New Gadget: Optical Mouse/Skype Phone Combo

I only delve into gadget territory occasionally, but this one is too good to pass up.

Sony announced the launch of the MouseTalk (trying to find an English link), a new VAIO PC peripheral that acts as both an optical mouse and an Internet phone. The clamshell mouse, which will be Skype certified, flips open to become an Internet phone to make and receive calls around the world through Skype. Features include: mouse wheel controlled mute, volume and number select controls, echo-cancellation technology and a hands-free mode.

I think this is brilliant and I want one for my Mac.
