Autonomouse / Computer mouse


Autonomouse is a self-powered computer-mouse. It is driven by the usual motion. A 2-axis mechanism inside the mouse produce the electricity by a traction wheel with a small generator. (see mechanism picture) The design should underline the mechanism in a simple and clear way. The cylindrical form on the sides are not just a formal reference, they're also buttons. They allow the user to remove the mechanism to clean it or fix it professionally, without throwing the hole mouse away. On the bottom of the mouse is a on- off switch, which gives the user a visual response of the battery level.
