A high-precision haptic transmission and feedback device which may be seen as a three-dimensional computer mouse. It is based on a patented mechanical structure that makes it superior to all comparable products in terms of weight and the sturdiness of the design. The combination of mechanics with electronics and software makes the Omega a high-tech input and output device that does facilitate deliberate movements in three-dimensional space and is able to transmit forces and angular impulses to the hand of the user. Besides functional aspects, the design has been principally intended to convey precision and quality.
