Car mouse drives in for net calls

We were pleased with our USB hamster wheel, but it wasn’t long before the pangs for another ridiculous desktop companion returned with a vengeance. It took hours of rummaging through sushi memory keys, but this morning we found the star we were craving – a car-shaped VOIP mouse.The Street Mouse is packed with features that make a mockery of its boring ‘ergonomic’ brethren. A scroll wheel sits neatly on top of the bonnet, the headlights and taillights both flash as you click, and some built-in speakers blast out your MP3s.It also gets a tech gold star for VOIP compatibility. The mouse doesn’t contain any Skype software, but plug it in via USB and you can use its built-in microphone and speaker to conduct the most surreal conversation of your life.Obviously, shouting into a mini car doesn’t always suggest you’re the model of professionalism, so there’s even a 3.5mm headphone jack in the wheel for a bit more privacy.
