Thanks I was thinking instead of using CMOS sensors I could use two things to replace it 1) Something to keep a 0 angle relative to you rotating the mouse. (I SUCK ON THIS) 2) Something to measure the speed between the mouse and mousepad. Like if i rotated the mouse -45 degrees the 0 angle would be -45 degrese if i then rotated it 105 degrese the 0 angle would be 60 degrese. Those two would i guess replace the x, y and would send the angle and speed to the computer and move the cursor accordingly.

I'm not sure what you mean. To get the angle the mouse is being held at, you'd use trigonometry on the X, Y, and Z outputs.
