A mouse in the spirit of Emacs
The 18-button mouse.

It's for Open Office. Those 18 buttons are configurable, double-clickable, and have 3 modes. One of the buttons is for giving you a pdf cheatsheet of what the buttons do. It's got a profile (which I think means a button configuration) for World of Warcraft.

Link thanks to Geek Press.

Oh my. How very, very wrong.

But you have a typo; where you wrote "emacs" I think you meant "vi". :-)

No vi user would ever use a mouse!

Nor an emacs user. I assumed she was referring to the apparent obscurity of the interface (you can't just sit down and go), not to a mouse in particular.

I kind of like vi. I've never learned emacs.

I said the mouse was emacs-like because it's got everything. For all I know, it's got an Eliza program tucked away somewhere.

Whereas vi is resolutely primitive. "You had keyboards? We had to enter every command on a punch card! With our fingernails!"

But the truth is, vi is the editor I use when dealing with command-line *nix.
