Hack Your Wireless Mouse into a DIY Power Glove

December 21, 2013 at 10:00PM from Lifehacker

Here’s a neat little weekend project. With an unused wireless mouse (or you can pick one up for $7 on Amazon) and a pair of gloves, you can build yourself a cool ‘power glove’ that acts as your computer’s mouse.

Here’s all the equipment you’ll need:

  • Wireless mouse
  • Screwdriver
  • Conductive paint
  • Wiring
  • Scissors
  • Glove
  • Velcro Stickers
  • Gaffer tape
  • Battery

The procedure is best seen through Household Hacker’s full video, but here’s a brief of what you’ll need to do: Pop the circuit board out of the mouse, carefully detach the left and right mouse buttons as well as the main sensor, connect them back to the circuit board with conductive paint and wires, and put them all onto the glove. Use Gaffer Tape to safely wrap the circuit board after you’re done and stick it on your glove with velcro. Similarly, stick a battery to the glove with velcro and connect it to the circuit board.

There’s no soldering involved and it uses simple materials, so you shouldn’t be scared to try this one out. The end result seems to be a mouse that is responsive enough for gaming and precision image editing, Household Hacker says.
