This option from the Wireless Mobile Mouse 3500 Studio Series was designed by Australian artist Kirra Jamison.

This design, which resembles a stained-glass window, was crafted by U.K. artist Jonny Wan.

Compatible with both Mac and Windows 7, the Wireless Mobile Mouse 3500 Studio Series connects to computers via USB nano receiver, not Bluetooth.

Seen in one of Brooklyn artist Mike Perry's designs, the Studio Series Mouse includes Microsoft's BlueTrack technology.

Here's the Wireless Mobile Mouse seen in Perry's other design offering. When testing out the mice, I noticed immediately that these peripherals have a smoother surface on top than the normally glossy plastic found on a mouse.

The Wireless Mobile Mouse 3500 Series, seen here in Swedish artist Linn Olofsdotter's pattern, is designed to fit well in both left and right hands, but they felt smaller in my hand than most other mice.

Outfitted in this photo with Maine-based Matt Moore's geometrical pattern, the Mobile Mouse 3500 runs on a AA battery, which is included in the box. Microsoft promises up to eight months of battery life with one battery.
