Pull The Pin, Throw The Mouse

By Luke Anderson

When using a grenade, there are two very simple steps to follow. Unfortunately, if you mix up the steps and end up throwing the pin, it very well may be the last thing you do. Fortunately with this Hand Grenade Mouse, you don’t have to worry about blowing your arm off.

It seems that someone got a brilliant idea whilst wandering through their local surplus Army supply shop. When you think about it, many mice have a similar shape to that of your average hand grenade. So the intrepid modder sliced up the grenade, tossed in the guts of an old optical mouse, and came out with a cool looking input device. Sure, it might not be quite as ergonomic as a regular mouse, but it still looks pretty badass.

    Actually, that's not a real grenade shell. Looks like polycarb to me.

    Yes, indeed it's not a real grenade, the body is an old BB bottle I had lying around
    Right and left switches are activated like an apple mouse, by pushing down the corners about 1mm down.
    The slider plastic under both buttons does indeed have some nylon plastic to make it useable and of course, it’s a wireless mouse powered by two AAA batteries.
