  • Introduction of Optical Pen Mouse 
  • The optical pen mouse is a usable and handy input device to interact with computers for writing as well as freehand drawing purposes. It can also be used to write precisely on a paint application with perfect control. This device indeed gives a comfortable experience to the user. The traditional mouse can be used only for specified purposes viz. clicking, dragging, scrolling, etc. but it becomes difficult to draw an object on applications like Microsoft Paint and Microsoft Whiteboard. This disadvantage of traditional mouse i.e. the inability to draw is overcome by the optical pen mouse created by me. This device is a boon for Professors as it helps them immensely during their online lecture sessions. This optical pen mouse is a ‘plug and play’ type of device that can be connected to a laptop or a PC via the standard USB port, without the need of a device driver or an extra requirement. The main circuit of this device is the mouse circuit only and the software that comes within the operating system package.
