The Ball less mouse use digital signals and small powerful camera to track the movement of the mouse rather than the old rubber ball. This optical mouse provides perfect reliability and accuracy. It captures images at a rate of 1,500 images per second since the under side of a mouse is dark and is illuminated by a red laser like light that is generated by a red light diode. Operating at 15 million instructions every second a digital processor operates by comparing images in determining what direction the mouse is moving.
