Mouse morphs into a disco ball

Japan's nutty SolidAlliance does it again

Akihabara News

We're seriously beginning to question the sanity of the people at Japan's SolidAlliance. (And that says a lot, coming from us.) It's one thing to make devices using fake gold , rubber duckies and UFO detectors . But a crystal ball for a mouse?

The "Choikawadeco Mouse," which Akihabara News translates to mean "a little bit cute," is one of several new bling-infected mice just released--and, in our opinion, the most over the top. On the other hand, if you're into doing DDR on your mouse pad , this disco-ball wannabe could be just the accessory you've been looking for. And as we've noted before, " SolidAlliance " sounds more like a '70s band than a computer company anyway.
