A thimble which, thanks to a GY-521 and an Arduino Leonardo, is able to control the mouse pointer.

I play video games a lot, and I love Minecraft too, but honestly I had never thought about this type of use.
Use as a mouse per se, for example to turn the view, has the sensitivity problem that is, at least for how it is set now (but I already have an idea of how this problem could possibly be solved), if the thimbleKrox is tilted it always moves the mouse at the same speed regardless of how much it is tilted thus making the turning completely long at low sensitivity while at high sensitivity it would make it difficult to frame the enemy with precision.
However, this problem could be easily solved by changing a few lines of code.
If instead we go to use the mouse only for the click function (or even for everything once the other problem has been fixed) we must try to have a CPS as high as possible, I therefore removed the possibility of right-clicking to prevent it from being triggered by mistake and I removed the clicks limiter thus reaching a CPS of about 14 (with the mouse I have 7.5).
I have no idea, however, whether using this type of "mouse" is considered cheating or not.
Sorry for the late reply but in the last few weeks I have been very busy and had not seen the question.
If you have any other questions or I have not been clear at some point please ask.

No, to be able to do this, instead of Arduino Uno, you need a board with a 32u4 chip, such as an Arduino Leonardo, Explore, Zero or Due. The accelerometer is fine.
