Introduction: Mouse Jiggler
A simple project that when connected to your computer makes it look like you are giving the mouse a tap every once in a while.
1* ProMicro board (as there are no external connections either a 3.3V or 5V unit will do)
1* Micro USB to standard USB cable
Step 1: Software:
The code waits a random time between 1/2 and 5 seconds then moves the mouse pointer a small random distance and then repeats the cycle.
Step 2: Programming:
I programmed my device via the Arduino IDE, the ProMicro boards show up as Arduino Leonardo under Tools->Board->Arduino AVR Boards->Arduino Leonardo
Remember to set the Port under Tools->Port
Step 3: Operation:
Just plug the unit into a spare USB socket and wait for it to jiggle away.
