Looking for more agility to navigate the virtual 3-D world of Second Life? 3Dconnexion just announced that its 3D mouse product line will be supported by the Second Life Grid, the platform behind the popular 3-D world, starting mid-month.
Traditional mice control motion on a two-dimensional plane, while 3DConnexion’s 3D mice are tuned for a 3-D environment, thus are more intuitive for controlling actions like flying, panning and rotating without relying on any keyboard commands. Advanced navigational capabilities offered by 3Dconnexion’s 3-D mice include more fluid control over avatars, easy access to camera views, quick-switch between flycam mode and avatar motion and control of 3-D objects in build mode.
The 3DConnexion SpaceNavigator, SpaceTraveler, SpaceExplorer and SpacePilot mice range in price from $99 to $399.
