Literal Computer Mouse
« on: March 31, 2016, 04:27:22 PM »
This is my very first post here, so let me know if I'm doing everything right here.

So, I had an idea a while ago, but can't exactly test it. I was thinking it would be kind of funny to use 4 pressure sensing plates with tin foil or something that move the mouse or in game character around, except that to do so an actual mouse could walk on the pressure pads. Not exactly the most practical thing, but it might be fun for a Twitch stream where you have a mouse playing a game like that one stream where a goldfish swam around a tank to move the player around.

DJ505 that is such a cool idea!
Have you made this?
You could try making tiny versions of these pressure pads - http://www.ohiofi.com/blog/quick-and-easy-diy-pressure-plate-switch-for-makey-makey-and-scratch/

Let us know how this project goes!
