absorbs your energy and transforms it into good fortune. Just rub the belly of the Buddha adorning the 8.5-inch circular pad, the Web site promises, and you'll be blessed with infinite happiness, prosperity and good luck.
Sigh. If only true enlightenment was as easily attainable as a $10.95 (plus shipping and handling) mouse pad...
Then again, there may actually be some good karma connected to owning a BuddhaPad. That's because, according to press materials, 10 percent of the proceeds from Buddhapads sold go to the Make-a-Wish Foundation, a genuinely admirable organization that grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions.
The pads, designed by i&D Media Group, are available for purchase on the BuddhaPad site. Incense and wind chimes not included.
