20 Pound Mouse Pointer

The recent discussion on boomeranged metaphors reminded me of this 20 pound mouse hand created a some years ago for a Paradise by the laptop light event on Next Nature. The pionter counts 158 LEDs that are programmable per pixel line and was made by: David Menting, Jasper Dekker, Guus Baggermans and Brian Garret.
