Arduino project: USB foot-operated mouse switch

This foot pedal plugs into the Arduino case which plugs into your PC via microUSB cable. Arduino microcontrollers can easily be used to power fun projects like robots and even sending tweets to Twitter but they’re versatile enough to turn up in the strangest of places – like under your feet. We had a question from a reader about whether it was possible to create a foot-operated mouse switch to help reduce h ...

How to Transmit Mouse Data Using Xbee with Arduino

The PS2 mouse is an input device which can communicate with a host device using the PS2 protocol. It can be connected to a host device using the 6 pin mini DIN connector. The mouse will continuously give output which can be decoded to get the movement in the X-Y plane and also the status of the buttons on the mouse. The data read from the mouse can be decoded and processed to get the amount of change in pos ...

3D AIR mouse | Arduino + Processing

3D AIR mouse | Arduino + Processing I'm an Industrial design student, and last year as part of a course called "Technology as RAW materiel" I built this project as my final work. I work most of the time with SolidWorks, a CAD software for design and engenering. Rotating a solid body on the screen is done using the middle mouse button. I was looking for something more intuitive. This is how I ended up doing ...

USB Game Pad With Tilt-accelerometer Mouse using an Arduino

Make a game pad with an accelerometer inside! This project tutorial will show you how you can convert a console game pad into a USB keyboard mouse for playing games on your PC. The USB game pad can be used with nearly any software, such as a MAME emulator, game, simulation software, or for custom user interfaces. We'll start by turning the buttons of the game pad into keyboard buttons, so that pressing 'up' ...

Say Hello with My Roommate Mouse with Arduino

I live alone in a small house in Shenzhen, and i really I love this graceful and dynamic city. As an software engineer, I have no girlfriend yet, and usually nobody visit my room, I really love this because I do not need to clear my room! But, I found that I have a, or some, roommates recently: HELLO, my Roommates! Yes, my new roommate is mouse. The scattered crumbs pasta provides them enough food. I do not ...

Arduino Keyboard and Mouse Control Code

This example illustrates the use of the Mouse and keyboard libraries together. Five momentary switches act as directional buttons for your cursor. When a button is pressed, the cursor on your screen will move, and a keypress will be sent to the computer. Once you have the Leonardo programmed and wired up, open up your favorite text editor to see the results. NB: When you use these libraries, the Arduino tak ...

PS/2 Keyboard Or Mouse using Arduino

Arduino isn't limited to taking input from sensors: you can even connect up a full-size PS/2 keyboard just as if it were a "real" computer and type away! Connecting a keyboard to an Arduino may sound a bit odd (after all, it's just a little microcontroller) but keep in mind that an Arduino actually has more processing power and memory than a complete desktop machine of not so many years ago. Adding some per ...

Arduino Joystick Mouse Control Code

Using the Mouse library, you can controls a computer's onscreen cursor with an Arduino Leonardo, Micro, or Due. This particular example uses a pushbutton to turn on and off mouse control with a joystick. Cursor movement from the Arduino is always relative. So every time the analog input is read, the cursor's position is updated relative to it's current position. Two analog inputs ranging from 0 to 1023 are ...
