3Dconnexion 3D Mice Now Supported by Google Earth 5.0


3Dconnexion 3D Mice Help People Explore the Ocean Floor, Travel Back In Time, Visit Mars, and Record Their Journeys

Fremont, Calif. — 3Dconnexion’s award-winning line of 3D mice can now be used to explore the 3D world in Google Earth™ 5.0, extending enhanced navigation control to the application’s newest features. With 3Dconnexion’s 3D mice, people using Google 5.0 can dive to the ocean depths, travel back in time with new historical imagery, and visit Mars with greater control and ease for a more natural interaction with the content-rich 3D world.

“3Dconnexion’s 3D mice complement the new features introduced in Google Earth 5.0, allowing explorers to learn and discover with greater ease,” said Dieter Neujahr, president of 3Dconnexion. “Navigating 3D sea-floor terrain or discovering topography on Mars becomes a more immersive experience using 3Dconnexion’s 3D mice, allowing people to enjoy the wonders of the Earth and galaxy thanks to a more natural connection.”

3Dconnexion’s 3D mice also help explorers of all levels enjoy Google Earth 5.0’s new Touring feature, enabling smoother recording of their journeys. Using a 3D mouse, people can fly from place to place and zoom in or out with cinematic-like camera views and enhanced visual quality so that others can follow their explorations.

“Google Earth enables people of varying skills to search, discover and share their experiences in the 3D world more easily, and to develop a greater appreciation for the world and its environment,” said Peter Birch, product manager, Google Earth. “3Dconnexion’s 3D mice provide a natural way for people to navigate and interact with the new features introduced in the newest version of Google Earth, making it an even more enjoyable exploration and learning experience.”

Unlike mice confined to motion on one flat plane, 3Dconnexion’s 3D mice enable people exploring in Google Earth to move in all three dimensions simultaneously. By pulling, pushing and tilting the 3D mouse controller cap, people using Google Earth can seamlessly soar around the earth, zoom on a specific location to view closer details, or rotate 3D scenes without stopping to select commands.
