Hi gamers,

I have written a small program with the Dark GDK and the ManyMouse API to demonstrate my prototype of a 3D input device.

It is called the Nautamouse and uses 3 optical mouse sensors to input movement to the demo program in 6 degrees of freedom (Descent style).

You can see it at

Let me know what you think!

Looks like a very clever bit of work.

I know it looks clumsy and enormous at the moment but once you have a smaller version it will be much more impressive.

Isn't this already a very similar product though:

We use these in CAD already and they are very refined and easy to use. You would have to have something quite different to avoid litigation.
