Computer Mouse and its types

A computer mouse is an input device that is most often used with a personal computer. Moving a mouse along a flat surface can move the
on-screen cursor to different items on the screen. Items can be moved or selected by pressing the mouse buttons (called clicking).
Types of Computer Mouse
Mechanical Mouse
Optical Mouse

Mechanical Mouse: A mechanical mouse has inside of it a

ball which comes in contact with the desktop or mousing
surface. As the user moves the mouse around on the
desktop, the ball rolls with these movements. This rolling
is detected by two wheels at 90 degree angles from each
other which are positioned in this way so that one wheel
can detect up & down movement, while the other detects
left and right movement, together they can reliably detect
mouse movement in any direction. A third wheel, the
guide wheel is spring loaded and presses the ball against
the two sensor wheels.
Optical Mouse: Optical mouse use LED and photo
technology to detect movement, rather than a physically
moving ball. It tracks the cursors movement through
photo sensors which take over 1,000 pictures per second.
This instantly tells the computer the position of your
mouses cursor.
