What do you mean, a spaceball?

imo, the hot ticket for manipulating objects in three dimensions. USB doesn't work on Irix but the serial ones still do.

Daphne Eurydice Zuniga ... only in Berserkely :P

Yeah, had to ditch that old cruft so they had space to incorporate important stuff, like ... umm ... well ... errr ... oh heck, I'm sure they had some reason.

That would be very cool. I'll have to find a serial one. Are there any libraries for reading their data (I assume something like quadrature)?

Tons.

3D Connexion has a driver, free for Yewnix now, and an sdk.

On Irix it's easy -> add serial device -> choose "Magellan" (original name for these things) and away ya go. Shows up in confidence tests even. It's an xinput extension to X and pretty standard, so other Unix-like systems should have something similar.

On Loonix, there's a few : libSBall and at least one other :

http://xray.bmc.uu.se/markh/notes/joy/spaceball.html

I built the libsball thingy and a demo once, it worked on Irix also.

I am pretty sure that an Irix usb driver would not be that difficult but am too stupid and lazy to accomplish that ...
