15 Weird Mice You Have Probably Never Used!

world's weirdest mouseUnlike the mice in the previous galleries (here and here), these are mice that not only look weird, but also have some extra functionality that makes them doubly weird.

Some of these mice may be required in specialized professions that require precision cursor control, but many of them seem to have been designed by people who just went overboard trying to cram functionality into a normal mouse. Some of the extra functionality may have sounded good on paper, but the popularity of these mice is a testament to how not everything that looks good on paper eventually pans out in practice!

This is a gallery of some of the weirdest functions crammed into a mouse. If you know of any others, don't hesitate to sound off in the comments!
