Flat Pack CD Mouse

Here’s a cool concept for the road warriors out there who need to move their gear as efficiently as possible.  The Flat Pack Mouse from designer Taewon Hwang allows you to store your mouse in your empty, unused and pretty much obsolete CD/DVD drive while traveling.  Get on site, fold your mouse , insert the flat USB receiver and away you go. It’s constructed using a mix of polyimide tactile sensors, flat organic batteries, and polycarbonate.  It’s only a concept at the moment, but I’d buy one ! 🙂

  2. @RainyDayInterns – if I’m using on my lap I like the trackpad, if I’m using on a desk I like a mouse 🙂

    @Fred – I’m waiting for a laptop that folds up and stores inside my mouse 🙂

  3. What happens when you turn-on the laptop to eject the Flat Pack Mouse and the laptop spins-up the thing and the imbalance destroys the drive?

  4. Not to worry phil, even if this was possible (thin film batteries have yet to be used in a commercial application, and have nowhere enough capacity to run a mouse for more than a few minutes) yanko design is a website for “designers”, not engineers. None of the products are ever produced, with the exception of the optimus keyboard (if you haven’t heard of it, it’s a $1,200 keyboard).
