SpaceOrb 360 is a 6DOF computer input device that is designed to be
operated with two hands. It has two right-index-finger buttons and
four right-thumb buttons. It interfaces with a computer through an
RS-232 serial port using a custom binary protocol. Drivers for the
device exist for Mac OS, MS Windows and Linux. The device was
released shortly after the introduction of popular 3D games such as
Descent II and Quake. The SpaceOrb was especially suited for the
gameplay of Descent because of the complete freedom-of-motion
afforded by its rendering engine. There was strong support for the
device in both Quake and Quake II, but the WASD-type
keyboard-and-mouse controls eventually became more popular. As of
the Half-Life engine (based on the original Quake source), there
was specific support for the SpaceOrb's capabilities.
