Hack An Old Computer Mouse Into A Wireless Bluetooth Mouse

If you’re nostalgic for the feel and design of mice from the 1980s and 1990s you can swap the motherboard and other internal parts from an inexpensive modern Bluetooth mouse to make a retro wireless mouse.

Instructables user UnconventionalHacker shares that as long as you’re comfortable soldering and perhaps shaving down a motherboard with a Dremel you can pretty much transfer any modern computer mouse internal circuitry into any older mouse as long as the casing on the older mouse will fit the internals of the new.

This could also be an interesting way to earn a few bucks on Etsy and eBay if you can source several cheap but functional bluetooth mice.
