OpenOffice gets a branded mouse with 18 buttons

Filed under

Have you ever looked at your mouse and thought, “I wish someone would over complicate this”? Well, your wishes have come true!

Popular open source office suite OpenOffice has partnered with a company named WarMouse to release the first mouse built specifically for the application. The mouse features a whopping 18 programmable buttons with double-click functionality. Not only will this monster help you whiz through creating new documents, but it also has 20 default profiles for programs like Photoshop, World of Warcraft and so on.

While I would have to get my hands on it before passing final judgement, seeing how close the buttons are laid out next to each other, I don’t see how this thing could be that easy to use.
