Is there a tutorial somewhere on building your own optical USB 2.0 mouse? Or at least for creating custom USB cables for mice or other purposes?

I've never seen any. I am 99% sure that optical mice have a microcontroller and they also have a CMOS like unit in, so you would need to be good with microcontroller programming, and have access to a cmos-like sensor. Probably above most of us skill wise.

cords are hackable. there just a few wires, and are color coded, so you could add cord, or even put an inline usb hub. So go to town, just make sure you have an extra incase something goes wrong. :wink:

if you want a custom mouse, just take the interior of a bought one and build a casing
