Japanese geek trio blow up mice
The inflatable input device
For the traveller, a mouse's bulk makes it a difficult peripheral to pack. Now some Japanese designers have come up with a flat-pack design.
The Jellyclick mouse: just a load of hot air?
The trio’s Jellyclick mouse is inflatable and... er... that’s about it. It can be rolled or folded to sit inside your shirt pocket or chucked into your laptop bag.
Jellyclick’s designers say they designed the concept mouse with an emphasis on portability. Because, while miniature mice are already available, they aren’t very easy to use compared to a full-size wireless rodent.
No information’s provided about how it actually works - well, it is still a concept. But, the designers should get full marks for creativity.
