Now, this is what we call a mouse! Continuing the series of collaborations between top design studio nendo and electronics maker Elecom, the Kandenchi is a wireless mouse that looks like a battery! In Japanese "kandenchi" means dry battery cell and this mouse is indeed rechargeable in nature. The design isn't just about appearances, though, but integrates surprisingly well with functionality. The positive terminal on the top is your left-click button and on the side is the right-click and scroll.
Clearly super compact and portable, you will find this mouse particularly useful for spaces where you don't have much horizontal room, such as when traveling on trains or planes. There is also a detachable mini USB cable so you can plug the mouse into a mobile device for recharging, just like a battery! Check out that clever micro receiver too!
