Building the FlipMouse

The FLipMouse parts can be purchased as DIY-Kit from hackerspaceshop.com or self ordered according to the OpenSource Design files. There is a construction guide for the DIY-Kit (which comes with a laser-cut acrylic case) and another construction guide for the self-3D-printed case. The construction guides contain all information how to solder the PCB, assemble the sensor carrier board and connect the mouthpiece. Additionally, videos show the construction and setup (see below). After the FLipMouse has been assembled, the firmware should be updated (see instructions in the FLipMouse user manual). Then, the FLipMouseGUI software application can be downloaded and started. The FLipMouseGUI displays live sensor values from the device and offers all settings and parameters in order to configure the device to individual needs. Information how to use this software and how to set up, mount and clean the device can be found in the FLipMouse user manual.
