Postmodern Mouse

Post modernity spawned a bunch of meta art – art about art, books about books, pizzas featuring mini pizzas…

It’s the room full of mirrors effect where your image stretches out to eternity being repeated an infinite number of times… A celebration of infinite recursion. And it’s epitomised by this mouse. A mouse mouse. Found here. From instructables.

Of mice, and monkeys?

Engadget has compiled a list of stupid gadgets that should be avoided at all costs. There seems to be a particular focus on mice.

Like this one:

It sure is dumb. It’s a red piggy mouse. Some of them are quite cool. I would buy them. But I’m not sure why, or why they were ever invented. Like the Mouse Scale… for those people wanting to keep track of how much their hand weighs?

Luckily it comes with a cover for when your hands are feeling a little fat…

The real winner, as far as I’m concerned, is the USB powered “monkey” hand warmers.

For those looking for a little monkey magic – there’s a matching footwarmer. At $46US for the set – plus postage. A great Christmas present. Shame I live in the tropics.
