Step by Step Hommade Make Mouse Jiggler

Ever found yourself needing to keep your computer awake but didn't want to resort to the same old software solutions? Well, dear reader, let me take you on a journey through the creation of a hardware-based, homemade mouse jiggler using the versatile Picobricks kit. It's a tale of ingenuity, fun, and a bit of DIY magic!

How to Make Own Mouse Jiggler with Raspberry Pi Pico

Our story begins with the unassuming yet powerful Raspberry Pi Pico at the heart of our project. This tiny board, when combined with Picobricks, turns into a DIY powerhouse. But what exactly is a mouse jiggler, you ask? It's a device that simulates mouse movements, keeping your computer awake and bustling with virtual life, even when you're not there!

Lets Coding with Python

First, let's dive into building our mouse jiggler with BricksIDE. This friendly environment makes coding as easy as pie. I'll walk you through each step, peppering in bits of code and a dash of humor to keep things interesting.

Arduino C Codes

And for those who prefer the classic taste of Arduino C, we've got you covered too. Let's explore how to bring our mouse jiggler to life using this evergreen language.


#include <stdio.h>
#include "ACROBOTIC_SSD1306.h"
#include <Wire.h>
#define BUTTON_PIN 10

const int motorPin = 21;
const int potPin = 26;

bool motorState = false;

void stopMotor() {
  analogWrite(motorPin, 0);
  oled.clearDisplay();
  oled.setTextXY(1, 1);
  oled.putString("Push The Button");
  oled.setTextXY(3, 3);
  oled.putString("For Switch");
  oled.setTextXY(5, 6);
  oled.putString("Mode");
}

void setup() {
  Serial.begin(9600);
  pinMode(BUTTON_PIN, INPUT);
  pinMode(motorPin, OUTPUT);
  Wire.begin();
  oled.init();
  oled.clearDisplay();
  oled.setTextXY(1, 4);
  oled.putString("Mouse");
  oled.setTextXY(2, 6);
  oled.putString("Mover");
  oled.setTextXY(5,2);
  oled.putString("Press Button");
  oled.setTextXY(6,5);
  oled.putString("For AFK");
}

void loop() {
  int motorSpeed = 40;
  if (digitalRead(BUTTON_PIN) == HIGH) {
    motorState = true;
    delay(100);
    oled.clearDisplay();
  }

  while(motorState == true) {
    if (motorSpeed == 40) {
     
      analogWrite(motorPin, motorSpeed * 2.5);
      delay(1000);
      motorSpeed = 0; 
    } else {
      
      motorSpeed = map(analogRead(potPin), 0, 1023, 15, 25);
      analogWrite(motorPin, motorSpeed * 2.5);
    oled.setTextXY(1, 2);
    oled.putString("You Are Now ");
    oled.setTextXY(4, 6);
    oled.putString("AFK");
    }
    if (digitalRead(BUTTON_PIN) == HIGH) {
      motorState = false;
      oled.clearDisplay();
      stopMotor();
      delay(300);
    }
 } 
}

And Mouse Mover 3D STL Files

Now, for the pièce de résistance! We're adding a 3D-printed enclosure to our project. This isn't just any box; it's a custom-designed home for our mouse jiggler. It cleverly hides the motor and creates a perfect playground for our mouse.

FAQs

How does a mouse jiggler help?

A mouse jiggler keeps your computer awake by simulating mouse movements. It's perfect for those long downloads or updates!

Is it complicated to make a DIY mouse jiggler?

Not at all! With basic components and a little guidance, anyone can create their own mouse jiggler. It's a fun and practical project!

Can I use any other microcontrollers apart from Raspberry Pi Pico?

Yes, but this guide focuses on the Raspberry Pi Pico. Feel free to experiment with others and share your results!

Happy Building! Remember, the journey of DIY is just as rewarding as the destination. Until next time, fellow creators!
