A just-revealed patent from Apple shows that the Magic Mouse might be getting even more super powers in the future.

As well as touch abilities, Apple is considering even more motion sensors than your average computer rodent boasts with a triple-axes gyroscope that detects the roll, pitch, and yaw of the mouse.

This would mean users could tilt the mouse to scroll horizontally and vertically or tilt the input device to move something - such as an image - on the screen.

The rockable mouse would also get a convex bottom in order to make it easier to carry out the tilts by rocking or rolling the mouse.

There's tons more info and diagrams over on Patently Apple if you fancy learning more, and we'll be sure to keep you posted with Apple news.
