In this concept design, Taewon Hwang imagines a peripheral that can be stored inside a CD ROM drive but function as a controller when opened.

Designer Taewon Hwang has developed a flat-pack peripheral concept that can fit inside a laptop's CD ROM drive to store and transport it. Yanko Design reports that when you fold it out origami-style, it converts into a fully-functioning mouse.

The two-button mouse has a scroll wheel and a USB receiver. When flat, the mouse switches itself off, and when folded out, the power turns on. This new way to imagine our everyday tech is a 2012 iF Design Talents entry.
