The mouse that ate a label printer

Casio comes up with one weird combo device.

Brando

It's impossible to guess what the mad scientists at Hong Kong-based Brando will come up with next, and all bets are certainly off when it comes to the mouse. Already, various manufacturers have combined the once-simple peripheral with everything from phones and keypads to hand warmers and back massagers .

But leave it to Brando to find the first "USB Label Mouse Printer" from Casio to distribute. All you need to do is write your message on the computer and transfer it to the mouse through its USB connection, and the little guy will spit it out on thermal paper in the same TrueType font. It could be great for making fake fortune cookie missives.
