Here is my third version of the mouse nes

the original nes mouse was made by
you can see the original at:


it is shorter, better design, more ergonomic than my V2 and with
logitech electronics

Step 1:

first, cut and keep the necessary elements
that is to say, the d-pad and buttons housing

shortening the chassis 1 cm

remove a bothersome pieces inside, turning with tongs
it is easily

Step 2:

trace the periphery of the base of the mouse
(in my case, I drew the following without the battery door)

cut bottom of gamepad

I use a jigsaw and then gently while going after a lime

Step 3:

use of glue (cyanoacrylate) to hold Elements quickly

in this case, I cut the battery door to fit in the etched

I finished pasting everything with epoxy glue two components (to take longer but very resistant)

Step 4:

I use polycarbonate (Makrolon) to form the outer
it warms in the oven at 160 ° celsius becomes soft enough to take the desired rounded shape

pmma not take the smell is strong because it is brittle and

cut a little the upper frame of the gamepad, paste and cut the sides drawn a good shape
positioning the upper heated beforehand and stick with glue some point

trace the location of the button
several drill hole, cut between the hole with a clamp and finish with a lime

Step 5:

for the scrollwheel, it depends on the system in the donor mouse
for my V2 is a mechanical system and my V3 it is an optical system

in any case, I made a frame in which I put a small bearing
I pierce the d-pad to put a threaded rod

the parts are brass for more inertia

Step 6:

I added a piece of Makrolon and a small latch to close the battery door

for buttons, I extend the legs switch and I put the switch in front of the hole and secure with hot glue

Step 7:

Finally, I used mastic, sanding paper, the primer and paint
for color, I made ​​a bit of gray beige to make used gamepad

Step 8:

Finally, I used mastic, sanding paper, the primer and paint
for color, I made ​​a bit of gray beige to make used gamepad
Some of the steps I still don't understand would it be possible for you to make a descriptive video?
You did a great job, I'm happy to see my creation grow into something that actually works. <br> <br>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. <br> <br>For anyone who's interested you can check the original design at my website: http://threepercentdone.com/#12
I said that I had copied the design on your by creating the second version <br>only, I found plenty of links but never your site .... sorry <br> <br>I made these mice because I fell in love with your and I wanted a functional, wireless and a Dpad scrollwheel <br> <br>I'll edit my Instructables to quote your site <br>if you want, I removes my two mice on the site
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
it take me 3 days to make this mouse.....! <br>thanks!
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
I will forever live in envy of your finishing skills. That is some fine craftsmanship, nicework!
i love the design... its very nintendo-ish... :D
