Dinosaur Mouse




About: I enjoy taking a pile of junk and making something unusual out of it. I like wheeled vehicles, and currently own two motorcycles, two electric bikes that I've built, and an electric scooter pushed by a soc...

I was going through my supply of old computer parts and found a dinosaur that was trying to disguise itself as a computer mouse!

No part of this mouse was wasted......  The shell was used for the head, the left & right buttons became the feet,  the track sensors became the eyes, and the cord was used for the arms and tail.  The ball rolled under my workbench and is apparently lost forever.  The base and body came from an old scanner switch assembly.

Hot glue is your friend.....
