Even though it’s facing tough competition from mobile devices, the PC is far from being dead, and many people are still trying to reinvent it. Such is the case with Przemysław Strzelczyk, whose team is apparently working on a PC that fits inside a regular mouse: The Mouse-Box.

MyBroadband reports that the device can be used anywhere a screen is available, including at work, letting users easily switch between simple mouse mode, or PC mode, for a more personal and private computing experience.

The device, which has yet to be made available in stores, should have a 1.4GHz ARM Cortex processor inside, 128GB of storage, microHDMI support, Wi-Fi connectivity and 2 USB 3.0 ports. Additionally, Mouse-Box creators are also working on a wireless mouse pad charger accessory for it.

It’s not clear when the Mouse-Box will launch, or whether the PC will be released via crowdfunding services such as Kickstarter or Indiegogo at first. The Mouse-Box team told the publication the product is in prototype phase for the time being, and that it’s looking for a partner to make the PC available commercially.

A video further explaining how such a mouse PC should work follows below.
