DIY mouse feet.

Mouse feet and where to find them.

We did an article about repairing the Corsair Scimitar mouse but there was one thing that we forgot to cover upon rebuilding that mouse which is the mouse feet. Otherwise known as mouse skids or even mouse skates. But mouse feet from most manufacturers are made from 0.6mm of substance known as PTFE (Polytetrafluoroethylene or in america it can also go by the it’s copy-written name “Teflon”.) Then, a layer of VHB (very high bond) double-sided tape is applied to the bottom. Would you like to know more?

Corsair M65 Pro RGB gaming mouse – Disassembly and repair.

A Corsair M65 has now ended up on the repair bench. It is ours. Crap!

So the Corsair M65 mouse we use on one of our primary PC’s is failing after only a year of operation. Honestly, we didn’t expect it to fail so soon! Partially because whenever a person purchases gaming hardware for everyday office and blogging activities such as what we do. Under less stressful environments the mouse should last a long time! Perhaps it’s also prior to this mouse we installed a Microsoft IntelliMouse for almost 15 years(blog article here). We thought that the corsair should last at LEAST that long. We should also note that during the entire year of operation with this mouse no known abuse has happened to this unit. No liquids or extreme physical abuse such as any long term gaming.

Ouya Support – Keyboards and Mice

What about hooking up keyboards and mice to play on the Ouya?

The android operating system that Ouya is based on supports keyboards and joysticks with your Ouya natively. In fact it’s far easier to use the internal browser for Ouya to go online with a keyboard and browser then using the keypad interface with the Ouya joystick. As for better game operation there’s only one game that is known that works very well and this is provided that your Ouya is already rooted which is the quake and doom collections by progger10 which allows you to bind mouse and keyboard control to the game effectively playing games on your android device as if you were on a normal desktop PC.
