Wait a minute. Are you people saying your PCs don't have a giant chrome steering wheel on them? How do you input commands to your system, by holding some little lump of plastic with a ball bearing and a plug-in cord?!

That'll be the day. Keep dreaming, FuturePeople.

By an artist named Frank Tinsley. Not really close to the actual LEM, or rover, but still kinda cool!

Gunny, a commercially available version of that IS out on the market. They used a couple of them in a Doublemint Gum commercial recently... How do you steer something like that, I wonder? Body english?

Sure I have a mouse now but my 2004 model PC looked quite a lot like the pictured one.
