So now I got the NuLOOQ that I ordered from the US. It seems very neat and a quality product, but I don't think it is as useful as I hoped for, especially for Illustrator use. Might actually be more useful in other applications, like for web browsing.
I'll put it to the test now, anyways!

Ben, note that this is not a mouse - it is a navigational device you use in your other hand. The software/driver is very flexible and lets you remap all the buttons and functionality on the device - but for Illy, I think I prefer to have the hand on the keyboard...
Just going off on a tangent here... what about one of those 15-20 key game controllers for your left hand? I read a review of one some time ago, can't remember whether I got the link here or on Slashdot, but it seemed to be ultra-configurable.

I am very interested in your review of the NuLOOQ as it pretains to AI and cartography. I am about to buy one myself - but am on the fence. I was thinking it would work (in addition to the mouse) for my right hand and sit adjacent to it - freeing up my left for keyboard work. I thought it would be an easier way to access menus, submenus and other context sensitive commands.

Hans, I was thinking the same thing - I posted about that in the other thread - the one that started with the 3d navigation device.
