This is a very odd question, but I'll ask anyway... Does anybody know the engineering behind a computer mouse? My Mom gave me the idea to make a special kind of computer mouse, but unfortunately, I have no clue how to program the circuit board... Does anyone know how to make a mouse OR a website with the answer? Thanks so much!

    Do you have a spare mouse at home ? Is it a roller one or the laser mouse ?

    If you want to make a mouse, the most important thing to know is how the mouse sends its data to the computer. If you want to work with a USB mouse, you can check out (the last one is quite technical. Try google for other information of the USB HID class): http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/USB_human_interface_device_class http://www.usb.org/developers/devclass_docs/HID1_11.pdf For a PS/2 mouse, try the following link: http://www.computer-engineering.org/ps2protocol/
