Tech-savvy steampunk enthusiasts are going to love the Rhombus Maximus mouse. This mouse is made from copper, brass and walnut wood and comes with an accompanying flash drive.

I would really like to see a functioning prototype of the Rhombus Maximus. This mouse looks incredibly cool and would add an artistic edge to computing. Who would've thought that the future of computing could lye in the past?

Implications - Consumers in contemporary society are attracted to designs that feature an element of history. Products that contain an older aspect are appealing to those who want a reminder of simpler times. Companies trying to increase their appeal could focus on this when coming out with new items.
