The inside is a different thing though the outside is Apple.
It's USB, optical, scrollwheel(three buttons).
Full color LED with a a built-in control IC.

That old mouse was for ADB, the Apple Desktop Bus. (Oh! actually, there was also a pre-ADB version). While ADB could handle multi-button mice, this one was one-button, and I doubt that there was a simple wire-up to the original electronics to communicate other button keypresses. So either this is really one button in three parts, or there's new stuff inside. Unfortunately, the photos do not show the end of the cable, which could make it easy to distinguish ADB from USB. Still, that middle button looks suspiciously like a scrollwheel.

I cannot find any project details on the links here nor in the MetkuMods forums. Could the submitter please add a bit of description here or there?

Six: That mouse came out in 1984 and was retired in 1990. Computers were ugly back then.

Sick mod man, I assume it's USB? Did you gut a Logitech or something?

I'm curious if it rotates colors when you click the button, that would be pretty cool, and shouldn't be too difficult to do.
