" The stainless Mouse"
« on: March 04, 2007, 03:19:37 PM »

The project which I started to do about ten months ago now is completed. And I am looking forward to hearing your opinion about it. It is only my mouse mod 3.
I am the administrator of the site www.modding.ru
1.My mouse mod was based on Microsoft IntelliMouse Optical, USB+PS/2
2 More than 90 per cent of plastic was cut out.

3 All the details ( including the wheel of scrolling and the buttons) were cast from the stainless steel 18/10 (which is used for medical instruments)Some decorations were cast and soldered.

The connector USB was cast from the stainless steel too.


The wire is inside the steel casing.

I made a special case of glassy plastic for this mouse mod.
The mouse mod is in the case.

The hand is on the mouse.

How to make the case for the mouse mod.Everything is rather easy.
You need

Then you need to buy some special plastic for mounting works.

The case is covered by plastic. It takes me ages to fit the plastic to the case. Then you cut out the handles and the legs.
After that you cut the microporus (soft) rubber according to the shape of the mouse mod.

Then you make the shape from the mouse pad ( they are soft and made of cloth)
Then you cover it with velvet.




Then you change the legs.

Now you have the result.

wow!

very nice work.  This reminds me of the scarabs from The Mummy.  A scarab design would look great with this kind of material.

Crazy dude.  That took a lot of talent and work.

Is it usable though?  I imagine it being much heavier than a normal mouse.

Gorgeous cat.  I'd be concerned about the mouse discolouring or leaving metal residue on your hands after holding it all day.
