We all either have them or had tried the cool pop-socket covers on our phone once but can that simple thing be made any more fun? The answer is yes, designer Yongbin Kim created the conceptual Magic Mouse Mini, by fitting an optical sensor into it.

The magic mouse mini looks like any normal pop-socket that gives allows you to easily hold your phone but when we switch on the power button on the side of the pop-socket, something incredible happens, the optical sensors on the back of the pop-socket i.e. above the apple logo, activate themselves and you can use it to control your iMacs and MacBooks through this, giving you a comfortable way to use your laptop with Magic Mouse Mini attached to your phone, and saving also helps in saving money for the Desktop users !! congratulations guys you don’t need to buy a mouse now.

When connected, the optical sensor on the socket helps with cursor-tracking, while the iPhone’s touchscreen shoulders the responsibility of providing the control surface, allowing you to left-click, right-click, pinch, zoom, scroll, and allows you do a variety of other gestures, just like a normal mouse.
