I added a button to the BoilerMake Badge and wrote custom software that converts it into a mouse. A light spins around representing possible directions to move the mouse. Holding down the button at the right time moves the cursor in that direction, and tapping quickly clicks the mouse.

The Badge Mouse provides a unique way to control a mouse by only using a single button for control. By only requiring a button push, it allows people with muscle disorders such as muscular dystrophy to navigate a computer.

I created a game called "Don't Hammer Me" where you play as Purdue Pete and dodge BoilerMake hammers using the Badge Mouse as a controller.
