DE1004057960 A UPAB: 20060714 NOVELTY - The mouse (2) has two acceleration sensors (14, 16). During normal use their linear sensor axes (10, 12) both lie in a horizontal plane and are at 90 deg. to each other. Inclination of the mouse is determined by comparison of signals from both sensors. As a function of this determination, and from other actions, control operations are initiated at the computer. USE - A computer mouse. ADVANTAGE - The mouse can be operated when hand-held. This is in addition to, or instead of normal mouse function. Use of acceleration sensors for this purpose has advantages over known use of three-dimensional inertia sensor technology, which is elaborate and subject to drift. Particularly simple implementation and reliable results are achieved by the new design
