NO RATINGS
I watched some videos of the SpacePilot Pro, it looks like an interesting device. As someone who does solidmodel drafting, I am not sure where I would use this. I suppose it can let your other hand perform some of the movement options. Sound like it mends you with the machine, making us all CAD jockeys to the max. Perhaps my 3D models are not advanced enough to require this level of control.

My mind immediately went to "how can this be used for video games?" Could it be an excellent replacement for the WASD key layout. At $350+, I don't think I will be investigating it any time soon. An interesting product non-the-less.
