DIY Rumble Mouse

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
My $18 Rumble Mouse.

I was kicking around the interwebs late lastnight when i came across a DIY project someone did where they made a Standard USB optical mouse into a Rumble Mouse, and i thought to my self... why the hell not!!

I had everything i needed, minus the actual mouse. I didnt feel like hacking up my Microsoft 5000, so i popped over to WalMart and got the cheapest mouse i could find that was 1)Full size 2)USB Powered 3)Optical.

Ended up paying $17 for the mouse. 900dpi resolution... not too crappy.

The rumble pack i scavenged from an old Shick Quattro Power shaver that had a battery in the handle. Took quite some time to break it out of the case with a pair of side cutters. Had to be careful with the tiny wires buried in the molded silicone.

After taking apart the mouse and using a multimeter to find the +5v from the USB i sent that to the rumble pack and took the ground from the Left mouse click to the negative on the rumble pack.

I plugged in the USB to my tower and it worked!! Did it ever work!! HOLY CRAP!! way too much power!! It took about 30 min of scouring my room until i came across a couple small potentiometers. put one inline with the +5v and rumble pack and now i have some control over it!

I just need to find a tiny switch now to turn of the rumble pack when im not gaming and ill be good to go!!

Holy crap! That's pretty nifty haha.

Although it would probably be more of an annoyance for me than anything; like console rumble pads.

right now it works whenever the left button is clicked. It kind of a novelty to have on games like COD and MOH. i still need to find a switch to disable it when im not gaming

Lol, that's my question.

If not, you made something you can impress the ladies with.

If i turn the dial all the way up it can get quite 'intense' alright... lol it made my hand tingle after just a minute.

My microsoft wireless mouse is still connected since it is paired with my keyboard so i use that when not in games.
