Hands get sweaty when playing? Read on...

I bought plextor CD burner (for $20) and it had a useless fan in the back.



I decided to install it into my mouse. It's a 12 volt fan, so it will be extremely quiet on 5V USB or PS/2 power.
I centered the fan and drilled 2 holes for srews, then drilled a 3mm hole in between. Then I used a set of drillbits making it bigger and bigger. Finally I used a stone to expand it. Then I used a 25 cent coin to expand it even more.






After that I took anti-fat-spray lid from a frying pan and cut out part of the aluminum net. Then I used a 5c coin to press the grille, making it 3-dimenstional:



Then I replaced one of the LED inside with a blue one, drilled a 6mm fole on top of the mouse and inserted a transparent pill made from a white broken LED. Here's the final product:






Aftermath:

I can't sleep with 1000 LEDS on. It gets to the point where there is an eery green glow. Nice alarmclock btw, I think I have the same one. When it goes off, does it let out a sound that will scare the shit out of you and wake you up out of a dead sleep?

I've seen that one done before. It's an intricate mod. So I take it you have to buy an new frying pan? And you did all that sitting on your carpet? No kitchen table or anything. I like the pics of your setup. You can a true gamer pic from a regular computer user pic when the keyboard is shifted to the left like that lol Wink I like all the red. Congrats. I'd never attempt to do anything like that to my mouse. Maybe if it stopped working but def not while it's in good condition. Wartexs got balls.

It's kinda hard to see but what is your modem sitting on?

If anyone needs a fan mouse it's wartex Smile

Modem is behind the computer (lights half inch below mouse), and it's standing on a roll of TV cable that used to go from wall outlet to my TV tuner.

No, I assembled it without testing, and it doesn't spin. I just have it for extra weight.

I can install the blender blade as your door handle. Whenever someone touches it, capacitance sensor will trigger the webcam, that will do image analysis. If it does not recognize a person as a friend, motor will spin the blade.

Dude you are fucking amazing at crafting stuff. That grill piece looks perfect. Too bad about the screws though, as it'd be a bit better without, but still amazing work right there.

Bump. Reuploaded images. Yeah, the screws are kinda ugly but could be fixed with car body filler and spraypaint. Or hot-glued.
