The Morse Key Mouse by cazouillette The Morse Key Mouse by cazouillette
This is a mouse I've been working on the last few weeks. Don't ask me why I thought taking an antique Morse Code tapper and turning it into a mouse would be cool... but, there you have it.

Brilliant concept. Really nice. It looks so much better than an ordinary mouse.

Ya, A) WTF does one get a hole of a Morse Code thing... B) That's for a standard Dell mouse so I'm going to assume it works for mice with similar inner workings

A) You can pick up a key @ [link]
or here: [link] (Both of these sites have goodies for other projects too...)
B) You can go crazy with a ton of diff. standard mice. Mine was done using this particular model: [link]
This one worked for me especially well, because the guts snap right into the brass base of the morse key like it was built just for it. (I killed half a dozen mice looking for one that "fit", btw... )

Let me know if you need anything else. I'm sure whatever you do will be more flash than my spartan design.

How astounding! I have never seen a key tapper modified for use with such a strange machine before!

Fantastic, just saw this as I was perusing Datamancer's laptop build thread. You gotta be proud of that.

That's a fantastic idea! It'd go so nicely with a type-writer keyboard. It's great to see these SP creations used in the home ^o^ Keep up the good work!
