Every Christmas there are certain people on my list who are very difficult to buy for. All year I hope that they'll be badly behaved, so that I can cross them off, but it inevitably gets to mid-December and I'm scurrying around the stores like a radioactive chicken desperately searching for something interesting to buy. Well, now I know what I could get for the discerning geeks in my life: one of these custom-made wireless mice from Tyukalov.
Currently hand-made in three different designs, each with leather inlays and metal highlights, they not only look good but also incorporate the standard features of optical sensor and scroll wheel. Apparently made from "materials traditionally used by NASA and other space agencies", they come in a custom presentation case. Slava Tyukalov, their maker, has also put together the hilarious Matreshka covert USB flash drive shown after the cut.
Every item is individual numbered; prices on application.
