While looking for a keyboard and mouse to test the newly acquired Macintosh SE/30, I came across a plastic bag filled with apple pro mouse. I bought these 7 spoilt apple pro mouse from ebay last year. 5 of them are the original first generation black color ones while the other 2 are white in color.
When these mice were released in 2000, the design was just so beautiful. An elegant elliptical shape made of clear acrylic with a translucent black inner piece that emitted a little glow of red through the apple logo.
One white mice has been nursed back to health exhibiting a healthy red glow. It has since found a new home. After repairing the first mouse, the rest have been stored in a plastic bag on the shelf.
A quick search on google revealed a mod turning the mouse into a belt buckle. Another person made a soap dish. My initial ideas were the following:
A. Remove the guts and replace with a generic wireless mouse internals.
B. Turn it into a torch light similar to those ‘pop’ lights.
C. Make a frame to hold all 7 mice to create a bedside lamp powered through a usb hub.
D. Modify the transparent shell to fit a mighty mouse
It has been awhile but maybe it’s time to revive this Mac Mod. I am inclined to go with option D to make a transparent mighty mouse. Anyone have a cheap wired or wireless mighty mouse for sale?
