Mice belt buckles unfasten your inner geek

Sadly, the belt still opens up the normal way; there's no left-clicking or scrolling involved for unbuckling.

Circuit board and MP3 storage neckties step aside. Someone has created something even geekier--belt buckles made of old computer mice.

It all started when the designer, a Texas maker of leather goods, was throwing away a box of old mice. He realized the devices were about the same size as the belt buckles he wears. Hence was born a new way of showing off your inner geek.

Apple fans can enjoy these treasures, as well--the designer also created Mac variants, ranging from the older Apple Pro mice to the Mighty Mouse (no, not the cartoon). He hasn't created Razer versions yet, but we're hoping for a glowing Death Adder edition .

Each buckle measures about 4.25 inches by 2.5 inches and will fit a belt up to 1.75 inches. Sadly, the belt comes apart the normal way; there's no left-clicking or scrolling involved for unbuckling.

Head on over to the creator's Etsy shop if you wish to get your hands one of these belt buckles. They will set you back at least $20 apiece.
