This fancy render envisions a non-terrible Mighty Mouse made out of aluminum


No one uses Apple’s Mighty Mouse because it’s a giant heap of hot, liquidy garbage. This render, whipped up by the MacBlogz folks, shows one direction Apple could take to remedy the problem.

Gone is the cheap plastic shell, replaced by a less cheap aluminum one. The dimensions have been shaved down, too, resulting in a slimmer, dare I say sleeker aesthetic. Also incorporated into the design is Apple’s latest innovation in “touch” technology. It’d be able to interpret different gestures—a flick across its surface could open a new window, say—in order to improve your Mac-using experience.

Again, it’s just a render, a little thinking out loud, if you will, so don’t get too excited.
