Brains in a Jar Steampunk Computer Mouse

This is one of the sickest and slickest Steampunk mods we’ve seen yet here on ye’ old gadgette blog. It’s the classic Victorian curiosity “brain in a jar” transformed into a USB optical computer mouse. Peter Balch, the creator of this hack originally tried to use fake eyeballs for mouse buttons but they were confused by the sunlight- I think he’s better off without them.

The “brain” was made from Fimo modeling clay. The mouse’s wire is covered in a shoelace for effect. Nice job, dear chap.
