They are calling it 6 axis like this:
twist x move x
twist y move y
twist z move z

the standard joystick is 2 or 3 axis:
twist x
twist y
twist z (on the better ones)

a 3-d mouse is 4 axis:
twist x
twist y
twist z move z

a standard mouse is 2 axis:
move x
move y

(I am counting the x-y plane to be horizontal and z being vertical)

That's 4. If you could pick the mouse up and have that be read, that would add a 5th. If you had your mouse suspended in midair so that it registered down as well, you pick up your 6th.

I don't believe the mean dimension in the cubic sense. More of a spacial sense.

IE. "Joe's personality has many dimensions"....

Bruestle has it right, there are six degrees of motion. A mouse has two, the X axis and the Y axis. This device will let you move forward and backward, thats 1, up and down, thats 2, left and right, thats 3, then there is pitch forward and back, thats 4, bank left and right, thats 5, and yaw left and right, thats the six degrees of motion.

you people are getting it confused. currently right now humans can percieve 3 Dimension. X axis, Y axis, and Z axis. These axi(plural?) is what gives up a 3d view of everything. Forward and backwards is one dimension since its on one axis. LEft and right is another and up and down is the third. Those are the ones we can actually see.

Forth dimension is time. Since we can't do that, we can't see it. I think what the article meant is axis not dimension. but even then that sounds wrong.

Nope, there's at least 11. Read up on your String Theory.

That makes sense. Thanks for clearing that up for me.

Wasn't reffering to a mouse when i said 3 and a mouse (standard ones) moves in two dimensions, not 4.
