Smile The world's coolest it just a fantasy?

I've been looking for a very unique mouse, but have yet to find it.

Here are the requirements:

1.) Small...could fit two in one hand easily or three with minor effort.
2.) Wireless.
3.) Receiver is a tiny USB dongle which can be inserted into the device when not in use.
4.) Moves the pointer with an analog stick similar to what you find on a modern gaming console controller, but much smaller.
5.) Left and right buttons are "triggers" placed one above the other clickable with the index finger.
6.) Scroll preference.

Does something like this exist? If not, how hard would it be to make one? Would anybody else like a mouse like this?


Basically, think of a Wiimote nunchuk, only smaller, and without the wiimote.

Hm...not quite. The Phaser uses a mini trackball; what I'm looking for is more a like an analog hat sort of thing.
Close, though.
