Remember these Ryou Collection PC cases that were inspired by the Japanese bento box, lacquered in the traditional Urushi technique? Now there's a matching USB mouse, beautifully finished with the same finish that not only looks beautiful, but supposedly offering some anti-bacterial properties* as well...

Two finishes are available via the Ryou website. Just get ready to open up that wallet or check your credit limit...these start at $315 US! Just give us some hand sanitizer and our Wacom mouse for now.

*Urushi is derived from the sap of the urushi tree (Rhus verniciflua), a variety of poison sumac. This tree mainly grows in East Asia including Japan, China and the Korean Peninsula. Its main ingredient is the poisonous substance urushiol, which can cause a severe allergic reaction. However, once it dries, urushi lacquer is very hard, strong, insoluble and resistant to alkali, acid, salinity and alcohol.
