Matty Benedetto, the founder of the YouTube channel and brand Unnecessary Inventions, decided to try a bit of a contrast to his brand: how to charge and use the Apple Magic Mouse at the same time.
Unnecessary inventions are described as being the brainchild of the inventor Matti Benedet. In his own account, in the last two years he has designed and fully prototyped over 275 new inventions that solve non-existent problems. He combines 3D printing, sewing, molding, woodworking, laser cutting, and other methods to create inventions.
Although he states that his branding is unnecessary, sometimes his invention is biased to the other side of the spectrum. His latest device is, in theory, a device that allows you to use and charge your Apple Magic Mouse at the same time. This is a product that has been regularly ridiculed by one major design decision.
“It’s no exaggeration to say that Apple has designed some of the most beautiful and iconic technologies that have completely reshaped the way everyone in society interacts with the world,” says Benedetto.
“And this is anything,” he adds, pointing to Magic Mouse.
The Apple Magic Mouse features a seamless transparent top that gently arches over the mouse, making it small but fits snugly in the palm of your hand. But because it’s so seamless, the process of charging it has proven to be one of the most regularly ridiculed design decisions Apple has ever faced.
“On the surface, it’s a really well-designed product,” says Benedet. “In fact, it works surprisingly well, but the most hated feature is the billing method.”
To charge your Magic Mouse, you need to turn it over and connect the Lightning cable to the bottom of the mouse so that it can’t be operated while charging.
This one decision has led many to refuse to use Magic Mouse, despite its excellent omnidirectional touch control and aesthetics of comfortable design. But Benedet theoretically came up with a way to “solve” the problem.
He can combine an L-shaped Lightning charging cable, two ball bearings, and a 3D printed housing to put the mouse on it with the plug plugged in, but thanks to the ball bearings it works. To do.
“Fortunately, the angle of the device causes the device to move around, so you can use the mouse as you normally would,” he says.
Unfortunately, after making every effort to design, Benedet found the terrible thing that the Apple Magic Mouse would be inoperable when charging. Despite his best efforts and the fact that the design allows for the complete unobstructed use of the mouse, his efforts were in vain.
Alas, he went a little further and probably created the invention he needed, but in fact he unintentionally created the invention he didn’t need.
