Hand grenade mouse

Very cool looking homemade / modded hand grenade mouse from a Russia modding forums. Looks pretty easy to remake…

    Well, as I can’t understand russian, i cannot read the russian link. But as author of the mod, I must say is a Spanish mod.
    Created a few months ago, it’s first appearance was in “Arnies airsoft Forums” under the name “Inventor” (me ^^ ) and after that, i published it in Metkumods, under the mouse section.

    The grenade itself is an old BB container, and stuffed inside is a cheap wireless optical mouse. Ergonomics are not that bad, but of course hours of gameplay with it are not advisable. At first, I thought to make the pulling pin operative, but in the end I thought it could just be a pain in the ass and superglued it in place.

    Buttons are activated via rocking the full head like apple mouses do and plastic underneath them does have a nylon slider to allow normal use without surface wear.

    As I do not understand rusian, i can’t read what your link does say, but as the designer of it, I must say it’s a spanish invention, and altough it does look a bit awkward, it feels comfortable in your palm.
    Right and left switches are activated like an apple mouse, by pushing down the corners about 1mm down.
    The slider plastic under both buttons does indeed have some nylon plastic to make it useable and of course, it’s a wireless mouse powered by two AAA batteries.

    (first apearance was in “Arnies airsoft forums” and second apearance was in Metkumods, as for backtracking purposes ^^, under the name Inventor)

    A magnetized firing pin in tandem with a reed switch tied to the ground wire would have made for a nice addition.
