Logitech owned 3Dconnexion announced today that its 3D mouse product line that includes the SpaceNavigator will be supported by Second Life starting in mid-April. The 3D mouse is going to offer better control and coordination with 3D objects in the game.

The 3D mouse promises to make things in the Second Life world more effortless and intuitive by making things like flying and moving easier. The mouse will also allow Second Lifers to build more easily as well according to 3Dconnexion.

"3Dconnexion's 3D mice make the Second Life world experience even richer because avatars can now move in a more intuitive and fluid manner - movement no longer needs to be predicated on keyboard commands," said Dieter Neujahr, president of 3Dconnexion. "Beyond supporting a more immersive virtual experience, 3Dconnexion's 3D mice bring professional 3D design capabilities into the hands of Second Life Residents who enjoy creating their surrounding world, as well as to groups using the Second Life Grid platform as a collaborative tool for education and business training."
