Mighty Mouse exposed

What fun is having new hardware if you can’t take it apart and see how it works. I’m curious about the speaker.

Ars Technica posts Dissecting Mighty Mouse. “Long-time Mac fans know the drill: a new, cool piece of hardware comes out, and generally within 48 hours a website (usually in Japan) springs up with pictures of the innards of the new device. This time, we thought we’d give it a try. Curious about the innards of Apple’s new Mighty Mouse? Ars dissects Apple’s Mighty Mouse to see what makes it tick click.”

“The top half of the mouse contained the most interesting features to examine. There were touch sensors, the scroll ball assembly, connections for sensors and assembly that plug into the board on the bottom half of the mouse, and a copper grounding strip.”

“We also settle the question of the “click” sound and used Xev to see how the Mighty Mouse actually interprets all the tapping, rolling, and clicking. Come inside and see the insides of the Mighty Mouse!”
