The Sole Mio is the world's first solar-powered mouse. As with anything solar-powered, man-made energy is conserved; in this case, it has been estimated that hundreds of millions of batteries could be saved. It runs off of a combination of natural and artificial light. The mouse is currently being tested in the Netherlands.

Implications - This trend signals towards the rise of eco products that will reduce waste and help the environment. The world's energy sources are dwindling, so people have to look for alternative sources of power, such as solar or wind. Considering the eco movement that has progressed throughout the past few years, it only makes sense that companies will continue to create these eco products for the future.
