We’ve seen plenty of round mice, including Apple’s infamous puck, and many devices that derive power from a yo-yo-like pull string mechanism. So we’re not quite sure why we’ve never seen those two concepts married before. In retrospect, a wireless mouse charged by the kinetic energy of using it as a yo-yo seems like a painfully obvious idea. As an added bonus, this tiny pointer with an LCD battery gauge makes you get up every so often and get your limbs moving — thus saving you from chronic back pain. Huzzah! Of course, there’s no guarantee you’ll ever actually see one of these on shelves. Check out the source for a few more pics.

Manufacturers are never going to agree on a universal charging standard, but Innergie makes that empty promise easier to stomach with their Magic Cable Trio that’s got you covered whether you need a microUSB, miniUSB or Apple dock connector cable.
The tips all daisy-chain together, creating a single cable when you need to use it with an Apple device. But as they’re individually removed to gain access to the micro and miniUSB adapters, the hinged design ensures the unused tips don’t go missing in action. And it’s just $20, so if you stash one in your drawer and in your bag you’ll always be covered for any charging or syncing emergency.
