For directional cursors.

This idea is for my Directional Cursor idea; a computer stylus that has a tiny analog stick like device on the tip, which will provide the computer with rotational cursor input when there is an angular force applied to tip of the device. When you rotate the “stylus”, it will rotate the cursor.

       How odd, I was planning to submit this same idea. I saw some demo about moving files around on a simulated desktop with realistic physics, and thought it would be an interesting way to rotate groups.

       I always direct my cursors at those who deserve them most.

       That's nice.

       maybe not so nice. i guess it depends how pointy your cursors are.

       I like this a lot. What about a tip with 2 distinct tips on it that the computer can track, that way as they change their orientation to one another the system can read the change in orientation. It would also be very durable.

       I don't think I understand exactly what you are suggesting.
