You don’t have to drive to work in a Porsche to impress your coworkers. The new Porsche mouse pad and mouse will be the talk of the water cooler and the envy of fellow cubicle dwellers.

Designed in the Porsche studio at Weissach, the new mouse pad takes its cue from the automaker’s luxury vehicles, using the same leather found in the cars’ interiors.  Sporting an embossed logo at its top, the mouse pad is shaped in the form of a Porsche crest. The mouse pad retails for $100.

The perfect complement to the mouse pad is the new mouse. Taking its inspiration from the Porsche 911, the mouse is adorned with the Porsche logo. It’s PC- and Mac-compatible, and comes with an aluminum scroll wheel, high resolution 2,000 dpi sensor, 2.4 GHz technology and plug-and-play installation. The mouse also retails for $100.

You can order both online at Porsche Design Driver’s Selection.

For the ultimate Mini fan in the house, the car maker has just released some new gadgets to keep him/her entertained when working on their computer.

Mini has just released some new flash drives, a 4GB unit which is shaped like a British Bulldog and a 8GB unit shaped like an ignition key. The outer ring of the key glows when it’s in use.

Coolest of all is a dual-purpose computer mouse, which has a model of the Mini displayed in a clear casing section. So if you are a big Mini fan or know someone who is, then these might just be what you’ve been waiting for.

If you’re tired about hearing of all the automotive recalls that seem to be hitting the news daily, you’ll want to get behind the Motormouse. So it’s not the ideal family vehicle, but it will look good next to your PC.

Inspired by the Porsche 911, you may have seen the Motormouse on the BBC TV show “Dragon’s Den.” Available in three colors – silver, red and black – you’ll want to test drive this beauty at the office, or give it to Dad this Father’s Day.

Fitting right in the palm of your hand, the Motormouse comes equipped with a 2.4 GHz USB receiver so it can wirelessly connect to your keyboard. It also comes with a host of standard features, such as a truck that actually opens (not big enough for sporting equipment or luggage, but it can store batteries and its receiver).

Designed to catch the attention of your cubicle mates, this superbly crafted classic sports car features exquisite detail, a slim silhouette for superior comfort and a high-quality paint finish with chrome alloy wheels. And you’ll be flying through document pages and Internet sites while you’re behind the wheel – the ultra-wide ‘spare tire’ scroll wheel, that is.

If you’re planning on giving it away, the Motormouse’s special gift box comes complete with a soft carrying pouch, super-glide mouse mat and batteries. Buy if for about $50 on the Motormouse site.
