Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The 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.
