Hi Thomas,
We have a Space Navigator and have been using it (well, mostly Tom  
Goddard has been using it, but the rest of us have tried it).  There  
is a video of Tom using this device -- see the bottom section of this  

and our group has tried some other things such as head tracking and  
force feedback, see
