Coffin Shaped Mouse

Coffin Mouse By Christen da Costa

Zspire has introduced one of the most morbid looking – and named – mouse ever. The Aluminum Coffin mouse is constructed of metal, metal alloys and plastic. It weights about 165 grams, measures 3″x4.5″x1.125″.

Zspire also plans the release of a copper version that will set you back $150. You can custom design (takes 25 days to process) a mouse by adding a logo or engraving, and can modify the buttons and cover with a satin aluminum, urban grass, white light, canvas blue, or iron gate finish.

The manufacturer does not recommend the mouse for gaming as it runs at 800 dpi.

Should set you back $120 for the aluminum version.

Bone Conduction Speakers

Bone Conduction SpeakersBy Christen da Costa

If it ain’t good enough to have just a rear view mirror in your motorcycle helmet, well now you can have speakers too. Software developer Nippon MMI Technology Inc. has designed a bone conduction speaker that is now safe enough to place in your helmet. Previous in helmet speakers had never met safety standards due to their coil and magnet design. Nippon’s speaker system uses piezoelectric ceramic which is apparently soft enough to not cause damage to your head in case of impact.

The speaker system will run about $50, but is only available in Japan and South Korea. Nippon is in talks to bring the product to the US sometime soon.
