SpaceOrb 360 Real-Life Controller



6D Control
With the SpaceOrb 360, you'll move through your favourite 3D action games as if you were actually in the game itself. Simultaneous Six-Degrees of Freedom Control (6D Control) technology allows gamers to STRAFE, ROTATE and FREELOOK on ANY AXIS and create complex moves like Circle Strafes and Barrel Rolls instantly & easily!

The SpaceOrb 360 breaks the barrier of clunky, linear keyboard or joystick control with full digital 360 degree control in EVERY and ANY direction. Simply twist, push or pull the SpaceOrb 360's Spaceball PowerSensor ball and experience the fastest, smoothest and most aggressive game playing on the planet.
Not a Joystick or Trackball!
Because the optical technology of the SpaceOrb 360 is advanced, it can not be classified as an ordinary joystick. The Joystick, Trackball, Mouse and Keyboard are 2D devices. The SpaceOrb is a TRUE 3D Game Controller, giving you SIX AXIS (6D) manoeuvrability in a 3D game.

Force 'n Torque Sensitivity
Patented SENSITIVE FORCE 'n TORQUE technology built into the SpaceOrb™ 360 PowerSensor ball senses up all the pushes, pulls and twists that you apply among the axes and translates them into fluid and smooth movement in your game - with over 1,000 levels of speed!
Pretend it's Your Head
Think of the PowerSensor as your head, and move the head in the way you want to move on-screen. To move forward, just push with your thumb on the back of the ball (or head), and you'll move down the hallway. To move backward, pull from the front of the ball, and you'll go back. To look left or right or spin, twist the ball from side to side and you'll look or spin on screen.

Powerful Digital Interface
Adding a true DIGITAL interface through a powerful serial port and how fast and how slow you move in your game depends on how much force you use on the PowerSensor ball. To move forward slowly, lightly push the ball forward. To move faster, increase the pressure until you reach top speed. The SpaceOrb is a 10-bit device allowing for over 1,000 levels of speed -- and with the Windows 95 and DOS Customisers, you can fine tune axis sensitivity exactly to your needs. You can even adjust the sensitivity of EACH AXIS with our new GameMaster software.

Six Rapid Action Buttons
Six customisable buttons on the SpaceOrb 360 provide instant access to essential gaming functions like Firing, Changing Weapons, Jumping and Crouching and Opening Doors. Each button is completely customisable and bindable either through the SpaceOrb customiser or the game itself.

Ergonomic Design
The SpaceOrb 360's ergonomic design keeps your hands comfortable and away from the desk, allowing you to play your 3D game in a relaxed position - greatly reducing constant hand fatigue and stress that is a burden among keyboard and mouse users.

Proven Technology
The SpaceOrb 360 is only the latest product of its kind. Spaceball technology is being used by over one hundred thousand industrial engineers and developers in 3D CAD/CAM and Virtual Reality applications all over the world.

Built for Gamers, by Gamers
The SpaceOrb 360 is actually the second generation of 6D game controllers. The original was called the Spaceball Avenger Game Controller. Since the idea of a TRUE 3D or 6D game controller was new, Spacetec developed the Spaceball Avenger as a "test-market" device. Hundreds of Spaceball Avengers were evaluated by actual hard-core gamers. That feedback was used to develop the SpaceOrb 360.
