Of course It only shares the mechanics, not the electronics. It had proportional movement according to the pin-out in the manual:




This is a Spectrum digital variant more similar to the Patkány, pictures thanks to World Oof Spectrum:





Observe the plain cable and the strain relief boot at the mouse side, it is the very same one of the Patkány.




It had the same polyurethane  ball with the same diameter of 32mm, but not the polyurethane pulleys. At least they have not been mentioned on the three sources we have now.

Then, it can be that Aztec subcontracted the Patkány to the the company behind that name.



Other products of the same make.


Edit: I have found that there was a "Digimouse" and an "Anamouse", so it stands for "digital mouse", a Joystick-mouse like the Patkány.

Let me say only one last word about this device and then I will shut-up my mouth.....



This Spectrum version of the Digimouse is adapted by means of an interface Kempston clon( the Spectrum KC, also commercialised by Nidd valley), so it could be that on a future, a person with very few problems like me, would try to find one of these mice to connect it to the EnterMice....

I was joking, I have a lot of normal problems, like everybody...

Ok, not the last word...  Now some boring facts I have found searching the web.

It seems that Nidd Valley Micro Products Ltd. founded on 1983, still exist today under the name Nidd Valley Medical Ltd. The company changed of name on year 1995. The founder was Engineer Mr. Keith Edward Tippey, director until his resignation on 2003.  Previously he had been director and founder of a company named Kelan Engineering Ltd., now dormant under the name Kelan Circuits Ltd.

The actual business of Nidd Valley Medical Ltd. is the manufacturing and commercialisation of electro-stimulation devices oriented to pain release.
