Creating an optical mouse cam with an Arduino

Last week I wrote about interfacing an optical mouse with your Arduino. Vivi chimed in on the comments with some interesting information about the sensor, and a link to their version of a mouse scanner. It’s a really well documented build that I am definitely going to try out. Thanks Vivi!

OK, so I finally decided to get my hands on the Arduino platform and see what all the buzz is really about. And I must say, I’m impressed. This is by far the most developer-friendly development platform I’ve ever seen.

Check out the amazing results:


Check out the web site for a lot more information, including all the Arduino and Java code. Great work Vivi, and thanks for sharing!
