If you're going to hold something in your hand for over 8 hours a day and have it part of your desk landscape, it should at least be nice too look at—and if you're lucky, functional, too. We're talking about the humble computer mouse; specifically, the new Microsoft optical mouse designed by Philippe Starck, which we had a chance to take for a test drive.

As we mentioned back in June, Philippe Starck has worked up a USB optical mouse for Microsoft that cunningly hides a scroll wheel in the coloured line that bisects it and includes the requisite two buttons. Comes in two colors, Blue and Orange, and when plugged in it lights up.

After 2 days of use, we?re pretty impressed?accurate, fast and looks great. Best part, it matches the silvery finishes on our PowerBook and Sony VAIO.
