I have a logitech keyboard with built in solar panels that works well in my office and I never have to change any batteries. I have a mac with a magic mouse and it would make sense to cover the mouse in solar panels to absorb energy all of the time I'm NOT using it. My hand would cover the panels during use, but think about how much of the time your mouse is uncovered.
There are other charging soultions like this charger for the mouse with conductive charging, but at $30 and taking up a port on my USB, I don't think it's that great of a solution.

Cool idea! It is going to be a challenge to integrate curved solar cells but it this is a flat top mouse it is straight forward deal.
