Shogun Bros. Chameleon X-1 mouse is a controller in disguise

We have no idea how well this particular peripheral works, but we're thinking about buying the Shogun Bros. Chameleon X-1 based on novelty alone. See, up on top? It's a seven-button wireless mouse. Flip it over? It's a 14-button gaming controller. Put it on it's side? Panini press. (Not really.)

The device sports some impressive statistics for its mouse-half, but we're not convinced those tiny, open-faced buttons on its flipside would serve us very well during a lengthy gaming session. You'll have to decide for yourself if the bipolar controller deserves your $55 when it comes out in Q1 2011 -- we might have gone for it, provided it really did have sandwich-grilling capabilities.
