Techeblog have published a list of the Top 10 strangest computer mices. Computer mice come in all odd shapes and sizes so they decided to compile a list of the ten strangest that they have come across.


Sony VN-CX1 Mouse Phone

1. Foot Mouse

Put simply, the Foot Mouse is the strangest we�ve seen. One pedal controls movement while the other is for the clicks. Pedals are made from an injection molded plastic shell and feature a �360-degree, pressure sensitive mechanism�.

2. CP-1 USB Spy Mouse

Keep a close ear on your computer with the CP-1. Hidden inside this otherwise normal looking mouse is a condenser microphone - capable of picking up on any nearby conversations. It measures 53 x 95 x 35 mm and weighs just 75g.

3. Powerglove Mouse

Zerosign managed to convert an old Nintendo Powerglove into a fully functioning computer mouse after countless hours of wiring and hacking.

4. AMG Helmet Optical Mouse

SolidAlliance Japan presents an innovative new wireless optical mouse with a design inspired by Jean Alesi�s AMG-Mercedes Helmet.

5. NES Controller Optical Mouse

Most optical mice are boring, not this one. To make your own, you�ll need an NES controller, optical mouse, dremel tool, lots of glue, soldering gun, and four-five hours.

6. Mouse Phone

This nifty device combines both telephone and mouse into a very uncomfortable looking design. Who really wants to rest their palm on a keypad when surfing the web?

7. Mus2 Cursor Mouse

Breaking completely from the typical design for computer mice, Art. Lebedev�s Mus2 is unique to say the least. This cursor-shaped optical mouse has 800 dpi optical sensor resolution, up to 2300 fps frame speed, and is compatible with all Windows/Mac OS X systems.

8. Mario Bros Computer Mice

Available in either Mario or Goomba characters, these mice feature a 400dpi mechanical ball, USB support, and are compatible with Windows/Mac systems.

9. Street Mouse

Available in a candy red color, this BMW-styled �Street Mouse� features always on headlights and tailights that illuminate with movement. Other perks include chrome wheels, tinted windows, and 800dpi optical tracking.

10. Zero Tension Mouse

Looking more like a joystick, this USB mouse features the basic functions (scroll wheel, right/left mouse buttons), digital optical tracking, and comes in medium/large sizes. It measures 4.5 x 3.4 x 5.6 in. and is compatible with MAC/PC computers.
