The pc mouse is without doubt one of the most essential equipment ever invented, one which primarily carried in a brand new wave of digital interplay when it was first launched. However what if we went additional, like YouTuber Electronic Grenade, who has achieved the seemingly unattainable: constructed a mouse that not solely can management a pc, however in fact is a fully functional computer on its own, full with a built-in display screen and keyboard (via Motherboard).
As Digital Grenade particulars, the computer-mouse is a custom-designed 3D-printed mouse case that homes a Raspberry Pi Zero W (in fact), together with sensors cannibalized from a separate mouse. However what makes it actually spectacular is the 1.5-inch OLED show mounted on the highest, together with tiny pop-out Bluetooth keyboard that turns it from “cute Raspberry Pi case” into “precise, totally useful laptop.”
The completed product is a bit bulkier than a standard mouse, which is to be anticipated, however taken as an entire it’s nonetheless a reasonably spectacular endeavor. And regardless of the hacked-together nature, because it runs off a Raspberry Pi Zero, it ought to nonetheless be capable to run no matter you’d usually use the diminutive PC for — even Minecraft (for about 15 seconds, anyway, till it froze).
Digital Grenade is promising a construct video someday quickly that’ll element the method, must you wish to construct one for your self, however within the meantime we’ll simply need to admire their present computer-mouse from afar.
