Handtouch Mouse

Handtouch Mouse

By: Khai Nguyen

This hand touch mouse uses sensor engineering with this unique tool people would have fun making one of them themselves. Instead of going out to buy one of these it’s fun to build one yourself and it’s cheaper. There are also other ways to build it but more importantly, this project will help you get an idea of touch sensor uses.

Required

1. 0.1″ (2.54mm) Crimp Connector Housing: 2 Pin – we need 6 of these.  Can use a different size, as long as you have enough for 12 pins total.
2. Male Crimp Pins for 0.1″ Housings – again 12 total
3. Multi-core wire
4. Small washers – you guessed it, 12 total
5. USB to USB Micro cable
6. Breadboard. This size or bigger is great
7. Header pins – 3 sets of 12 pins, and 1 set of 6 pins
8. MPR121 chip on a breakout board, again by Sparkfun
9. 3.3v Pro Micro – a mini Arduino board made by SparkFun
10. 5x jumper wires – different colors preferred, or single core wire can also be used.
