The user interface approach of virtual reality promises to be superior to twodimensional approaches. Therefore there is a need to perform experiments with different input devices. We developed a virtual environment test bed, which integrates different input devices and a modules for rapid modelling tests and evaluation. Our focus of the tests was a comparison between a conventional computer mouse, a space mouse and an electromagnetically tracked device. With the tests, we tried to measure the
