The work on this robot was started in early 1989 with a purpose in mind to create a robot that can vac the floor satisfying. For the designer it was a tough job because he do not know a lot in those early days. So after starting research on sensor systems, algorithms and all the other things being necessary he started the work. The project speed was very slow and many times it was left over. But it is said that the more time you waste the more you gain, he got many benefits and 100% control over all details of the project.

This post is only about disadvantages and limitations of different mouses. If you want to read about history and descriptive information about mouse then read my previous post by clicking here. I will soon write about advantages.
- The main problem with this mouse is of dust.
Due to rubber ball, the dust sticks to it and in result operation of mouse becomes problem.
- When dust gathers, it takes some time to clear it.
- Due to frequent cleaning the precision is lost gradually and erratic movements.
- Movement of mouse is sometime erratic even if there is no dust.
- It needs a Mouse pad.
- It does not work on non-uniform surfaces.
- May have problem on glossy surfaces such as glass.
- Power usage: It consume more energy due to light beam which is always on.
- It needs a single color pad. Multi color pad make this mice confused.
- It is very high sensitive and because of lights some people find it annoying.
- It works on flat surface only.
- Dirt and germs can gather on surfaces which is unhygienic
- It is reported that Laser mouse give problem using on some tissues.
- It does not have any big disadvantage/limitation that's why it cost high.

As a game maker I became interested in 3d designs because I wanted to learn how one make 3d designs and use them in games, I went through many softwares but could not found any suitable for my purpose then I heard about a very famous software 3d Studio Max, which is used worldwide and also many 3d films like Shrek are designed with the help of this software so I got that software and started learning it. After hard practice of 4 months I was finally able to design and make my own creativity, I took start from small objects to buildings but due to busyness I stopped my practice. These designs and buildings were made/designed by me in 2009 for fun purpose to show my imaginations and creativity to my friends but now I wanted to show these designs to my internet friends so they can see them and give their comments.
Intellectuals in any society can affect the trend of thought which as a subsequence can result in alterations in society itself. To a great extent, people are always affected by any kind of art they like. And intellectuals are those persons who are gifted by God the talent to create this art. A society, no matter how barbaric it has become, can develop and progress as a moral to all if it has intellectuals with true heart and soul.

It runs in our veins with blood. It's difficult from a righteous and one with morals to keep himself away from the love for his motherland. Whether it’s a war or a world cup semi-final match, whenever it’s regarding our country, it unconsciously grasps our attention. This love and devotion for our country lies in the deep inside us. By one or another way, we all try to express our feelings and emotions. Green and white flags on the balconies and roofs, stickers on the arms and cheeks, paintings, songs, adorning the city with flags and symbols, trying to catch every blissful moment in which our love to the country is expressed û these are all the ways and methods we use to express our love and feelings for our country.

For the first time the concept of creating a mouse to control the computer was introduced in 1964, but it did not became popular because public do not know how will they use it. After the introduction of Apple Macintosh in 1984 public got interest in it and called it user-friendly device. Although the first mouse introduced in 1972 was mechanical, the mouse was designed to work with the help of a ball that rolled across flat surfaces. The speed and movement was detected by rolling of that ball and then the information was reflected in where and how fast the computer pointer moved.
