Elecom MENDO Kandenchi Mouse is Actually the Size of an AA Battery

Some mouse designs are meant to soothe your hands and provide ergonomic relief, while others are meant to provide an aesthetically pleasing look to your desk. And then there's this one: the Elecom MENDO Kandenchi Mouse.

Definitely an odd design, the Elecom MENDO Kandenchi Mouse takes on the shape of a regular AA battery. It is compatible with every operating system out there from Linux to Windows and offers the same functionality as any ordinary mouse. One difference, however -- which can be gleaned from the images -- is that you click the MENDO Kandenchi mouse with your thumb, as opposed to your index finger.

This interesting computer peripheral, which weighs in at 32 g, will be available in white or black and set to go on sale in Japan sometime this month. Stats for Battery-Shaped Peripherals Trending: Older & Chilly
