    New SpaceNavigator is cheap, lacks Mac support

    Many posters have lusted for the 3Dconnexion SpaceNavigator but were put off by the $250 price for an 'i-Mate on steroids'. The newest version is now just $59, but doesn't have Mac OS drivers or SDK.



    Can some of our coders take a look at whether it could be read from Cocoa and other serial I/O code? It can be twisted left/right like the i-Mate, but also supports tilting front/back and left/right, panning front/back and left/right, and panning up/down. And it has two buttons.

    My guess is it could work with USBOverdrive. And if it is a HID (which I believe it is), a custom driver should not be much of a problem.

    Hello:

    A Mac driver for SpaceNavigator will be made available towards the end of the first quarter, 2007.

    Feedback on OS versions and applications used is always welcome, either here or on our 3Dconnexion forum, www.3dconnexion.com/forum.
