I have found a silicone bouncing ball of about 31,3mm diameter. Once mechanised the moulding flanges with sandpaper, it seems to have the minimum measure. I will test it this evening at home.

It seems to work with this little Basic program:

10 PRINT JOY(1)
20 GOTO 10


Then I have tested the mouse with the EGI, to discover that one of the pulleys is a lightly eccentric, so the vertical coordinate doesn't work very well.

Also the resolution is very low, I have to lift the mouse two times to make one fast diagonal. But I have also noticed that I don't have to lift the mouse with a slower movement. I have to move at its rhythm...   

It can be that on a text environment it is enough.

I want to know if a 32mm ball could fill better the hole. Tomorrow I will buy some more gum washers to find the perfect pulley to continue the tests.

You said it, almost...

I have bought four more gum washers, but now I can see that they are all very bad cut. It is a miracle to have found one that is perfect. I will mechanise them to work.

And about the ball, I have found a nice bag of bouncing balls on a party shop. but they have at least 33mm dia.. I have to grind one of them to a perfect sphere of 32mm.

Here you can see some patkány action. The resolution of the movement is near to zero.... But if the mouse is slowly moved it can serve for the EGI.

Now I know what the extra buttons do. The Left switch deactivates the vertical movement, and the Right one cancels the horizontal movement. It can be seen on the video.





Edit: sorry for the vertical video, Later I will try to fix it.

Here is the fixed video.

This test has been done with a 31mm ball, but it is too loose in the hole when the patkány turns. I have to test it with a 32mm ball.
