by Gareth Mankoo

Atelier Wazakura of Japan decided to add a fair amount of organic splendor to the otherwise mundane mouse. With the Saddle Leather Computer Mouse, the company believes in a completely new approach of combining man and machine with an interface, many of us owe to the recently deceased pillar of technology. So by introducing leather in the being of the mouse, the company most likely dreams of extending the fiber that connects us all. The Leather Mouse or Kawanezumi is made with hand-trimmed panels of Saddle Leather that have been fitted on the exterior of a regular wireless mouse body. Specs and price after the jump.
