Some of the steps I still don't understand would it be possible for you to make a descriptive video?

I'm pretty sure nearly anything can be 3-D printed, from the things I've seen done.

Switch and Lever (author)2012-12-20

You did a great job, I'm happy to see my creation grow into something that actually works.

However, I think you could at least have credited your source, even though you made this thing real you didn't come up with the idea nor the design.

For anyone who's interested you can check the original design at my website:

champx (author)Switch and Lever2012-12-20

I said that I had copied the design on your by creating the second version
only, I found plenty of links but never your site .... sorry

I made these mice because I fell in love with your and I wanted a functional, wireless and a Dpad scrollwheel

I'll edit my Instructables to quote your site
if you want, I removes my two mice on the site

Switch and Lever (author)champx2012-12-20

No no, by all means keep stuff up. I like what you've done here, as I said, nice to see it being realized as something else as just a concept. A linkback would be nice though :)

well, that looks like you either spent a year on it or you decided to buy one. GREAT QORK

champx (author)Krayzi992012-12-17

it take me 3 days to make this mouse.....!

Krayzi99 (author)champx2012-12-18

Np, just noticed i said QORK instead of work... sorry bout that. Anyway, i am probably gonna make this when i get my hands on a nespad... actually i like your version 2 better, the posioning of the scroll wheel... either way. great job on this. Mind blown, 3 FREAKIN DAYS?! HOLY CRAP you officially blew my mind.

Great work there, Not very complicated electronics tinkering but excellent excellent craftsmanship and finishing

Tomdf (author)2012-12-16

I will forever live in envy of your finishing skills. That is some fine craftsmanship, nicework!
