  • Sorry… but the calculator is on the pc, why I have to use the mouse???…

    Dario says:
  • the keys could be more integrated in the body of the mouse, looks very 90s

    DIDI says:
  • because you often don’t have a keypad on the laptop keyboard. so i think it’s usefull

    Daria says:
  • Placing this design next to, arguably, a product designed by the cream of cool designer boffiny types – it looks rubbish.

    Think it is useful for those on the move and who cant be bothered to use their i phones..

    Pg says:
  • that will just hold some dust and making it a dirty mouse. Its not new anyway.

    Andrew fr. Sydney says:
  • working on super important document and accidentally close it while calculating…. hemmmm

    its not baaad says:
  • not a bad idea, but not a beautiful object.

    bill says:
  • I agree that it looks a tad old-school, but this would be really really useful to me (anyone else out there who spends half their life plugging data into excel spreads?!). For travel definitely, but the rest of the time, as well. I’ll get one for sure. Strikes me a bit strange that something like this came along only now!
