I am considering making my own mouse pad, what would be the best material to use?
a mouse pad.
Find a old scanner, peel off the spongy top
im wanting to redo it from scratch
copper would be awesome if you could pull it off
or copper with a nickel or aluminum inlay, sort of like This but in mouse pad format
3~5mm Acrylic with one side sanded
What?...the ones you find it tubes or the actual element?
The trick is finding a surface that tracks well. I would experiment a bit and find a surface that tracks well on your mice. Then cut it into w/e shape you like and cover the bottom with something that will add a bit of friction so it wont slide.
Try depleted uranium. Its good for the skin too.
It'll give you cancer
A block of wood.
Cancer you say?
a perfectly flat sheet of glass
Teflon from a non-stick frying pan
Arrg get him away!!
I know you're talking about making your own, but I'm totally hooked on C4.
I bought the sheet & applied it to my desk, but you could attach it to your base of choice.
Its in polish, but i think you will get it
I wouldn't do that to my mom's pan! she'll kill me
Tear off a piece of cardboard and decorate it.
ooh, get another desk. then you can have a desk on your desk, and use that as a mousepad.
I made my own mousepad. Get a piece of aluminum from Home Depot or something. Coat the aluminum in Teflon spray. It costs about $5, and is the best mousepad you have ever used. Also don't forget rubber feet.
So can i not use silicon? You know just make a mould and then fill it with silicon?
A hot chick's stomach.
If your not gonna coat it, the it would be too grippy for the mouse to move.
