SpaceMouse & Bluetooth

Post by Vrmithrax » Mon Jan 27, 2020 8:56 am

Any idea if there will ever be a Bluetooth version of the wireless SpaceMouse? I would absolutely love to be able to do away with having to deal with that wireless dongle on my laptop - I'm afraid to leave it plugged in and damage it when moving the laptop, packing in/out of my bag, etc. And having to unplug and replug the thing every time I am transitioning to a new location is equally nerve-wracking. I've had my share of wireless mouse dongles break, inadvertently get lost, or even damage a USB connector over a lot of disconnect/reconnect cycles. Every peripheral I use (other than my wireless SpaceMouse) is chosen through the criteria of BT connectivity first, then functionality. Having my current laptop with only 2 available USB ports probably doesn't help my urge to get rid of any USB dongles either :)

So, anybody know if there is any hope for future versions with more connectivity options? I saw a few posts lamenting the lack of Bluetooth, but nothing besides that.

I REALLY wish they would use bluetooth. I have to do most my design from a Macbook 12 that has 1 USB-C port. I have stopped using both my space(mice) because of this.

I will buy the first product that uses BT whichever company makes one.

Using a space mouse on the go is becoming near impossible. USB ports are almost fully phased out. Please look into bluetooth support

I did request it about 9 years ago
The next day someone requested wireless without specifying BlueTooth.
This post a few years after

It would open up 3DMice to smartphones and tablets.

I've borrowed a friend's SpaceMouse before and _loved_ it. I was just about to purchase one for myself to go along with my new USB-C-only laptop, but I'm not so sure now knowing that I can't use it without an external receiver _and_ a USB-C adapter. So disappointing.

Just future product feature suggestion, may not be considered, it requires extra electronic chips that support Bluetooth, which will increase extra production cost.
