The spherical mouse is like no other

The_jupiter.jpgThis Spherical Wooden Mouse throws all the rules of a standard mouse out the window. Using an accelerometer to track your movements, this rotund rodent couldn’t be more different to the typical two button, two dimensional mouse we’ve become accustomed to.

The Jupiter (all will be explained) is extra special due to the handmade effort that’s gone into it, made from Chinese flowering ash swirls in Japan’s rural Gunma prefecture, with natural wood grain and clickers that resemble Jupiter’s famous spot (make sense now?). It doesn’t look particularly ergonomic, but what’s a bit of discomfort when you have style and singularity eh?
