It's no secret that we are fans of the steampunk aesthetic here at Unplggd, we've only posted about it once or twice before. Perhaps you have seen some of the steampunk gear we have posted and wondered how to go about creating something like that for yourself. Here is yet another piece of steampunk gear, but what we love about this piece of tech is that since it's featured on Instructables, there are great DIY instructions that accompany the photos of this neat mouse.

Instructables user MissBetsy shows us how to create a super cool steampunk mouse.

To make this project, in addition to an old computer mouse you will need marbles, styrene, and several pieces of assorted pipes and tubes (this is a steampunk project after all), this includes 1/2" copper pipe and assorted fittings and connectors. Some of the tools needed for this project include a drill, screwdriver, and a vise.

There are several more supplies and tools needed for this project, check out the post on Instructables for the DIY instructions and full list.
