You can follow the fun on their BLogitech site where, if you answer a question correctly, may land you a MX1100 Cordless Laser Mouse.

The Asus Vit W1 Laser Mouse does everything else your old mouse can do plus it has a pulse rate sensor that lies beneath its plastic skin. The wireless device has a 30 ft. range, 5 buttons, a mini-USB receiver, and 12 dpi. We don’t know about you, but just knowing that we will be monitored would make us nervous and have an elevated heart rate. Especially if the little happy face starts to frown.

Simpson motorcycle fans will love this helmet that is actually a mouse made by motopuran. The device is licensed and built to scale with an optical system of 600 dpi, left and right click buttons, and a scroll wheel. Choose between black, silver, red, and yellow. Compatible with Windows 98 and newer and Mac OSX, the USB mouse comes with a removable cord for displaying for ¥2,380 (~$22.00.) That’s pretty clever but we think we will wait for the Harley version.
