Sandio Introduces 3D Mouse for Gamers
Posted on 12-May-2006 09:58 by H Willan. | Tags Filed under: News.

Sandio Technology Corporation has announced the Game O', a 3D gaming mouse at the annual E3 Expo.

The Game O' offers gamers a way to move forward, backward, sideward, jump, crouch, pitch, yaw and roll without using the keyboard. Gamers' left hands are free to execute commands that were mutually exclusive with WASD keys. In RTS and RPG, gamers are able to issue game commands while simultaneously adjusting the screen view during online battles, as they no longer have to move the cursor to the edge of the screen to move the camera.

In addition to enhancing the abilities and experience of individual gamers, Sandio Technology offers a software developer's kit (SDK) for their 3D mouse that allows game developers to develop new characters with "6 degrees of freedom (6DOF)" moves that were previously impossible to execute.

The Game O' is a laser mouse with multiple scan resolution of up to 2000 dpi (400, 800, 1600) and a 16 bit mouse data packet, as par Microsoft's standard 5-key mouse.

The device is compatible with both 2D and 3D PC games and applications. Estimated to have an price of US$79.99, Game O' will be available directly from e-Bay and sometime in the US summer this year.
