This fun little app has been floating around my circle of Twitter friends for the past week so I thought I’d share it here. I’m not sure if it’s officially called MousePath but that’s what I’ve been seeing it called, so we’ll stick with that. This mini-app allows you to track all of your mouse movements and clicks for as long you want to record it. After awhile you start to see patterns emerge, such as you can see in the two images above.
The images were created last week over the course of a night. I was mocking up a website in Photoshop so that’s what most of those lines are. It was probably around 4 to 6 hours of mouse moving total. The first image was probably around 3 hours in and the second about an hour later. I don’t really know what you’d do with these images but it’s interesting to see your own work patterns.
