Buffalo gyroscope mouse

The BOMU-W24A/BL is a wireless, dual-function mouse from Japanese maker Buffalo. Reading from an optical sensor when laid flat, the W24 turns into pointer when picked up, switching to internal gyroscopes similar to those in Nintendo's Wii remote. Configuration is handled through the included Gyrotool software. The mouse has a range of 32 feet from the USB 2.0 dongle, and will last 96 hours after a nine-hour recharge in the provided cradle charger. Making use of Gyrotool requires a Windows 2000/XP computer with DirectX 8.0 or higher. The W24 goes on sale in Japan later this month at the cost of 19,780 yen ($168).
