In recognition of its ergonomic and innovative design, the 3Dconnexion SpaceExplorer 3D mouse was awarded the iF Product Design Award 2008 in the computer category.
The prestigious international award is one of the world's oldest, best-known design competitions and the awards are bestowed every year during CeBIT.
Used in conjunction with a traditional mouse and keyboard, the SpaceExplorer 3D mouse is the ideal input device for professional designers, allowing them to simultaneously pan, zoom and rotate three-dimensional objects.
Labelled function keys in easy reach of the fingertips enable designers to master 3D applications without having to reach for the keyboard.
"We are delighted that SpaceExplorer won the iF Product Design Award and now carries the iF quality seal," said Dieter Neujahr, president of 3Dconnexion.
"We focus on ergonomic design to provide our users with maximum comfort.
This award endorses our strategy of designing products that offer an ideal combination of design and functionality."
3Dconnexion's lineup of innovative 3D mice - SpacePilot, SpaceExplorer, SpaceTraveler and SpaceNavigator - gives users an enjoyable 3D-navigation experience.
Unlike traditional computer mice that only support movement in two dimensions, 3D mice enable intuitive control of 3D objects and models.
