The mouse (the palm-sized object) is rolled over the surface of the tablet (eg along the lines on a drawing on the tablet) & the movement of a ball in the base of the mouse is measured & fed to the computer. The machine is running software written by Rochdale Ltd. of Stourbridge, UK, a company using CAD/CAM (computer-aided design/computer aided manufacture) systems to customise programs used by architects.
