Optical Mouse CCD
« on: November 13, 2007, 05:11:20 PM »
I found an old page on hackaday that has a hack to turn an optical mouse into a scanner, but the host link is dead now and I haven't been able to find a backup site.  Anyone familiar with what must be done to salvage the sensor and grab input from it, or any idea what sort of resolution the sensors provide?

Do a search on the Avago ADNS-2610.  You'll find source code for using it as a scanner.  It's actually a very interesting chip.
