Instructables
Hacked travel-size (hardware) mouse + taxidermied (wetware) mouse = Mouse Mouse!
Fully functional, and furry!

Warning: this project involves taxidermy, dremels, and sometimes graphic pictures of dead animals. While there are no guts in this tutorial, viewer discretion is still advised. If you are offended by this entire idea, please peruse the wallet contest or the laser cutter contest instead.

Step 1: Acquire mice

Obtain a small travel-size (hardware) mouse. This one is a wired mouse that is way to small to use comfortably every day, but perfect for going inside of a mouse.

Obtain a similarly-sized (wetware) mouse. These are commonly available fresh or frozen from pet stores, or any other place that sells reptile food. It's easier to fit a small object into a large mouse than a large object into a small mouse, so err on the side of caution. You can always fill extra space with cotton balls.

If you've got an optical (hardware) mouse, make sure to choose a pale-furred (wetware) mouse for lightest skin pigment - this will be important later.

So that's exposure to a million bored-commuters.

If this was a stuffed animal mouse/ toy mouse I could laugh about this, but although this mouse already didn't live anymore before you used it for this I still think that this is horrible. I think that you should even have respect for the remains and if you feed it to a reptile, there is at least some way in which nature uses it, but this is to me, disgusting.

This is similar to an artist in my country, Tinkebel, she has used her cat which passed away for an artwork which most people thought was disgusting. I don't know what to think of it, I think it's just to shock people and I think the same of this too.

If you can use a stuffed animal, why don't you do that? That's at least funny.

The mouse was already dead, he just put another use for it than feeding reptiles

Of course. Trying this with a dead human fetus wouldn't be so fun.

Although I can appreciate you talent, maybe an instructable for a fake mouse will appeal to those less squeamish or those against dragging dead animals across a table to finish their taxes (seems a little foreboding).
"...finish their taxes..."

Dare I say...'tax'-idermy?
;D
:( nice concept but using a real mouse is just sad

I want to make one and hook it to my daughters computer and catch it on vidio !
AAAAAAAAAAaAAAAAAAGH....oh right it's not real

Looks pretty freaky though if only there was a motor in the computer mouse and scare the heck out of my mum. Lol
there are plans for a motorized mouse on make magazine but without the skin.
Nice(ish) idea can/will there be a v2? Maybe use a fake mouse instead, it didnt freak me out but I found it a little weird
