1992 Odd Mouse Yoke Ideal for Flight Simulation

In 1992, Colorado Spectrum offered “The Mouse Yoke” for the price of $34.95, allowing users to transform a regular computer mouse into a joystick for flight simulators. This innovation required no additional installation or hardware and was compatible with Macs, Amigas, and IBM-compatible PCs, as long as they used a traditional ball mouse.


The device could easily be mounted to a desk or table with a simple knob turn, securing the mouse in place. To operate, users would push down on the yoke grip and attach it to the base. During flight simulations, users could pull back on the yoke to ascend, push forward to descend, and tilt left or right to bank in the corresponding direction.
