MouseBot

This is a creation that takes advantage of our old trackball mouse. It uses a motor to spin the trackball either this way ↗ or this way ↙. If you connect it to someone's computer you can annoy the heck out of them by gravitating the cursor toward the top right or bottom left corner!

It's especially good on Macs, as you can see in this video, because in System Preferences you can set the screensaver to start when the cursor goes to a corner of the screen...

Hi NXTMONGER, I noticed you wanted tread links, go to www.legoeducation.com find the word: parts on the scrool, go to page three, and you got yourself tread links with sprockets for $12unless, you want the ones on page four for $15 with no sprockets and $12 for sprockets, I suggest page three.

Also think I can be part of your blog, I can use more attention, and while your at it, think you can tell me how to make you an author of my blog please. Thanks.

Actually I would rather use this blog to showcase just my own creations, but I am honored by you wanting to join. I will definitely join your blog though. And thanks for the treads advice, I will try to get some.

Alright, so I think you have the email I sent you.

Actually NXTMONGER, If you have the email "the new one I sent you" I think it is okay to take you off my blog so we can make a new blog, and of course, your other friends can join.

P.S. Put the trial tank contest in your challenges blog.

Actually, never mind about the email and all I said, I'll just make another blog myself.

Well, never mind about the last comment, it is really up to you. Sorry about the comments, I couldn't say everything because they were all made at different times.
