Thanko's mouse has a built-in speaker

Tokyo-based crap gadget maker Thanko continues to amaze. The company today announced [JP] a mouse with an integrated speaker, believe it or not (Thanko already gave us the “mid-air” mouse, the USB cooler mouse, a heated mouse, and a liquid mouse).

This new model is supposed to replace conventional speakers that take away so much valuable space on your desk, but I doubt this will happen. Thanko also throws in a mic so you can use the mouse/speaker for your Skype calls, too.

The 1000dpi/USB mouse is already listed on Thanko’s Japanese website and costs $20 (including the mic). Ask import/export specialist Geek Stuff 4 U if you live outside Japan and are interested in this thing for some reason.
