Trypticon Transformer Changes Into a Decepticon Assault Base Travel Mouse
By John Herrman, 5:11 AM on Thu May 21 2009


From the same folks who built the undeniably fantastic Ravage transforming USB drive we saw a few days ago, this 800-dpi Trypticon laser mouse is, quite simply, a more formidable Decepticon, and a better gadget.

A 2GB flash drive doesn't really cut it nowadays, and there's no functional reason it couldn't have carried more memory. This, on the other hand, is a fully functioning laser mouse, which works (or should work) like any other compact laser mouse. It's also a much better Transformer: sure, it's a little spindly compared to the Trypticon you might remember from your childhood, and it looks suspiciously familiar to the Grimlock Dinobot toy it's pictured with above, but it folds into an amazingly small package, and one that most importantly isn't immediately recognizable as a Transformer.

but then, you couldnt use it as a mouse...unless the laser is on one of the feet, and you had to move the dinosaur around.

pretty stupid, actually.

The Ravage USB stick is much more useful, and you can have it as a desk decoration when you're not using it. I wish it weren't so expensive--in fact, it should really be a toy and sell it for 19.99. Heck, they sell similar usb drives for less than 5 bucks. what's a little more "transforming" plastic and a Hasbro license? :)
