Did You Know You Can Use a USB Mouse on Your Tesla?

Charging your mobile device and playing music from a USB thumb drive are common uses for the Tesla Model S USB port but can it do more?

One curious Model S owner took it upon himself to find the answer to that very same question. Michael Cermak experimented with various USB devices on the Model S including a keyboard, a CD drive, a USB mouse and even a USB powered floppy drive. Yes, a floppy disk. The outcome?

It turns out that the Model S is capable of detecting the USB mouse and floppy drive! What’s most compelling to see is the fact that a blue mouse pointer appears directly on the 17″ center display and responds to the movement of the mouse!

Keeping fingerprints away from the touchscreen has never been easier.
