View Full Version : N64 Cartridge Mouse

I'm doing my first mod and thought I'd put a mouse in a N64 game cartridge. I just wanted to a simple mod to get me in the mood.

Here's some pics:

Comfort isn't really a factor. It's more that I need to do a few small projects and learn from them/stuff them up before I do something bigger and more expensive.
I'd rather spend $10 on learning something (even if the end result doesn't work), than a few hundred on something that doesn't work.

Job done! :)

Here it is:

I used pop rivets for the buttons. You can see in the pic the bit I cut off next to a complete pop rivet. I used the top part as the button and with the flange it can't fall out.
Also in this pic you can see the remains of the card from the cartridge. I chopped it down so the cartridge still looks normal.

So there you have it, a fully functioning optical N64 cartridge mouse!
