  Possibly the price of exploring new spaces? It seems to me a different 
interface is needed. A input dynamic device sensitive to the needs of the 
application. Those who are aware of what a "Wacom" is to the digital graphics 
arts. The Wacom wand is sensitive to location, pressure, tilt and the driver 
also incorporates essential mouse functions, Thus the artist is cut free of 
the limitations of the mouse, and of course providing the application being 
interfaced to is Wacom smart. My thought is the digital glove which 
quantitizes the human hand and the applied pressures, It appears that the 
devices are out of the lab.   http://www.geocities.com/mellott124/glove1.htm 
With the Open Source techno {knows} it could be reality, soon.
