Sony VN-CX1, Optical Skype Mouse

With every addition to the VAIO series of electronics, Sony has taken breaths of competitors away. This time they have treaded further and gone on to combine two gadgets with much success. The VN-CX1 is a wired USB optical mouse which doubles up as a flip-open Skype (VOIP) phone. It weighs just 67 grams and measures 45.5mm x 23.9mm x 89.2mm. To indicate an incoming call it blinks and flipping it open reveals a microphone and speaker for communication. It comes in five colors and is currently available only in Japan.
