I can’t write much more about this. Josh Mings (@JoshMings) covered it in a nutshell on his website, SolidSmack.com. You can read about my interim solution for integrating a 3Dconnexion (@3DConnexion) Space Pilot with a standard keyboard here:
Of course, if you all want to help me out and design it yourself you can enter the 3Dconnexion design challenge: http://www.3dconnexion.com/challenge or vote for the integrated designs already posted to the 3DConnexion Facebook page.
Design your ultimate 3D mouse – no holds barred!! The only criteria is to ensure your design integrates 3Dconnexion’s existing controller cap. After all, it’s the heart of a 3D mouse, so look after it!
Thanks again @JoshMings, @SolidSmack, @3DConnexion as well as @InventorTopixJD (Jamie pointed me in the right direction for the already submitted designs.)
