Surfing on http://metku.net I found an interesting tutorial on how to mode one old mouse by installing an LED on it. I had this old mouse hanging around so I decided to try it myself.
This is the result after soldering the LED with a resistor to the logic circuit.
That’s about it, but as you can see, it has a weak light.
After some time, I decided to paint my mouse black, which looks much better, and changed the LED to something stronger.
That’s after soldering the new yellow strong LED. It has a nice effect now!!!
Done! I put one butter-paper covering inside the mouse, so it would look better, and it wouldn’t show the LED itself.
What do you think?
