This is the bright version when the mouse is active – KICK ASS!

I picked up this little beauty whilst traveling through my favorite part of Japan during Macworld Expo Tokyo 2001 – Akihabara (a.k.a. “Electric Town”). Actually, I traded for it with the venerable CrazyTokyo who bought it in Akihabara…

Other colors are available (including green) but price and availability remain a mystery. We are researching both and will report back with the juice.

Are you a local? Care to enlighten us?
