Hacked drivers enable Windows to work with Apple’s Multi-Touch™ Magic Mouse

Apple recently brought Multi-Touch™ gestures to the desktop with their revolutionary Magic Mouse, the world’s first Multi-Touch™ mouse.

The Multi-Touch™ area covers the top surface of Magic Mouse, and the laser tracking mouse itself is the button. Scroll in any direction with one finger, swipe through web pages and photos with two, and click and double-click anywhere. Inside Magic Mouse is a chip that tells it exactly what you want to do. Which means Magic Mouse won’t confuse a scroll with a swipe. It even knows when you’re just resting your hand on it.

When you use gestures, it’s as if you’re touching what’s on your screen. For instance, swiping through web pages in Safari gives you the feeling of flicking through pages in a magazine. And scrolling with Magic Mouse isn’t your everyday scrolling. It supports momentum scrolling (similar to iPhone and iPod touch), where the scrolling speed is dictated by how fast or slowly you perform the gesture.

And while Magic Mouse comes standard with every new iMac, you can also add it to any Bluetooth-enabled Mac for a Multi-Touch makeover.

Until now, Magic Mouse was Mac-only, but UNEASYsilence has performed a little hackery on Apple’s most-recent Bluetooth Update, extracting Apple’s Magic Mouse driver via WinRar which resulted in 32-bit and 64-bit versions that you can install on any ordinary Windows PC to enable all the Multi-Touch™ magic of Apple’s revolutionary Magic Mouse.
