The computer mouse

A couple of years ago, a YouTuber named Slider2732 created a “PC In A Mouse” using an Orange Pi and an optical mouse; it gained lots of media coverage and praise from the DIY enthusiasts.

Fast forward to today, another YouTuber, whose channel goes by the name Electronic Grenade, has invented a similar device. Called “The Computer Mouse,” it’s a completely functional computer with a normal-sized, 3D-printed mouse.

Talking about the core of the computer, there’s a Raspberry Pi Zero inside it that powers the device. There’s a 1.5-inch screen attached to it that you can use to browse the web and run commands on terminal to satisfy the nerd inside you.

For input, there’s a sliding keyboard that you can use to type in text. You might need to struggle while doing so because its placement is a bit odd.

While you can run Minecraft Pi edition on this computer, you’ll face some issues as Pi Zeo isn’t that powerful.

All in all, it’s like a DIYer’s dream coming true. You can watch the video below to see The Computer Mouse in action:
