While the mouse is far from the biggest power hog when it comes to computer peripherals, a team of Dutch researchers seem out to prove that every little bit helps, and they're now putting their solar-powered mouse to the test. Dubbed the "Sole Mio," the mouse is designed to be placed near a window when it's not in use, which the researchers hope will give it enough juice to keep it from running dry during a busy workday. While there's no word on when it might actually see a commercial release, the researchers seem to be fairly confident in it, even going so far as to include the Dutch Minister of Housing, Spatial Planning and the Environment in their initial test group.
