Story:
Well here's a mouse I found @ work the other day. I think its a weird design that never went into production because I've never seen one anywhere else, Internet or otherwise. It's for a laptop and origonaly had a red LED for the scrolling wheel. Yes it was actually lighted when I found it. And your standard red optical lED. I changed them out for blue 5mm 9000MCD louminous intensity LEDs. These are some pretty bright LEDs. the pictures hardly do them justice. Considering the standard LED in you avarage optical mouse is around 5500 MCD. I would've shown the innards of it but was to occupied building it to remember to take pics.

I did something similar a few weeks ago, but I just used a regular LED, not super bright or anything. I really like how it looks, but unforunately you just cant see that from the photos.

My pictures are at www.gyro-mods.com/mods/mouse

Yours looks cooler because you have the light up scroll wheel, but you cant say I don't have the better mouse :)

I did'nt know you could find it there. I was just generalizing because I found a few more that look just like it but when I did a google search on the part no. I could'nt find anything. And no, I'm not stealing from work. I work at an asset retirement company and it was going to be destroyed anyway. I followed the correct procedure to remove it from the company.
