Mice first broke onto the public stage with the introduction of the Apple Macintosh in 1984, and since then they have helped to completely redefine the way we use computers.
The mouse is an extremely popular device. While the majority of mice are connected directly to the computers peripheral input via a cord and the computer’s main power powers it, wireless mice are becoming extremely popular as they give computer users cordless accessibility to their mice and their computer.

The present document shows step by step how to easily build an interesting pointing device: the wireless tilt mouse, that allows to control the mouse’s cursor on the PC screen through the tilt of the board itself. The analog data from a 3-D accelerometer and from two push-buttons are acquired, converted and radio transmitted by an XBee module using the standard ZigBee protocol.

This is a simple project to add an intelligent rapid fire button to a mouse using a microcontroller (ATTiny25). Because the project is simple both in schematics and code (both posted), it’s a great example of how to attack a real life project with a microcontroller-based solution. Although other rapidfire button mods are out there (many involving 555 chips), this one is special because one press triggers it (no need to hold it down), and it fires (left-clicks) 25 times a second for exactly 5 seconds (the time it takes to fully unload a magazine in Counter-Strike Source! The video shows all steps of the project, including programming the microcontroller, and even demonstrates practical usage of an oscilloscope! This is a fun project which may serve as inspiration for anyone just getting into microcontrollers.

This project shows how to add an autofire button to your mouse. To achieve that “Peter Skaarup’s” used a PIC 10F200 along with a momentary push switch and a transistor. When the autofire button is pressed the microcontroller drives the transistor to short the left mouse button about 17 times per second. Check how this is done on the link below. [via]

This project is a prototype mouse using a LED and 4 photoresistors to detect motion.
The photoresistors are detecting the light emitted by an LED and refracted by your hand, allowing you to control your cursor simply by moving your hand over the sensors. the closet you are from the sensors, the faster the cursor will be. It’s not ergonomic nor commercially viable, but it’s a nice experiment to do. The firmware detect the position of any object on top of the sensors. You can find the code here: http://pastebin.com/H3kzkbK2

I work a lot with ESD sensitive stuff – ICs, transistors and other devices. And that means – if I don’t wanna kill em all I need to discharge often – which is quite annoying. But I happen to work with a computer, and a standard input device – the mouse. Which gave me a nice idea – use the Ground connection of the mouse to discharge me.

This is H8 micro mouse robot. Stepping Motor using autonomous sensors and travel mouse H8 SHINPURUAPURIKESHON 1 (C language) development.Hardware is AKI-H8/3069F (no-LAN) and the step motor circuit, ultrasonic sensor circuit, LED circuit, and using the Software HOS Cruise Control (RTOS) on the task, the obstacles SENSHINGUTASUKU run two tasks simple. OBSTACLES dropped close to the speed (low speeds mode), and no obstacles close to turning right direction (swing mode).There are no obstacles to speed up (high-speed mode), which went on to repeat travel.

This is 3D ultrasonic computer mouse.The MagicMouse receiver consists of five ultrasonic micrphones precisely positioned.It works like a regular mouse except that you wear it on your finger instead of using your whole hand to manipulate a mouse. Below is the Receiver.
