Set Your Mouse Upon A Mat Crafted From Solid Steel

P2220291

By Chris Scott Barr

For most people, a mouse pad is simply a piece of fabric that your mouse sits on. Sure, it might have a picture of kittens or flowers on it, but one is just as good as the next. Others like to make a statement by having something out of the ordinary to set their mouse upon. For those people, I give you the Greenspads.

These are (to my knowledge) the only mousepads to be hand-crafted from solid steel. That’s right, someone actually makes each individual one by hand. The finishing process is said to craft the perfect surface for laser mice. They have a variety of different shapes and sizes (each hefty enough to be used as a real-life weapon if needed), though I highly recommend the Ravenholm. If you’ve ever been to Ravenholm, then you’ll appreciate the design. Prices range from $35-$50 for the available models. You can also contact them for custom work if you don’t see something that suits your fancy.

    They can be handy when you don't know what your mousing surface is gonna be, for example for laptop users or on lanparties :)

    As much as I enjoy not using one, my current keyboard drawer has almost a rubbery surface. While the mouse tracks just fine, it's not the easiest to move. Thus I'm stuck with an ugly old mouse pad :(

    I bet this would be the straw that would break my desk's back. And $50 for the one actually cool enough to make me want to buy it. Where is the weight listed?
