Retrofitting a Classic Mouse with Wireless

Retrofitting a Classic Mouse with Wireless

The folks from UnconventionalHacker posted a fantastic Instructable on how to use the insides of an inexpensive wireless mouse to bring wireless to a classic, corded mouse. You’ll need to have your soldering iron and Dremel handy, but this simple hack could probably take an afternoon. So if you’re ready, willing, and able to give up the creature comforts of a scroll wheel and secondary mouse button to show your retro Mac pride, this how-to is for you. [via Lifehacker]
