Car mouse leaves others in dust

Now this is what we call a design

Chip Chick

Listen up, Microsoft. If you want to get people's attention with a pink product , you're going to have to do more than just change the color.

Take the "Street Mouse," for example--a mouse that's been turned into a pink race car complete with "sports alloy style wheels, tinted windows and working blue LED headlights ideal for those dimly lit evenings on the Internet." Chip Chick notes also that this isn't a toy but an ergonomically designed 800 dpi mouse too.

That's a lot better use of R&D money than we've seen put into a lot of unnecessary mouse designs . We just wish it were wireless, but then we'd probably be too tempted to play with it.
