3-in-1 mouse claims to do it all

A mouse, a remote, a laser pointer in one flat form

There have been many attempts to create a mouse that doubles as a presentation device, borrowing designs ranging from pens to guns and often lacking along the way. But we've never seen one quite like this three-in-one device by a Chinese company called Vavolo. (Sounds like a motor oil company.)

It claims that the gadget is a mouse, a remote, a laser pointer and a keyboard (?)--that's four in one, not three--all housed in a slim design that can fit in a PC card slot for $40. It also looks like a large-button calculator for the sight-impaired, but that's beside the point.

(Note to Vavolo: We appreciate your enthusiasm, but please ease up on the exclamation points. We counted six of them in one paragraph. Thanks.)
