Feel like listening to your favourite FM station on your computer? Just plug in the Mousecaster.
Developed by US-Israeli company Smartec, the gadget combines a mouse with a built-in FM radio. Ingeniously, the cable acts as an antenna.
It took the company two years to work out how to combine a mouse with a radio and make sure that both worked perfectly and were easy to use.
“We haven’t taken a new idea,” said a spokesman, “we’ve just combined two ideas. Nobody had thought to do this before.
I wonder why…
The Mousecaster is available in the US for $35 if you feel inclined to buy such a wondefully useful gadget. I am just not sure there is ANY market for this. Feel free to prove me wrong.
