The mouse mouse is very creepy and definitely not for everyone. This computer gizmo is actually made using a real mouse! Its innards are removed, the skin is preserved, and a computer mouse is inserted. There is a small rip in the mouse's flesh to allow the scroll wheel through.

Implications - Taxidermy is still alive and well, and with the creation of new gadgets and gizmos, is evolving in a way that integrates the macabre practice into the world of man-made technology. Dead animals have an edginess that makes for a unique selling point that some consumers appreciate. To reach these people in the new era, companies could consider creating tech-infused taxidermy products.
