Soap

This project for a wireless mouse controlled by rolling it around inside a cloth sack is very cool--they're calling it soap, because it's like rolling a bar of soap in your hand. Cheap and easy to make, too. Cue lots of jokes about dropping the Soap, but it does look like a really good way to control a GUI wirelessly without having to use a surface or adjust to a trackball. I'm filing it under Gaming because they tested it playing Unreal Tournament.
