New mouse has 18 buttons!

The OpenOfficeMouse mouse has 18 -- count 'em 18! -- programmable buttons, which collectively support 52 key commands. The mouse is designed to support applications, including default profiles for Writer, Calc, Impress, Base, and Draw. The monster mouse has three different button "modes." The left side of the mouse has an Xbox-style joystick. This company knows how to build mouse functionality. They just don't know when to stop

Reminds me of the Mouse Systems similar to I had one in development that had 2 buttons on each side along with the 4 on top. All were re-mappable as well, and often had combinations available like upper left side click, so you had plenty of many macro options on it. At the time it was cutting edge, but it did not take off. People seem content still with only a couple of buttons.
