It’s nice when products are able to do more than one thing. We usually call that convergence and it sort of makes sense, like when your phone also browses the Interwebs. That makes sense. Or if your printer can also scan; that too makes sense. We’re not so sure about the Massager Mouse. Officially, it’s a computer mouse that offers up to 10 vibration levels and 2 vibration patterns and is meant to “relieve stress”. But, uh, it’s being displayed at EroFrame 2012 which happens to be a sex show. So when the product description includes “ambidextrous design” as a feature, we know what they’re hoping you’ll do with it. Even its shape and the use of a mood-setting LED is clearly designed with one thing in mind, and we don’t really believe that it’s stress relief. Although, really, stress would be relieved as a side-effect, we suppose.
All this being said, if we ever see that thing on anyone’s desk, you can be sure we won’t touch it with a 10 ft pole. There’s no price or availability information but we hear it’ll also be at CES, so we’ll try to update you on that when we go.
