Mousepaths + Hiroyuki Hamada

Feltron's Mousepaths over 24 Hours

My mousepaths while writing this post

These images are recordings of mousepaths using a Java applet by Anatoly Zenkov. In addition to being an interesting aggregation of usage data, they look pretty cool (especially the ones over shorter time periods). The third image is my mousepaths while writing this post. The most telling are my frequent trips to the corners to cue my Exposé actions. Important to note that the black spots are where the mouse stopped for a period of time, not clicks as I thought at first. You can download it here: PC Version | Mac Version.
“S” – save image. “R” – restart.

Hiroyuki Hamada

The last two images are pieces by Hiroyuki Hamada. Completely unrelated yes, but when I saw the mouspath images I immediately recalled these from a couple weeks ago on bdif. I’d worry about you if your mouseclick data looked like this.

Lauren –

The window that it runs in doesn’t show up as full screen on your monitor (if it’s of a higher resolution). It does, however, still register every part of your screen (you can test it out by moving your mouse to the corner of your screen, noticing that it goes to the corner in the Java applet window). The image will be the size of your monitors resolution once it’s saved.

Hope this helps…

i wish it worked for dual monitors…most of my stuff i do on my left screen but my desktop is fixed on the right and it’s only catching those mouse-ings.
still pretty cool though

Where does this save the images to? And do you just press S on the keyboard to save or what?
