Enjoy This Wireless 3D Mouse And Keyboard
We have seen different types of human interface devices (HID), such as mouse and keyboard. In older versions of the mouse, optical sensors were used to detect movement relative to a surface, thus they required a smooth surface to function properly. They could work in only two coordinates. With advancements in technology, we are now talking about 3D user interfaces (3D UI). So, let us make a 3D HID device which has the capability to work in all three coordinates
