I write to introduce the first consumer-level 3D input device that allows fast and proportional 3D /6-DOF input of gamers¡¦ actions for swinging sword/bat as naturally as possible. Besides being suitable for baseball/golf/tennis/sword games, it is also an alternative to the current ¡§Guncon¡¨ technology for inputting the gun¡¦s pointing direction in shooting games. The main advantage over the Guncon technology is that it can be used on all types(Plasma, LCD, projector, CRT) of TV and monitors, while the Guncon can only be used on CRT TVs. It is also competitive in terms of pricing ¡V about the price of a typical 2D mouse ¡V while performing the function of magnetic /ultrasonic trackers that cost thousands of dollars. Game development is also simple. It fills in the last huge void in 3D gaming ¡V previously the gamers can only use 2D input devices (mouse, keypad, joysticks, etc) to super-impose their controls in the 3D virtual world. This device, together with 3D graphics hardware and Direct3D software development package, would for the first time give the mass consumers the full natural 3D interactivity in the virtual world. Logitech will be showing the prototypes at the coming E3. Please visit Logitech's booth during E3 or visit www.affineontech.com for demo videos.
