If you're a fan of odd computer peripherals, this mouse should be right up your alley. Created by American designer Joey Roth, the felt mouse is a two-button optical mouse with a (barely visible) scroll wheel.

This quirky prototype device is slated to be exhibited at the American Design Club's Use Me show. The art exhibition aims to feature artistic designs that "exhibit a strong sense of purpose, intelligent use of materials and the ability to do one thing extremely well."
