I haven't had a chance to use any of 3Dconnexion's 3D peripherals for at least 5 years. I was excited about them then and they continue to hold a fascination for me. As someone who spends more than 3/4 of their waking hours in a 3D virtual environment, I am interested in anything that can make the experience more efficient and enjoyable.
I can't wait to try them all at the Exhibit hall.
