Canon has come up with a multi-purpose mouse in a recycled case, answering to the ‘sweet’ name of “X Mark I Mouse”. 

With this “3-in-1” apparatus, you can perform three functions with just one ingenious peripheral: X Mark is a high-performance wireless laser mouse, a 10-digit calculator and a numeric keypad for PC or Mac. That’s all!

As well as being innovative, smart and multi-functional, X Mark is also environment-friendly. Canon recovers plastics from its old cameras, photocopiers or printers to manufacture the case for the X Mark.

Another eco-friendly feature of this green mouse: it turns off automatically after being inactive for 30 minutes, helping to save on batteries.
