Every day of your computing life, you reach out for the mouse whenever you want to move the cursor or activate something. The mouse senses your motion and your clicks and sends them to the computer so it can respond appropriately. An ordinary mouse detects motion in the X and Y plane and acts as a two dimensional controller. It is not well suited for people to use in a 3D graphics environment.
Space Mouse is a professional 3D controller specifically designed for manipulating objects in a 3D environment. It permits the simultaneous control of all six degrees of freedom - translation rotation or a combination. . The device serves as an intuitive man-machine interface
The predecessor of the spacemouse was the DLR controller ball. Spacemouse has its origins in the late seventies when the DLR (German Aerospace Research Establishment) started research in its robotics and system dynamics division on devices with six degrees of freedom (6 dof) for controlling robot grippers in Cartesian space. The basic principle behind its construction is mechatronics engineering and the multisensory concept. The spacemouse has different modes of operation in which it can also be used as a two-dimensional mouse.
How does computer mouse work?
Mice first broke onto the public stage with the introduction of the Apple Macintosh in 1984, and since then they have helped to completely redefine the way we use computers. Every day of your computing life, you reach out for your mouse whenever you want to move your cursor or activate something. Your mouse senses your motion and your clicks and sends them to the computer so it can respond appropriately
Inside a Mouse
The main goal of any mouse is to translate the motion of your hand into signals that the computer can use. Almost all mice today do the translation using five components:
i need full report on space mose pls.............
pls send me in detail abt the space mouse ppt
see i think you got most information of space mouse
if you want

A space mouse or 3D - mouse is a 3D input device for computers. In the most common use cases, it serves to move into a virtual 3D environment, objects, or even to maneuver through a virtual 3D landscape.
The technology was developed in the 1970s at the German Aerospace Center Institute of Robotics and Mechatronics, as required for one of the robot control input devices, to cover all 6 degrees of freedom (DoF). In the 1980s, there was time in Europe (1982) as in the U.S. (1983) patents, which were described a control system, in which diminished the forces and torques through a hollow sphere of the human hand. At the same time was in these years in the DLR Institute of Robotics and Mechatronics working on similar concepts to Roboterbedieunng.
During the 1980s, established this universal 6D input device but rather as navigation and positioning aid in virtual scenarios, within the scope of 3D graphics and CAD applications. The development group of the DLR Institute obtained for 1985, international patent In the field of robotics, the space mouse still a firm place in the handheld control device has at one of the largest robot manufacturers found in the world, with KUKA robots. Here the user can move through the exercise of the power attached to the PHG Space Mouse, the robot intuitively in the right direction. This technology is available at KUKA since 1995 and is also in the following control and PHG have generations of stock.
With the prices of technology is the unit now also increasingly in private homes to control games or to navigate Google Earth.
The space mouse consists of a body in the form of a puck, which is mounted on a pedestal. This body can move in any direction to move a few millimeters, press, flip and rotate. He jumps back after the release like a joystick to its original position. The measurement of the 6 components (translation and rotation) is made by friction and wear-opto-electronic sensors. Furthermore, the space mouse has several buttons that can be individually used by application programs.
Working in three-dimensional space is much more difficult with an ordinary mouse. Therefore, the developers of the free (with the GPL licensed) 3D graphics software Blender 3D Connexion with the company have created a plug-in that the commercially available 3D mouse Space Navigator in the program integrates Blender
