Space Balls.....

Post by uunix » Wed Jun 20, 2018 4:01 pm

Anyone actually using one in a product rather than spinning that demo cube around?

Not personally and perhaps also a little off topic, but they're (still) using those in the future ;-): i.e. in The Expanse series - at least on the Rocinante - for thruster control I assume:

I have a Spaceball 2003 that works with StudioTools at least. It's fun to just fly around in there.

I know this topic popped up on nekochan some time ago and there were members having the drivers for Irix.

ok so I went to https://www.3dconnexion.com/service/arc ... ivers.html and downloaded "xdriver_4-64_irix.tar.z"

I don't have a spaceball yet (just ebay'd one), but I will let y'all know if it doesn't work, but if y'all have something else let me know

Hahahar! Yeah, I could barely operate in CATIA with one, and who knew you can fly a spaceship with them! :XP:
