Pen Mouse

      Disclosed is a PEN MOUSE for personal computer whose shape is
like a pencil.  This pen style mouse is very useful when this is used
in a small desk top space.  Another advantage of this pen style mouse
is that the operator can use this mouse just like a pencil feeling
when the operator wants to write a sentence or a picture.  The
disadvantage of this pen style mouse is that the click button is not
useful for the operator if the click button is attached on the
housing of this pen style mouse.  If the operator wants to push the
click button when he is pointing at the push the click button when he
is pointing at the target object precisely, pushing the click button
will cause the mouse tip to be deviated from the targeted pint.  To
improve above disadvantage, the click buttons of the mouse were
located on the keyboard by this invention.  Mouse button placed on
the keyboard will provide more stable click operation of the buttons
comparing to the buttons on the mouse housing.

      The Figure shows one of the implementation of this pen mouse
and the click buttons which are located on the notebook PCs keyboard
area.  The pen mouse is connected to the mouse port of a notebook PC.
