Product review from user
As a MMO fan and constant player I will tell you this ¡V after programming the mouse and hitting that LOTRO sweet spot, it's been my gaming computer's mouse of choice since its arrival, and my Razer is sitting to the side unplugged. If you're looking for an edge or a helping hand, give the Sandio 3D Game O2 a shot.

The Game O2 is easy to use once you get the hang of your finger placement, and the ergonomic wrist rest makes it very comfortable. The mouse can be used as a regular scroll mouse when you're not using it to play games.

Serious Game Summit 2006 (Washington DC)
Serious Game Summit (Booth #103) October 30, 2006 Sandio Technology Corporation, a 3D input technology company, will present its new, advanced, innovative, and highly affordable 3D input technology, 3DEasy at the Serious Game Summit 06, October 30 through October 31 in Washington DC.

3DEasy includes 3DEasy 6DOF 3D input devices and a 3DEasy Software Developer Kit (SDK). The 3DEasy input devices, which might be a mouse, keyboard or other form factors, will enable PC users to be more productive and will enhance their total experience in 3D applications, including gaming. The 3DEasy SDK helps 3D application and game developers improve usability.

“Under the leadership of Microsoft and Google, 3D applications are no longer just for engineers and artists,” explained James Hsieh, spokesperson for Sandio Technology. “Google called its SkechUp software ‘3D for everyone’ and many 3D applications today are very affordable some even free. However, no 3D input devices designed for everyday users have been both affordable and easy to use. PC users must utilize their 2D mouse together with a keyboard or an on-screen navigation tab to move in the 3D environment. They must also either memorize different key combinations or waste valuable visual bandwidth, staring at the navigation tab. The result is that 3D input is the weakest link in the 3D value chain. The new Sandio 3DEasy mouse is designed to help PC users ‘fly through’ 3D environments, as in Google Earth, with a mouse that PC users are accustomed to.”

The Sandio 3DEasy mouse series evolved from the traditional 2D mouse. PC users can use the mouse to move along and rotate about x, y and z axes. In terms of functionality, the 3DEasy combines features of a leading 2D mouse, such as Logitech G5, and the leading 3D input device, as in 3DConnexion Spaceball.

The Sandio 3DEasy is patent protected, compatible with both 2D and 3D PC applications, intuitive (the objects or camera view move toward the same direction as users’ finger gestures) and is affordable for common PC users.

Sandio’s 3DEasy SDK, combined with 3DEasy mouse, allows application developers to create new images with “6 degrees of freedom (6DOF)” which were previously impossible to implement and execute using conventional 2D mice.

Sandio’s 3D input technology is also applicable to the needs of a variety of industries and professions, including PC and console gaming, GPS, medical applications, robotics, aerospace, multimedia, virtual reality, process control, education and training, as well as benefiting the military.

Sandio Technology is offering onsite demonstrations of the 6DOF 3D Mouse, and 3D Touch Cube, at Booth #103 in Serious Game Summit 06.
