If you’re a regular reader of Cool Mom Tech, you know that we love when form mixes with function in our gadgetry. Yes, cool tech has officially become the new black–there are designer laptops, designer laptop bags, designer iPad cases, and now thanks to Microsoft, designer mice.

The Wireless Mobile Mouse 3500 Studio Series — Artist Edition is a limited edition mouse that adds a splash of color to your computing. Five premier artists from the fashion, print and graphic design world including Jonny Wan, Mike Perry, and Kirra Jamison were selected to create six beautiful and funky mice patterns. That’s the form part.

The function part is where Microsoft’s tech expertise comes into play. The mouse boasts a whopping eight-month battery life and also uses what they call its “BlueTrack” technology, which basically means it works on any surface — countertop, carpet, couch, you name it. I haven’t had the experience of using one of these yet, but for $29.99, I may just get two. – Jeana
