How about 2 sensors for 1 mouse?
There was that guy that drilled his stylus inside his mouse and played with it on top of his tablet. So that's basically your absolute positioningPurple
How about 2 sensors for 1 mouse?I'm unsure. I'm not a tech-knowledgeable guy, but the way I see it, for absolute positioning, you need the surface to be the thing transmitting the data, not the sensor. The sensor has no idea where it is, it just knows where it's moving. You'd need some sort of surface that's able to read inputs to be capable of absolute positioning.
The thread continues here.You could always glue/doubleside tape a cloth surface or a sheet of sandblasted plastic/aluminum on top.
I did it at first as it was a proof of concept that worked, hampered by the really shitty mouse shell of choice and now lies in the abandoned wasteland.
Also, the height difference between the tablet and the table surface is awkward and takes time to get used to.
How about 2 sensors for 1 mouse?Doesn't work. You would need something that tells the mouse its exact position in a given place which almost certainly requires a digitizer for anything feasible (unless you want indoor gps or something which I heard has alot of input lag).
I think 2 sensors could work. Although there'd be quite a bit of latency as your mouse processes/calculates where it is and then sends the proper signal for your cursor to move there. But of course, it would never be as accurate as a tablet puck thing because we don't even have completely perfect sensors. Use any "perfect sensor" mouse for a long enough time and eventually you'll find it was perfect enough (and obviously for this to be the sensor and not human error you'd have to get a robot to move the mouse purely by translating and not rotating). Also the mouse would have to keep track of where you are and there'd have to be a starting position and you'd have to never lift the mouse. Why? Because if your mouse wasn't in a starting position how would your mouse know which direction you're going when both sensors detect you moving up?maybe 1 more button on the mouse for repositioning and reset
Anyway, that's just my guess but I don't think any company will ever make such a mouse and I probably didn't think of the loads of other problems that would be encountered with such a mouse.
Theres seriously no point in this. Just get good.well there is a point to it, the main advantage between mouse and tablet is absolute positioning, therefore if mouse had absolute positioning, it would be easier to develop muscle memory. And please, get good yourself before you tell others to
It would also make some map possible for mouse users. Some maps give no breaks to counter mouse drift.
