I logged on to the halfbakery from a lap top computer on the weekend, (I find it's just not possible to be bored and next to a computer without perusing at least a couple of ideas), and I found that I missed using a mouse more than I thought I would.
Now I know you can get a plug in mouse to use with a lap top, but why not an inflatable/deflatable mouse that lives in a tiny compartment inside?

See this way you wouldn’t miss your mou...I mean your mouse wouldn’t miss you.

       Die Fledermaus....Man, that went right over my head until you pointed it out. I think it's icing on the cake.   

       I suppose it goes without saying that the tiny storage compartment would be generally known as the *mouse hole*. Or, perhaps, *Bat Cave*, in keeping with the Fledermaus theme.

       Do you inflate it using Die Nieber Lungs?

       The HP OmniBook had a mouse that "folded out" from the side of the computer. It was on a swing arm such that there were no actual electronics (other than the buttons) in the "mouse" itself -- the movement sensor was on the other end of the arm inside the computer. It was a neat idea, but unfortunately not inflatable.
