So today I played in Virtools with the idea of using Natural Point\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\’s TrackIR as an input device. Of course any 3DOF (it needs only 2DOF) tracker would fit (the Wii-mote for example).

Here\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\’s a video (slightly higher quality (6.4mb) ) of my experiment. I\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\’m quite a beginner at this input method but it\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\’s really easy to learn and write fast.

The 3rd dimension could be used to switch the output characters (uppercase, numerical, punctuation etc).
