A good URL for information about the Feelit Mouse is
as I found it using Lynx.
I got a reply from John Cullen at Control Advancements, the company
which makes the "Virtual Reality Mouse", a more expensive product
that is already available. I think I will forward his message to
these lists. I don't think these devices will completely
revolutionize the way we use the graphical user interface, because we
have keyboard equivalents for most of what these devices can do. But
I think they will have a place in training, and also in computer-aided
drawing and interaction. If you could use it to help you create
forms in a program or spreadsheet, or tell your OCR software how
you wanted to re-zone a page, it would help. It's something to watch
