-I've often thought that computer mice would be useful ​premade ​input devices for movement, and button sensors, so this is just a start to collecting information about them.+I've often thought that computer mice would be useful ​pre-made ​input devices for movement, and button sensors, so this is just a start to collecting information about them.

 +Potential uses for computer mice: 
 +  * Rotary optical encoders using mechanical mice roller wheel sensors 
 +      * eg robot motion (direction and distance) feedback 
 +      * eg wind speed indicator 
 +      * eg dynamometer 
 +      * eg speed measurement 
 +  * Use the whole mouse (either mechanical or optical) as a position tracking sensor that supplies motion X-Y info
