Title: Frankenmouse analog + cherries on Abyssus - warning ugly inside!
Post by: roads on 06:58 AM - 11/18/13
I have no idea how this feels but I have to try. I opened the Abyssus and there is room for a full trailer park. I will discuss this with teensy master W11ce as it wont work without him as usual. If he likes it we do it.
The abyssus is perfect for this. Its 70g so there is 20g until perfect weight is surpassed and it has a pretty good sensor as well as hardware DPI and polling rate switches.
It will not beat any beauty config but it could be nice to use.

four red cherries with low blank keycaps

PSP analog stick, no need for side buttons if 4 are on top.

Yeah always wanted to try my beloved Cherries on a mouse.  It looks so disgusting. I name it warthog.

and you can press those comfortably?

looks a bit high placed, maybe it works better when setting those two keyes on the same level as the regular mouse surface?

Yes look HÖHÖHÖHÖHÖHÖHÖHÖHÖHÖ

LOL, dunno yet but it could be nice. Definitively suitable for claw grip only. And you have to have a big self consciousness to place that on you table. No more sex guaranteed except with yourself.

Post by: W11cE on 03:43 PM - 11/18/13
Lol what do you want to that? Does teensy even fit inside?
Title: Re: Abyssus 4 button Cherry and analog stick mod
Post by: roads on 03:56 PM - 11/18/13
Yes you can put about 7 Teensys inside there, the mouse is practically empty. I mean empty empty.
I want a joystick at the side that PSP one and 6 cherries on top. I will call the mod Frankenmouse

The middle caps need to be narrowed a bit. I was looking for narrow keycaps but did not find any.

To be honest that looks disgusting. Is it even comfortable to use?

Yes W11ce its by far the ugliest mouse I have ever seen. It’s the crossing of a warthog and a beetle. I had the idea as I was shooting with the left hand on the N52te for some time not to jitter with the mouse and I liked it. I stopped as I could not shoot fast enough with the left index finger. Yes it feels comfy but ts not yet put together. Waiting for your Teensy programming connection plan and the PSP stick.
It’s a funny prototype for sure.

The 6 cherries minus the desoldering of the Scrollwheel only ads 7 g to the weight. My wifes kitchenscale is showing 74g so its still optimal weight and the Teensy and the joystick can come.

roads you are insane. i mean way more than House insane, and that was quite the draw of the character!

i can see why you did this though. you are planning on ditching next gen controllers entirely in favor of the orb+mouse combo ?

Whats a controller?

Yes first intention is its comfy and as the cherries are read there is very little force needed to press those buttons. Testing will show on the Edge Beta.

Lol roads looks hilarious but a cool project nonetheless... will keep up to date on this one.

Just connected the left and right MB to the Cherries. Now the feeling is very awkward. It feel more like shooting a gun than with a mouse-button. You are literally pulling the trigger. It brings your aim off more however as the movement is longer. So its no good. Was still nice to try.

Try a shorter switch like cherry ML
Title: Re: Frankenmouse analog + cherries on Abyssus - warning ugly inside!
Post by: roads on 10:13 AM - 11/21/13
Yeah that could work but it ends here for me. The feeling is not that more exciting than the regular mousebuttons. I feel after a trillion of klicks I am used to the mousebuttons.
Title: Re: Frankenmouse analog + cherries on Abyssus - warning ugly inside!
Post by: W11cE on 03:50 PM - 11/21/13
Was pretty sure this would end like this. With mouse you want short press distance, which makes cherry mx switches bad for this. And those are too big for mouse too.

Yeah was still fun to try and the shooting feeling is interesting.
