Hey, if you look for fancy input devices under CAD and 3D 
type applications for SGIs and the traditional software that 
ran there, you will find all kinds of amazing stuff.  I have 
seen ads for a input device that was a ball that you applied 
force in any direction.  It was used for manipulating and 
moving in a 3D environment.  All this was Unix stuff only, 
mainly SGI, in 1995-6ish.
