Kinda disappointing that step 1 is to buy a mouse on Amazon :D https://github.com/great-houk/mouse-project
Ergonomic mouse design is hard to do after all. But I wonder if custom mice could grow into a market that is as big as custom mechanical keyboards.
Yeah, I find it fascinating that the goal is to add the PCB and firmware, where 99% of my problems are finding a mouse that fits and where the buttons keep working after a few years.
The shit software is a necessary evil, but on my list of prios it’s way at the bottom.
Still a cool project.
I guess you can also look at it as a way to recycle a broken mouse if you have one lying around. :)
