The qwerty keyboard and a mouse are still the main input devices used today. The last upgraded mouse was introduced by Apple in 2009; the Magic Mouse. The Magic Mouse is a multi touch mouse and can be used to recognize simple gestures. Computer games and visualization environments are typically played out in a 3D world projected on a 2D screen, or a 3D environment. A 2D mouse is not very useful in a 3D environment. On July 2013 Leap Motion released a device which can be used as a 3 dimensional mouse. This paper presents the usability experiments and first results.
