Not Optical Mechanism
This trackball is pretty bad. It is not optical (nor laser). You can tell it's not optical because you don't see a camera (LED) window in the ball socket. If you open the thing, you see that the ball rolls two bars, and the bars have slotted wheels attached. It works like 1990's mechanical mouse with a ball under. [see How Mouse Works]
