Is that a trackpad of sorts on the mouse?

classic!

and the mockups not bad either {boom tish}
post #48 of 131
Mockup looks worse every time I see it, you have to look at it like the scrollpad is slightly sunk into the mouse for it to work visually.

Bad idea. Tactile "feel" is important. I just want a bluetooth version.

Tactile feedback can easily be reproduced by
A) adding a clicker sound to the piezo speaker the mouse already has anyway (cf. iPod)
B) roughening the trackpad surface (cf. MacBook Pro, MacBook)
C) both.

I like the white feel, interesting. However I feel this position and size are better though. Smaller size would allow for clicking right and left buttons etc.

Not a big deal I don't think. A small trade off for constant reliability, besides if it was too big it would keep getting in the way.

WTF, I just came across this - post date 2004!!:

Maybe they tried a touchpad already before making Mighty Mouse.

I think we need to hear more from admactanium as to why that kensington mouse wasn't any good.

They also had a patent for a mouse with what looked like a small iPod scrollwheel on the top.

You mean this:



The problem with this concept is it only allows for up and down scrolling which wont cut it these days.

I have a Logitech V500 Mouse, and it has a touch scroll pad (up/down, left/right) and to be honest it is not so great. I accidentally touch it too many times and end up jumping to the bottom of the page. I much prefer the little ball on the Mighty Mouse.

I don't get tactile feedback from my two-finger scroll on my MacBook, and it works brilliantly!

come on now, that IS blunt you ask for designs and then you slag em off i asks ya??

and you CAN use the scroll wheel for...

sideways scrolling = put finger on left scroll OVER top to the right.

you could have STARTING ON THE LEFT going UNDER to the right mean somthing else or mean exactly the same thing

up down = start finger at top, move finger down and to the right for down, just like the ipod.

its all in the implementation... think different? no, think a little

im not saying its the best way, just that it IS possible


RE implementation, i dont have a mighty mouse, nor dont intent to get one unless it comes free with my imac but if as i understand it there are side buttons that are user asignable, couldnt an ordinary wheel be used, and when you want to scroll horizonatally you press the side button (with thumb) and wheel becomes a sideways scroller ...

again not perfect, but saves the problems with the ball.

I suggested a specific design because I though it might be an improvment upon the current design, BUT, what is that thing? I never suggested such a thing. Apple's wouldn't make anything like that, sorry for hurting someone's feelings, but the truth hurts sometimes.

It's a pipe-dream anyway, Apple would never include a mouse as expensive as the one you suggested. This is probably why they (according to above posts) came up with and then abandoned other, similar, designs.

Why rest your finger ON something, when you could rest your index finger IN something? Why repetitively push and scroll, when you could repetitively use this interface, which I call the "iHole"
