Tummy Mouse Pad

Exactly what it says

It's finger-driven mouse like the ones on laptops but it is flexible and separate from the computer and can be affixed to the front of one's shirt by clips. Now you have a mouse pad on your belly.

       I assume that this is for when you don't have a suitable mousing surface next to you (such as using a laptop on a park bench or something).
Optical mice don't need a mouse pad as such - they will work on your belly anyway.
On the other hand, if you mean a touchpad, USB versions are available (albeit not flexible).
Some mad buggers have done similar things to this (such as a jacket with an mp3 player and speakers built in). If you market this as cyber-wear in a similar way, you might actually find some geeks who would buy a touch-pad-t-shirt.

       And perhaps one of those eraserhead mouse pointers for my bald head.

       And then you do a belly flop.

       I think this would be good if you were working in a hammock - but then you'd need a separate device to raise the laptop itself off your belly without causing discomfort.

       One word. Lint.
