Buffalo BOMU-W24A/BL Gyroscopic Mouse Works On Desk, In Air

Buffalo's got this mouse, right, and you can use it both on your desk an in the air. Given the easy-to-remember name of BOMU-W24A/BL, the mouse makes use of gyroscopic witchcraft to let users flail the mouse in the air. The software that powers the mouse is only available for Windows, so Steve Jobs will have to find another method to control his exciting presentations. It should hit Japanese stores later this month for the not outrageous at all price of about $175.

So, $175 for a mouse... Ok, being able to use it in mid-air is a neat trick, but a trick worth that many dead presidents and/or switching to Windows for? I'd be hard-pressed to say "yes," I think.
