This is not a mouse

The CUL is a small gadget which combines a CC1101 RF module with a USB-enabled ATmega processor in a very small unit:

So, yes, it has a tail and it plugs into a USB port, but it’s not a mouse. This thing can receive and decode messages from 868 MHz devices such as the FS20 home control unit, the KS300 weather sensor, and more. Technically, it could also send out such messages since the CC1101 is a transceiver, but apparently the 1.07 firmware isn’t quite there yet.
