  1. What are you using for power supply? It looks like you've connected to 5V and GND on the Pi Zero.

  2. thats pretty sweet actually, for authenticity i would have kept the scroll wheel, cut in half and glued it so it takes no space below but still protrudes on top, nice job though

  3. I suggest trying to make one with a Pi Zero now, and see if you can keep the original mouse internals alive inside 😀

  4. This $8 little computer is now inside something that would normally plug into a PC.
    See description box for parts, software and random price links (video is unsponsored)
    Oh, to add, these run on a USB wall adapter power supply.
