Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Deassemble the USB Mouse.
In order to make this crazy stuff you will need to deassemble the already available usb mouse first.
Just focus on the bottom side the mouse where the red optical light resides, just below of it you will see company sealed sticker just remove it and open the mouse by pushing the bottom cover in upward direction to unlock the device.
Step 2: HANDLING THE PCB WITH RED OPTIC.
Allright folks, after deassembling the entire mouse the one which encounters is the pcb of mouse, from here you will need to do all of the work with this guy the pcb .
Suggestions - If you are not familiar with the soldering techniques or you are new in learning please do this in a parent supervision . You will have to learn good soldering skills.
Evey usb mouse pcb comes up with three buttons or we can say IC that we use to do the left/right/scroll with our mouse.
Keeping these concept in mind we will now desolder this connected buttons and w'll use it in our handmouse as a extension to our fingers .
Step 3: SOLDERING THE EXTENSIONS WITH PCB
Now , after desoldering the buttons from the pcb we well now use ribbon wires to connect these buttons with the help of wires to the same place as they earlier was. Use the length of the ribbon wire a/c to your finger size in order to get best fit for buttons.
Step 4: ASSEMBLE THE HANDMOUSE.
Now we are heading to our final step , w'll now use this pcb with our hand gloves you can use any size that best fits you and w'll bind this pcb to glove with the help of adhesive tape , you can use other options either.
Make sure the red optic which is attatched with the prism in order to emit the red optic is pointing downwards to the pcb.
This prism along with red optic well act as sensor to the handmouse.
Now connect those ribbon wires along with mouse buttons to pcb and wear it with help of plastic or copper wire rings for support. I made copper wire rings for convenience.
Thats it !
Your handmouse is ready , now just plug the usb cable to your pc and start doing mousework .
