The SpaceExplorer is specially sculpted to allow for the best possible ergonomics when used.
This rubber pad found on the lower end of the device is in place to provide maximum comfort and keep the hand steady.
Five big buttons exist on the right side of the SpaceExplorer which you can customize and assign whatever functions you want to all of them.
Two more buttons can be seen on the top right corner of the unit.
The 3DConnexion logo is located on the front of the SpaceExplorer.
Two more buttons exist on the top left side adding up to a total of 9 buttons so far.
We see 4 more buttons on the left side of the unit adding up to a total of 13 buttons so far. These buttons are ment to basically replicate your Alt/Shift/Ctrl/Esc keyboard buttons but you can change that at will.
But it is still not over and so the last 2 buttons can be seen right next to the 3D control cap and so the total of available buttons comes up to 15. Yes that is correct, 13 buttons more than the SpaceNavigator. These to buttons at default setting are used to bring up a number of panels in each application.
A protective plastic sticker is on the front of the device and you must remove it prior to using the device.
Turning the SpaceExplorer upside down reveals six large rubber pads that keep it from sliding around when you use it. That aside we also see the 3DConnexion logo, the name of the device and the homepage URL.
