    I know the woes about the Mighty Mouse. This is the next-generation Apple Mouse, a concept I've done.

    7 physical buttons, Multi-Touch, MagSafe, Bluetooth and laser. Read about this image here.

    Update: Here's the keyboard in white.

    I like it.

    I also looked at a few of your other mock ups. They are all awesome. Apple should employ you.

    I like it, the tiny track ball in the mighty mouse annoys me.

    Thanks guys, the track ball is sure really poor.

    Reminds me of a bar of soap.

    Although, I'm assuming its touch sensitive for scrolling?

    VERY nice! One thing I would add is a light up sensor (where to track ball normally is) to serve as a "scroll sensor."

    Anyways, that looks really cool! I can SO see Apple making a mouse like that.

    As long as it has a right click, and not a "one finger up right click detection" like the current apple mouses, then good idea. But that whole setup apple is running now in their mighty mouse frustrates me to no end when using 3d modeling software. Not the best choice, but I had already purchased it for other reasons, still hate it.

    Nice! Would work with multi-touch well i think, they might have to put some angles in the to work with multi finger gestures

    How about this wireless keyboard?

    Multi-Touch, MagSafe and Bluetooth. Shout-out to Chris McCormack.

    I would definitely love backlit, but it would be hard on the battery.

    More than awesome, mouse and keyboard!

    Personally I think the Mighty Mouse is the worst Apple product of these days. The clicking is bad, the side buttons are a pain in the ass, and the ergonomics could be a bit better.

    Odd. The track ball is the only thing about the MM I like. Apparently most of you are too busy getting Cheeto debris on them...?

    ...Why the heck would you need MagSafe on a mouse or keyboard?

    While it is being charged/used. If it is being charged on a table, and plugged across to a wall, people can trip on the cord, that could yank it to the floor without a magsafe adapter.

    BTW.. nice new avatar. It was time for a change, and it is nice and refreshing. :)

    Only problem I see is finding the right balance of magnets for the mouse, too much and the mouse goes flying anyways, too little and using the mouse while plugged in will pull the cord. However a charging dock for the MM would be practical. The keyboard should be heavy enough to hold its own.

    man i'd kill for a wireless keyboard with multi touch track pad... or heck.. a bluetooth trackpad!

    and 7 buttons? jeez

    lets see

    Left,
    Right,
    Middle (dashboard),
    Squeeze (Expose)

    the others for spaces, and back and forward on the browser? (or maybe show desktop and cycle through windows?)

    that would be a sweet mouse!

    i'm about to go with the logitech MX revolution though... ;)

    I think a sleek charging dock that charged by contact (like electric toothbrushes) would be cool. :)

    Or build it right into the mouse pad. The mouse is always on the mouse pad. It could charge while in use and while at rest.
