Mice belt buckles for extreme geeks

Circuit board neck-ties step aside. Someone has created something even geekier — belt buckles using old computer mice.

It all started when the designer, a belt maker, was throwing away a box of old mice. He then realised that these devices were about the same size as the belt buckles he usually makes. Hence, a new way of showing off your inner geek was born.

Apple fans can enjoy these treasures as well — the designer also created Mac variants, ranging from the older Apple Pro mice to the Mighty Mouse (no, not the cartoon). He hasn't created Razer versions yet, but we're hoping for a glowing Death Adder edition.

Sadly, the belt comes apart the normal way; there's no left-clicking or scrolling involved for unbuckling.

Head on over here if you want to get your hands on one of these belts. The Compaq version costs AU$19.35, while the Mac belts are dearer, naturally, at AU$21.28.
