Mouse Displaying Picture

MapQuest has started! Well….it was going for a while, yet we have just reached a turning point. Our first sensor, an optical mouse, has been hacked to read directly from the camera module. At the moment….I am not disclosed to say how we are using the sensor….but it will be pretty cool, trust me. We are currently working on a lens system for the mouse (yes…it does have to be made out of Lexan), and we need to view the mouse to do this. We attempted to use an already written program to talk o the mouse, yet it didn’t work. We needed to write all of the code for the Arduino (the board that communicates to the mouse), and we needed to rewrite some of the Java script that was running on the computer to talk to the Arduino and display the picture. And yes….we aren’t going to be using the LED on the mouse, don’t worry. :)
Second part should be coming later this week!
