Martian Tripod? Control Battalion Walker?

Did some scavenging in a pile of junk that Lady Shadowmoss was getting rid of and found this hi-tech bit of Martian technology:

The above is made from an old ball-type mouse (as opposed to a laser mouse) and a small desktop mic or camera tripod.  It stands about 5 inches tall.

With a snip of the cable and a suitable paint job, I can use it for VSF or Far Future sci-fi games. And since the tripod fits inside the hole for the ball,  no gluing is required. This means the mouse can function as a scout ship of some sort.
