I'm impressed. Even if you take away the "Green" aspect of it, it still never needs to be charged or have the batteries changed!

Yeah, the cork part seems to be a bit of a gimmick, just like making car panels out of laminated hemp; if they want eco-friendly, just make it out of 100% recycled materials.

However, given that power and energy technology has always been what drags things down, any sort of idea to counter the limits of batteries is ingenuity that demands praise. A wireless mouse that basically recharges itself? That would DEFINITELY have a market, well outside of just the techno-hippies. It's an example of "green" being outright "smart."

Well for the mouse part, this sure beats the logitech mouse that can last 3 years on batteries.

heh this just killed logitechs "batteries last 3 years" thing as the more you use this the faster the battery gets charged. This is epic.

OMG I just saved 1 watts of my computer power by not using a mouse that needs its own power! JK JK.

But in the end this is good. I'm tired of switching out AA batteries in my wireless mouse and if everybody in the world used this the amount of batteries in landfills would probably see a good decrease and we would see some kind of energy savings (even though I find it hard to imagine a mouse taking a lot of electricity).

Cork would get dirty pretty fast I like the idea of self recharging and if it only supports Bluetooth and is good enough for gaming - that would be great!

batteries do require energy to manufacture, deliver, buy etc....

Soooo true. Nothing like playing and FPS in the middle of a heated battle and you move your cross hair only to have it move 1 second after you already moved it. Then you get fragged. End of Story. I betcha go pissed off too. Everyone's gone throug this before.
