A new Apple patent application for an Ambidextrous Mouse has been submitted, describing a wireless, user-configurable mouse that could automatically recognize whether it was being held by a left- or right-handed user and adjust its virtual buttons and other controls accordingly.

The mouse Apple has in mind sounds a lot like the current Magic Mouse, with "a unibody housing having a buttonless touch sensitive surface" which would be "divided into an array of independent and spatially distinct sensing regions." The various button zones - which could be customized in terms of layout, number and purpose - are then set out according to that user's previous settings.
