   Even better, use one of those pads like they have on laptops in the 
place of mice.  Just think about it!  Get a larger version and start 
throwing stuff at it!  Roll balls over it, spin a top on its surface, get 
your cat...  The possibilities as a controller are ENDLESS!!!

   But seriously, this would be kind of a neat project.  Bet you could 
get a scholarship for it at that school over in europe that designs all 
those wacky MIDI controllers.  :)
