'GPSMouse' tries to find itself

Combination doesn't abandon its original identity.

Deluo

The mouse seems to be undergoing something of a midlife crisis, no longer satisfied with its traditional role on the desktop. While struggling to find its way, it's been experimenting with everything from phones and numeric pads to massages .

But Deluo's "GPSMouse" has at least integrated its expanded function without completely losing its original identity. In addition to working as a standard optical travel mouse, according to Slippery Brick, it converts into a GPS receiver with a switch underneath, using the same USB line for its connection to the computer. It's not the first GPS mouse we've seen, but this one doesn't look like a maple bar .
