Building a Skype phone into a mouse has indeed been done before but here’s another implementation for your perusal. This one’s got a nice 128×64-pixel LCD display, too, which ought to make it easier to see who you’re drunk-dialing after a long night of drinking Mudslides.

Billed as the first ever sliding-cover VoIP mouse, the “Skype Travel Mouse” features a USB connection, 800-DPI optical sensor, built-in mic and speaker, and automatic detection between mouse and phone mode. That is to say, if it rings and you pick it up and put it next to your ear, it’ll know to work as a phone. Magic!

It’s $35 plus $5.49 for shipping at
