Is I already posted earlier on this list, there is already a 'fair' 
product, a simple mouse, and it's ready to buy:


A mouse of that simplenes and design is usually given away as goodie if 
you are on a fair (exhibition).

The price for the fair mouse starts at 30 EUR with 'upgrade' packages for 
a 3rd mousebutton etc...

So the 'fair' production costs are about 10x higher.
Hard to believe that someone buys a phone that costs 3000 EUR,

Seeing this before the background, that geeks like us - which are usually 
willing to spent more money than necessary for toys - are unable to 
finance Nikolaus GTA project.
