Taking advantage of the Keyboard Vs. Mouse Speed Challenge, I want to share with you some of my reused mice old ideas. You can use an old mouse in many ways, for example:
  • As an animal head (like a dinosaur)
  • As a battle droid head
  • Make a scorpion and other kind of bug, and use them as desktop decoration or arm accesories
  • As robot feet
Soon, I will upload a full instructable of how to use mice for making insects. So, stay tuned on M.C. Langer's channel!!! :-)
<p>Whoa, I lllove these little robots!</p>
Thank you so much, Gabry! :-)
<p>This is AWESOME :D</p>

Wat did u use for the legs on the scorpion
Iron pieces for hang photo frames in the wall.
Thats cool ! but .. can they move ?
Thanks. Some of them are vibrobots!
would be cool doing a stop and go movie with them
These are fantastic! We have a lot of broken or unusable mice at work, I feel my creative juices flowing! Nice work!!
Thanks Poofrabbit!!!

Thanks bro! :-)
You would make a fun shopping buddy :0)!
Ouuuh yeah!!!! :-)
Wonderful ideas! Now I almost wish my mouse stops working so that I can make something cool with it! :)
Thanks XoFHope!!! :-)
Very nice indeed. Beyt you can't wait for garage sale season so you can find mor parts ;0)
Thanks!! And... OH YEAH!! I love the Flea markets!! :-)
do they move?
Except the Dinosaur and the small bot (they light their eyes), the other robots vibrate or roll forward. The scorpions are only decorative stuff.
Really? You should enter them in the Robot Contest! It's specially targeted for simple robots that kids can build - those sound perfect.
Hi Canida! I tried to enter to the Robot Contest with this instructable, but it only admits step by step instructables. But, no problem!! I made the new one:<br> <br> <a href="http://www.instructables.com/id/Build-vibroinsects-using-discarded-mice-Go-Team-M/">http://www.instructables.com/id/Build-vibroinsects-using-discarded-mice-Go-Team-M/</a><br> <br> Thanks!!<br>
Thanks Canida!! Well, I thought my vibrobots are very basic for the Robot Contest. But if you say they are good for this, I will enter the next week! :-)
Brilliant, so inseparable!
Thank you Big!! :-)
Sorry, what I was meant to say was inspirational
Nice work
Thanks Ramhardikar!! :-)
I just got three broken computer mice, I'll have to try something. I like your robots, they look awesome!
Thanks Cowscankill!! Watch out for my next instructable. I will show how to build mice-based insects :-)
Your ideas are so good<br>
Thanks Big-ideas!! :-)
M.Cl Langer Strikes Again...way to go Mario...sin duda alguna tenemos un ganador.
