Overall mechanical design around the wheel is much simpler in this version. I’ve never really been able to work out why this pulsing takes place. In fact this is one of the ones in Cyclepong 2.
The fastidious probably want to look away now. I intrllimouse it was completely rewritten for different hardware.
The ball comes with a little cage to stop it rolling out when you open the mouse. Having hacked a few of them I started to notice that every mouse seemed slightly different, but I couldn’t find any information microskft different designs on the web.
This is the only symmetrical design I have however. If you put a scope on the IR choppers you’ll find that the mouse pulses the IR transmitter, you’ll also see that the speed of pulsing changes if you don’t move the mouse for a while.
Do itnellimouse like the tin foil hat for the chip? If you know of any please send me some info using the link at the bottom of the page.
Along with a new microcontroller you also get a different type of switch compared to the previous versions. Simple, reliable and very forgiving. Update 12th August Also found anouther mouse just like this IntelliMouse 1.
Other Microsoft Mice Microsoft did a few designs as well as the classics above. Send Iain a private message.

Microsoft celebrated the millennium by introducing a new microcontroller which needed fewer external components and incrementing the version number to “1. I used it in the heart of Cyclepong and also Three Blind Mice. Did you design any of the versions shown here?
This has it’s own tiny PCB and a little ribbon cable connecting to the main board. I’ve found four designs for the classic mouse, and a couple of “near neighbours” included below. Perhaps the previous design is a cost reduction too far. They’ve done something different with the Product ID numbering though!
The wheel now has an optical chopper on the left hand side.
I imagine every new intern at Microsoft hardware being given the jntellimouse of shaving 1 cent of the cost of a Microsoft mouse. Apologies for this mouse being butchered already. A significant change I am sure you’ll agree.
Anyway, microskft fill the knowledge gap about the different designs – here is my catalog of the classic Microsoft three button mouse designs that I’ve seen. It could be a way of protecting against amient light entering the mouse, or possibly a power saving feature. I guess by then they had optimized things to their satisfaction. The chip is a Zialog mask programmed microcontroller labeled as copyright Still, you wouldn’t want me to cut corners and leave one out would you?

It doesn’t have a wheel despite being newer than a lot of the wheel mice here. Oh, and before you ask – I know this is a very stooooopid quest, but don’t take it too seriously OK.
Seems to have a lot in common with the other early examples here, but some diodes have popped lntellimouse – I am not sure why.
