Modern surface-independent optical mice work by using an optoelectronic sensor essentially, a tiny low-resolution video camera to take successive images of the surface on which the mouse operates. This page was last edited on 22 November , at You can also do some cool stuff in Quake. I’ll complain more about that later. In Microsoft’s own words, IntelliEye uses a tiny CMOS digital camera to take 1, pictures per second of the surface beneath the mouse. Inspired by the Microsoft Intellimouse 3.

To understand how optical flow is used in optical mice, imagine two photographs of the same object except slightly offset from each other. Other items you may like.

Ack, all of this for a mouse. Two choices, too pricey? IntelliEye uses a tiny CMOS digital camera to take 1, pictures per second of the surface beneath the mouse.

The amount that the edges of one photograph overhang the other represents the offset between the images, and in the case of an optical computer mouse the distance it has moved.


OK, well, there is a reason – namely to irritate me.
