Abstract: With the advent of 3D technology in our daily lives, need of the hour is to develop 3D interactive devices. In this paper, review an air mouse that interacts with PC in 3 Dimensions. The device will not only need any contact surface, but also provide the user with three degrees of freedom. Setup of the project consists of a non-echo ultrasonic system with three receivers at different corners of the display screen and one hand held transmitter, which acts as the mouse. Upon measuring the three distances, position of transmitter in three dimensions can be determined. Above calculated distances will be sent to the PC serially. A 3D image is used to demonstrate the functionality in three dimensions, and changes in transmitter coordinates will result in corresponding changes in 3D image.
