Multiple Mice as a Student Response System

Microsoft has released a free plugin for PowerPoint called Mouse Mischief that
allows teachers to work with Microsoft Office PowerPoint to make interactive presentations. With Mouse Mischief, teachers can add multiple choice questions to their presentations, and large groups of students can answer the questions using mice connected to the teacher’s PC.
I recorded a video of Mouse Mischief in action:

The software is currently in beta, meaning that there may still be some issues to work out before the official release.  In my testing, though, it seems to perform well at what it was designed to do.

There are a couple of other YouTube videos about this, here and here.
