3Dconnexion, manufacturer of the famous 3D mouse line of engineering products, has partnered with GrabCAD to give away cash and hardware worth $5400.

All you have to do is create a video, almost any way you like, showing designers and engineers who don’t use 3D mice, what they are missing out on.

If you don’t have one of these wonderful devices, just partner with someone who does, or borrow one.  It really is simple, just use your imagination and be original.

1st Prize
