You're looking for 'soap' mouse, and its really simple, just take a tiny mouse, gut it, and put it inside a clear travel soap container, then sew it inside a sock. the motions of you swishing it around will activate the mouse. the container you put it in has to be flexible to allow you to still click the buttons.
