Toys for my left hand

Toys for my left hand

All this stuff lives to the left of my iMac. From left to right: remote switch for Belkin power strip, Belkin universal memory reader, Griffin PowerMate, Sonos "Sovjet" controller, Belkin USB hub with thumbdrive, 3Dconnexion SpaceNavigator, Palm TouchStone. In the background: speaker for Lucy. Eight years old and still going.


I don't want to know what kind of "toys" you have for your right hand ;-)

I still have a SpaceMouse (with serial connector!) that I used for CAD back in the day. Nostalgia!
Your SpaceNavigator has the nice haptic "want to touch" look. Would actually like to use one but the apps I use these days don't seem to require/support 3D mice.
Just curious: For which applications/work do you use yours? You are usually a good source for new ideas :)

I explain difficult concepts in simple ways. For free, and for money. Clue procurement and bullshit detection.
