Abstract

The present invention concerns a pointing device or mouse (1), comprising a housing containing detecting means (2, 3, 7) capable to detect at least one linear movement over at least one supporting plane of the mouse (1), selecting means (4, 5, 6) capable to make at least one selection, characterised in that said detecting means (2, 3, 7) is capable to detect one or more rotations about one or more axes orthogonal to said at least one supporting plane of the mouse (1). The present invention further concerns the method for controlling signals coming from such mouse (1).
