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. I’ve found four designs for the classic mouse, and a couple of “near neighbours” included below. The one has some kind of stand-alone encoder on the right hand side of the wheel in a little black box. I’ve never really been able to work out why this pulsing takes place.

I just don’t know. The wheel now has an optical chopper on the left hand side.
It doesn’t have a wheel despite being newer than a lot of the intllimouse mice here. They’ve done something different with the Product ID numbering though!
It could be a way of protecting against amient light entering the mouse, or possibly a power saving feature. If you know of any please send me some info using the link at the bottom of the page.
Microsoft celebrated the millennium by introducing a new microcontroller which needed fewer external components and incrementing the version number to “1. The microsofh is a Zialog mask programmed microcontroller labeled as copyright I used it in intelliouse heart of Cyclepong intellimojse also Three Blind Mice.
I’ve never really been able to work out why this pulsing takes place. The ball comes with a little cage to stop it rolling out when you open the mouse. Other Microsoft Mice Microsoft did a few designs as well as the classics above. 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.
This has it’s own tiny PCB and a little ribbon cable connecting to the main board.
Perhaps there are more. This is the only symmetrical design I have however. If micrrosoft have any info please leave a comment.
Overall mechanical design around the wheel is much simpler in this version. Still, you wouldn’t want me to cut corners and leave one out would you?

Update 12th August Also found anouther mouse just like this IntelliMouse 1. A significant change I am sure you’ll agree. Did you design any of the versions shown here? The insides of old mice get disgusting.
Oh, and before you ask – I know this is a very stooooopid quest, but don’t take it too seriously OK. Perhaps the previous design is a cost reduction too far.

Like all microsfot it has some interesting history. Anyway, to fill the knowledge gap about the different designs – here is my catalog of the classic Microsoft three button mouse designs that I’ve seen. Apologies for this mouse being butchered already. Yes, this one how has a five way connector to the cord including the screen instead of the four way connector in the previous version.
I suspect it was completely rewritten for different hardware. I guess by then they had optimized things to their satisfaction. Do you like the tin foil hat ingellimouse the chip?

I imagine every new intern at Microsoft microsort being given the job of shaving 1 cent of the cost of a Microsoft mouse. Can you spot anything?
In fact this is one of the ones in Cyclepong 2. Having hacked a few of them I started to notice that every mouse seemed slightly different, but I imtellimouse find any information about different designs on the web. I’ve found four designs for the classic mouse, and a couple of “near neighbours” included below.
