    Not sure why the winners (who presumably already own a 3D mouse) would need another one as a prize...but anyway, I'll be following this. It might be just what I need to convince myself I need one

    I would really like to be in this challenge but unfortunately I still live in the stone age and I use an ordinary mouse. So the solution for this problem is rather simple: 3Dconnexion should sent me a 3D mouse so that I could see how it works and in return they will get my video. I told you it was a simple solution :)

    I'd like to participate, some things are not clear for me. Does your model need to work in 3D? Like electronics and stuff, or do you have to make a non-working model and explain where you should use it for.

    Very nice contest with great prizes, definitely worth your time to enter.
    I also do not have or even had the opportunity to try a 3D mouse.
    Its hard to miss what you do not know.
    Maybe someone who wins a new one can hand me down their old one so I can try it? ha ha

    Somehow this challenge is a little back to front …. I am positive that the winner will be very happy to have two mouse (is it mouse or mouse’s?). But boy at the price he is going to need Steven Spielberg to convince me through a video to go out and buy one or that I even need one. I suppose I would be happy to have one or better still WIN one, but this challenge is for mouse have’rs not mouseless have not’s. …… “you think it’s a mouth-full to say you should try typing it”.

    Oh well …. So be it

    I like to work with traditional mouse, but I'd like to try a 3D flymouse as well. May be it can help in my work.

    Please 3DConnexion, send me a product sample, that I can take part in the competition so I can win an other one too.

    The poor fellow that wins can now get a helping hand from all of us.

    We can enter the challenge by design the best “desk top 3Dconnexion “mice” trap" …… hows that!

    John Moseley over 2 years ago

    Hi all, John from 3Dconnexion here. Thanks for the comments, I am glad the challenge has caught your attention! Let me address a few of the points raised.

    1. What kind of video are we looking for?
    You need to show how you use your 3D mouse & why you like it. Exactly how you do this is up to you - that's the challenge! We don't want to give too much direction as we are genuinely interested to see how "real" users would demonstrate their 3D mouse. Take a look at some of the user videos on YouTube already. Hopefully you think "I can do better than that"..!

    2. Why would someone with a 3D mouse want to win another one?
    Allan answered this already. The prizes available are top of the range 3D mice so someone with a SpaceNavigator (for example) would be very happy to win a SpacePilot Pro or SpaceMouse Pro.

    Thank you to all the non 3D mouse users that have made comments. We appreciate this challenge is not something you can participate in but we hope you follow it and find the results interesting.

    Good luck to everyone

    @John Moseley .... Sir. I think it is great and fantastic that you have given the “3d mouse haves” a chance to get an even better 3D mouse giveing them 3Dconnexion mice. But please give one or two or three or more for a fun design of a “3Dconnexion mouse trap” or maybe a “Desk top 3Dconnexion mouse protector”. All we would need is a front, side, back and top view of your product. I think this would truly show how many would really want to own a 3Dconnexion mouse

I need the money for school, so if someone could give me a heads up, that would be great. Thanks, and btw a 3-D mouse is something i cant go without anymore.

    Finaly, i have uploaded my entry! Yeaaay :-)
    Unfortunatelly i had no time to search for a better announcer, yea i was really late. Hope you guys can live with the sexy german accent :-)

    One note to the people who have run this challenge. To improve the requirements for future challenges, which includes videos.
    The overall length is really helpfull for the challenger and the judges and is a standard requirement for all video contest i have seen so far.
    The problem is, you can´t compare a 2mins tutorial with a 15+mins tutorial. If your want detailed informations about the produkt you need your time to explain everything. But not everyone want such a long turial, some will only have a quick insight. For me it was a short as possible overview for peoples like the most of my friends, who never seen a flymouse and can´t even imagine for what it is goog for. Both kind of tutorials have ther pros and contras and are really hard to compare.

    Anyway, this is my first ever uploaded file to grapCAD and it won´t be the last. Keep up the good work, i really like your site.

    Congratulations to michael for first place very well deserved and 2nd place great video well deserved.

    But i have to say very disappointed in the judges 3rd 4th and 5th place were very poorly chosen, I would like to especially point out the 6th place video that was a very pathetic choice as a winner, there are other videos which deserve 6th place and that video is definatly not even close!

    i expect a correction to these choice of winners as the chosen winners from 3rd to 6th is a joke!

    i would like to know kaspar if i may ask how did u and the other judges score the videos the comments don't tell me much it gives me a feeling use didn't finish watching half the videos.

    example:(lots of information shared with good use of vocabulary)
    was it the word "evolution" that got you a little excited?
    to be blunt he gave no real information to the mouse except its a input device that uses a 6axis controller

    and ill use my own as an example (brief introduction from experience 3d mouse user) really thats very disrespectful

    i would like to know from you and the other judges what that means because really! it isn't feedback it seems like more of a description to my video

    and I've been using the 3d mouse for 5 months I'm not very experienced

    i would like to know kaspar please and thank you
    i know i come across as rude forgive me but just stating the truth i can see other videos including my own who have worked hard n passionatly which defiantly deserve better than the judges beleive

    {ps sorry erik but its true your video doesn't deserve 6th place there are a few should have been before you.}

    @Luaay Well, I received 3rd place and I put quite a lot of effort fully explaining the benefits of a 3d mouse and features. I also believe it is subjectivity a good video in general. What makes you "very disappointed" about it? Seems like lumped criticism.

    Congratulations to all participants !
    In my opinion, the SUGGESTED CONTENT in description was incomplete.
    It should include:
    - artistic impression
    - games specific tips & tricks

    @kevin Whats 'very disappointing' is the 6th place your video was good I enjoyed the details and the head moulding part. If I was a judge though I would have went with micheal Futch's video or Martin meier. I found them to be more interesting and appealing I'm not taking a selfish point and saying my video is better than everyone else's. 3rd 4th and 5th are debatable videos they are not dissappointing, though 6th place is flat out wrong. Congrats on your video Kevin and my disappointment lies in 6th place Not in urs.

    First, thanks to all the congratulations! I'm really happy about the first place!
    I´m glad that my friend spoke the vocals. I have a terrible german accent... :P

    @discusion about the ranking: Paul Tripon is right. The description about the contest was not perfect. As i mentioned earlier, the length should be limited.
    But the content, which the judges want, are in the most cases less detailed.
    For example, there was a Videocontest from myvideo.de about a video with 99sec length and the only information was "about coffee".
    It was all up to you, to impress the judges with your "coffee video"...

    And i think this was the intension from the judges about this contest.
    Impress us with your idea, how to show the world the awesomeness of our products!
    So it is hard to doubt about the decision from the Judges, because it is a subtile decision about what they like or not.

    The only problem is, the difference between the showed information in the videos, because of their total length from 3mins up to 15mins. This makes a huge difference between the videos, which is hart to judge.

    But all together, it was a really nice first Video-contest. I hope there will be more :)

    Best regards
    Michael

    Hi all, I just wanted to express my sincere thanks to everyone that entered the challenge. I was amazed at the amount and more importantly the quality of videos produced. Regarding the comments about the description of the contest, as Michael May says we tried to give some guidelines without being too specific. Regarding the choice of winners, the three judges made their top 8 selections independently before the scores were combined to give a top 6. Kaspar's link shows some fairly different opinions. Personally, I found the judging process rewarding and difficult at the same time and definitely wanted to select more than 8 winners! Once again, sincere thanks to all those that took the time to enter the challenge, I hope you continue to enjoy using your 3D mouse and I would be very happy to hear any more feedback from you in this thread or via a direct message.
