Carbon fiber 'mouse mat'
Formula 1 mousepads starting at $491
How much is too much for a mousepad?
Anything that's not free? $20? $512?
Formula 1 offers a wide variety of overpriced memorabilia on its F1 store and we have seen our share of and mice, but never have I seen something so ridiculous.
For a mere $491 you can buy a polished carbon fiber mousepad--excuse me "mouse mat"--with the Formula 1 logo. As if that alone were not outrageous enough, the mousepad will not work with optical mice. You need to shell out $512 for the carbon and leather version if you want a mousepad that works with both track-ball and optical mice.
So, who's running over right now to their site to buy it?? Alonso?
Would the fact that it is "hand-made in England" or designed using "state of the art automotive 3D modeling software" bring you any closer to changing you mind about that?
We didn't think so.
