3: More special effects

Apple went to a fair amount of trouble make the light in the mouse shine in a 'Space Age' way.

A plastic shield to prevent the light from shining directly up A black plastic 'trough' to contain the light.
(The small holes visible in the top of the camera IC have to do with the production of the IC and have no funtion. It looks as if the plastic is to guide the light into these holes but this is not the case.)

The story continues: go to Part 4...
