MINICARS: Car-shaped mice and USB drives by Camshop

Camshop Nissan Skyline hakosuka mouse05

Is your desktop a little dull? Perhaps you need a car-shaped mouse so you can make “vroom-vroom” noises as you move your cursor across the screen. Camshop is a Japanese company that makes computer peripherals that look like real cars. 

Do you want a mouse that looks like a hakosuka Skyline? Maybe a Toyota 2000GT would be more form fitting for your palm. There are new cars too, like the R35 GT-R, Toyota 86, and Subaru WRX STI. Each one is highly detailed, has light-up head- and taillights, and is only identifiable as a mouse from the scroll wheel protruding from its hood.

If mice aren’t your thing, Camshop makes USB drives as well, in all of the shapes above and more. There’s even a speaker shaped like a VW Microbus or a charger shaped like the Shinkansen. Camshop has plenty of stuff for the non-Japanese car enthusiast too, from Fiat 500s to Lamborghinis.

For kids, Camshop also makes rolling carrying cases shaped like your favorite cars. They are, of course, in superdeformed style. Every item in the catalog is very cool, but like many cool Japanese things, there unfortunately does not appear to be any provision for buying these items in English.

    2000GT probably has the best ergonomics for the hand, but they’re all definitely cool.

    I have been using a 370Z mouse for years, but want a Devil Z mouse – as long as it doesn’t keep trying to crash my computer.

    No S2000…???!!!

    Those mice look cool, but probably aren’t great for daily use. No, the Japanese reliability won’t let you down, but the ergonomics will. These are more novelty items than usable ones, but neat just the same.

    I used a C6 Corvette mouse daily for like 2 years and it really wasn’t that uncomfortable considering how angular the back of that car is. I agree that the 2000GT would be the best choice for ergonomics
