DSI Intros HandGear 3D Navigation Touchpad

The HandGear is designed to offer users greater flexibility and freedom in interacting with computers, on the basis of its ability to give users a means of perceiving and interpreting size, depth of field, and other attributes. In addition to being able to simultaneously rotate and scale a virtual 3D object, for example, the system enables 3D camera pan, orbit, dolly, and zoom capabilities.

The HandGear will work with systems running either Windows or Mac OS operating systems. The price is to be announced. (DSI Technology; www)-JD
