The Oblong Optical Wand is a handheld pointing device used to interact with and manage data and visual digital content in immersive display environments. Because the wand’s position is tracked in three dimensional space, users can employ intuitive gestures and movements to engage directly with the content displayed. The device has an ergonomic shape with balanced weight and comfortable haptic properties. Its minimal four-button touchpad allows the user to control digital content in an easy and seamless way.

Statement by the Jury

With the Oblong Optical Wand, users can control digital content directly and intuitively. This lifts interaction to a new level.
