SpaceNavigator is the New Mouse

— December 13, 2006 — Unique
A new kind of computer peripheral has been introduced by 3Dconnexion which will make navigating in virtual 3D spaces seamless and simple. The SpaceNavigator will offer you more user friendly and an alternative to the mouse movement and keystroke combinations currently used to navigate 3D environments or to move 3D objects.

3Dconnexion, a subsidiary of Logitech, developed the device in conjunction with Google so that it could work natively in Google Earth and Google SketchUp. Other 3D modelling programs such as AutoCAD can also utilise the SpaceNavgator.

The SpaceNavigatorâ„¢ is very easy on the eye and displays a curvaceous form. Its functionality is maximised using six optical sensors. Logitech stress that the SpaceNavigatorâ„¢ is not a replacement for a mouse, and propose that it should be used in conjunction with it. With the SpaceNavigatorâ„¢ in your left hand and the mouse in your right you'll be whizzing around with a freedom unfulfilled until now.

Grip, slide, twist, tilt, press down, and lift up the SpaceNavigatorâ„¢ to move seamlessly through 3D spaces and manipulate 3D objects. Supported applications are recognized and adapted to, freeing the user from the repetitive actions and enhancing creativity; ideal for architects, artists, students, and anyone else who wishes to enjoy the plethora of 3D environments out there.

If you want to experience the freedom of flying, then take a ride in a helicopter but if there's not one available to you then get yourself the SpaceNavigator™ and experience the next best thing – flying in the 3D world.
