In the Magic Mouse, for example, applied technologies, which allow to detect tiny changes in a smooth surface that, in turn, gives the possibility to use it without the pad.
The use of chromatic sensor (or sensors) not only turns the mouse into a portable scanner, but also improves the mouse as input devices. The invention provides for the use of LEDs, a vertically emitting lasers or other radiation sources that allow you to configure a specific length of light waves.
The light is reflected from the working surface on the chromatic sensor. Assessing the response of the sensor, the mouse can adjust the intensity of radiation in a particular place. Taking into account peculiarities of the surface of the gadget will be able to choose and modify a number of characteristics. For example, to work on a clean white table may require a higher sampling rate compared to the dark rug. Switching to a weaker radiation will save electricity.
On the casing of the mouse raspolagaetsja display where you can view the scanned images. The display can be created using the technology of OLED and other technologies. In addition, sometimes it can be used simply to increase one or the other fragment before sending data to the computer.
