Is it too Much to Ask for a Mouse with a Freakin' Laser Beam?

I guess it’s not too much to ask for a mouse with a freakin’ laser beam on its head…err…front because the new Kokuyo USB mouse has a laser built-in. What purpose exactly the laser is to serve I’m not sure.

I assume the manufacturer thinks it will be used to give presentations, but I have to think it wouldn’t work well for that as most presenters are standing and not necessarily near the PC. I guess you could have some fun with it by aiming it at your coworkers, but even that would get old after a few months.The mouse itself is the standard office fare with 800 dpi sensor and the laser is a 1mW class-2 good for about 25 meters. You are sure to get laser envy if the guy in the next cubicle whips out a Wicked Lasers Nexus that can be seen for 30 miles and burn the Zorro “Z” into your pants. Story and image via Engadget.
