    saw a DIY mod for this a year or two ago... didn't think someone would actually manufacture it. :p

    Yeah, I get REALLY sweaty hands from using a mouse! NOT!! It's almost as good as the solar powered torch.

    Hehe, I can never understand the whole "illuminated" mouse thing either.
    It's covered by your hand in use, and really, how often do you look at your
    hand whilst moving the cursor?

    They're the fluffy-dice of the PC-car hehe :D

    reminds me of a gamepad i almost bought, then realized what do i need this for. But I have to admit the variable air flow control is pretty sweet. :D

    same thing goes for all the lights and windows on a pc. you're supposed to be looking at your screen, not the case. ;)

    but it's all asthetics. if you were into having a flashy setup, then i think the mouse would actually go well along with an illuminated keyboard.

    Hehe, for those who suffer, read about Sweaty Palm Syndrome
    Good news guys...:eek::p
    Scary stuff eh?, maybe the air-flow mouse is the lesser of two evils ;)

    lol no joke - my brother just bought the Nyko version (that xoxide ripped off... :) )
    not only does the fan not help too much... I like to refer to it as the "mutant jelly bean" as it is a weird, uncomfortable bean of death
