Turn your optical mouse into a handheld scanner


Mouse_scanner Sure, it’s no Docupen scanner, but that little optical mouse you might have with you could work in a pinch. You’ll need some software to make this happen and you won’t be wowed by the quality, but this is an interesting approach to re-usability of peripherals to add value. This project isn’t really for the faint of heart, but if you’ve got some free time and a spare mouse in the house, this could be fun.
