Leave it to the Japanese in their never-ending and ever-expanding search for cuteness to call a mouse a fish, where Elecom's latest mouse has been named the Japanese word for a fish: Sakana. It's the O Sakana Mouse POI (that's its official name), and except for its unusual design, there's nothing fishy about it—it's a conventional optical mouse.

With its bleary eyes peering out at you from the left and right mouse buttons and its stylized tail, Sakana's trio of cheery primary colors give it a marketable palette in group shots, and its matching USB cable reel might make it popular with certain travelers who would rather be cute than cool. Not us.
