The latest thing, this mouse they've plunked on my desk.

It has no ball. It releases a magic red light from its belly and, I don't know, probably counts the nanoseconds until the magic red light returns to the womb, then does some quick math to figure out how far the light must have wandered. And it's translucent. It glows red.

It vibrates. With the throttle open wide, it hums and thumps over every line and button on my screen. A clickable bit is a clunk; a drag is a buzz.

But I need a mouse that howls at my howlers and hrms at doubtful phrases. Like that one.
