Like Jelly in your Hand

Build a new mousetrap, and the world will beat a path to your door. Build a new mouse (the computer-type, that is), and the world will put their hands all over it. That's just what Jelfin wants to have happen with the company's new ball-shaped mouse that comes with a gel cover. In addition to being washable (keep your stinking H1N1 germs to yourself, thank you), the gel covering - and the ball-shape - make the mouse very comfortable to hold in your hand.

Jelfin CEO, Nick Pajic, says, "What cashmere has done for the sweater, we think the soft, gel cover has done for the mouse." Maybe, but I don't think I'm going to be able to convince my wife to start wearing gel sweaters any time soon. Because the covering is clear, the surface of the mouse underneath can be customized in a variety of ways, the limit being only your imagination (and physics). The mouse retails for $34.95, comes with a protective can carrying case, and is available in several different colors.
