This Is Either the Best Mouse or Worst Controller EverS

The Shogun Bros. Chameleon X-1 Mouse is just like a regular mouse with 7 buttons and a scroll wheel. Well, until it's not. Once you flip the mouse over, there's a full-fledged, Playstation-like game controller underneath. Best of both worlds?

I'm not so sure. The controller's analog sticks look frighteningly PSP-nubbish, the triggers would probably be horrible to use and that odd mouse shape could prove uncomfortable, but in a quick flash where you'd like to use a controller over a mouse (and when is that, again?), I'm sure the X-1 could be manageable. But if you're a controller nerd or mouse man, it looks like it'd probably be the worst of both worlds.

But! Interesting idea Shogun Bros. There's no price or shipping date yet (which screams vaporware), so we'll just have to wait and see if there's a chance for a hybrid like this to succeed. [Shogun Bros via Engadget]
