Old Apple Mouse Gets a (Blue)tooth Transplant

 |  |  |  |  |  |  September 9, 2012


Unless you frequently game on your PC or you have extraordinarily strong fingers, chances are your old computer mice still work. The folks at The Unconventional Hacker have figured out a way to transfer more modern guts to an old wired mouse, turning it into a wireless Bluetooth mouse.

The Unconventional Hacker sacrificed a cheap Bluetooth mouse to revive a 1986 Apple Desktop Bus mouse, but as Lifehacker noted, there’s a good chance you can do this with other mice as well. Basically you need to transfer the motherboard of the newer mouse into your older mouse. This might require a bit of improvisation on your part, but that’s what tinkerers live for. You gotta work hard for the privilege of using a one-button mouse again.

Head to Instructables for the full how-to. And for the love of right-click, do revive a mouse with at least two buttons.
