Isometric dot paper and mice...

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I'm probably being a complete moron here, but I have to ask. What would happen if I used a piece of paper with a tiny isometric dot pattern on it as a mouse pad using an optical mouse? But like I said, probably being a moron...

It would probably not affect anything, why do you ask?

I just had to wonder If such a simple repeating pattern like that would make a better mouse pad or if it would cause some weird behavior or something like that.

The pattern would likely not be fine enough to help track. The best way to help it is probably just a flat matte surface. I used to have a table that was slightly concave around the mouse area and it always mistracked because of uneven movement speeds. Glossy surfaces also like to affect the sensor.
