We made a little robot that used the Mouse "right and left bumber" as "feelers" and it actually evaded several objects around the house. Except for our dog :( this little guy had fun till it died to our dogs superior E Mouse Hunting skills and malevoulous Jaws :(
But I can say it was fun while it lasted, RIP Mr. Mini PC Mouse Robot
this is how it worked when the mouse ran into a wall one of the motors is stoped from spining which causes the other motor to take over and spin around and away from the obstacle. The happily continue onwards
This is our video on the project.
Step 1: Finding the Corpse
Once you find the mouse you want to use you need to open it up, do this by taking off the secret screws usually found under stickers or under the bottom mouse pads.
See the 3rd picture for the screw spots :P
Step 2: Stripping down the Mouse
Remove the fly "scroll" wheel from the mouse by pulling back the tab and pulling the wheel upwards.
Then remove the USB connection Cable, its just a pull off connection so thats the easy thing.
