we need this working in blender, and the game engine yesterday, and also if someone can mass produce them for cheapo I would buy one…

The result is the 3DTouch, a thimble-like device that sits on the end of a finger, equipped with a 3D accelerometer, a 3D magnetometer and 3D gyroscope. That allows the data from each sensor to be compared and combined to produce a far more precise estimate of orientation than a single measurement alone. In addition, the 3DTouch has an optical flow sensor that measures the movement of the device against a two-dimensional surface, exactly like that inside an ordinary mouse.

3d mouse ftw.

That is so awesome! It can probably be manufactured dirt cheap! Imagine having one on each finger. That would give a new dimension to sculpting! The only problem would be battery life. All those sensor usually eat quite a bit of power and there is not a lot of space on the device for batteries.
