The new Spaceball FLX enables you to pan, zoom and rotate 3D models with
simultaneous 6D (six degrees-of-freedom) control as you build, modify
and inspect designs -- within your application!
With the Spaceball FLX PowerSensor technology, you can easily move or rotate
your 3D by gently pushing, pulling or twisting the PowerSensor ball.
The model then moves in the direction of the force or twist applied.
The Spaceball 3D Motion controller also provides smooth and dynamic
model manipulation in that the greater the pressure applied to the
ball, the faster the model moves or rotates. Its ergonomically designed
base lets you rest your hands in a very natural, relaxed position,
reducing hand and arm stress and fatigue.

require an external power supply. Simply plug the Spaceball Serial
Cable directly into the serial port of your system.
