Portable 2hand with smartphone

Post by Hypersonic » Fri Jul 06, 2012 12:17 pm

Currently there is only one form factor: set next to the keyboard held into place with a heavy base.
How about something similar to the iCade mobile, except with a 3dmouse instead of a thumbpad?

It shouldn't be heavy, as the only reason the Space Navigator is heavy is because of the heavy metal base used to prevent it from moving.
The device itself should be cheap to manufacture, as it would basically be just a harness not constructed with any electronics.
The 3dmouse and harness would have to be designed to be locked together, or not be modular and simply constructed as one piece.

I've described it in more detail here in a separate page (as the page can be revised from time to time.)

I'm interested in a device like this. Have you found anything that fits your description?

Thanks in advance,
