The World's Most Expensive Mouse

Every now and then we happen to come across some products aimed directly at those people who have so much money that they really don't know what to do with it. So, if you've already got a yacht, the latest pimped up Brabus Mercedes, a private jet and, why not, your own island, then you probably can also afford a computer mouse worth 24,180 US dollars, namely the "Diamond Flower" model developed by the well-known Swiss manufacturer of weird and extravagant mouses.

So, why is this thing so extremely expensive? Well, the main reason is probably the fact that the "Diamond Flower" is cast from 18-carat white gold and set with 59 brilliants. And we're not talking about some fake or minuscule brilliants, but about 58 stones with a diameter of 2 mm and 1 with the diameter of 4 mm. Moreover, the manufacturer assures us that none of the gems is a "conflict diamond", meaning that none of them comes from certain countries sanctioned by the UN.

Besides being a real piece of jewelry, the mouse doesn't offer any impressive technical specifications. Thus, we're talking about an ordinary 3-button wheel mouse, which connects either via USB or via PS/2 to a PC or Mac system, and sports an 800 dpi resolution. This very impressive (at least at a visual level) mouse is available in 2 models, the aforementioned "Diamond Flower" model, as well as the "Scattered Diamond", which sports the same number of brilliants, but this time scattered all around the surface of the mouse. So, what do you think? Would you pay that kind of money for this thing?
