    Abstract: A method for a virtual reality simulation for training using a computer system includes the steps of executing the virtual reality simulation on the computer system, manipulating an input device in a 3-dimensional space and recording acceleration and orientation of the input device along three axes during the manipulation. Position of the input device relative to a display of the virtual reality simulation along an axis extending from the input device to the display is recorded. The recording is transmitted to the computer system. The recording is used to interact with a virtual object on a background scene in the virtual reality simulation and includes comparing the recording to a signature associated with the virtual object and acting on results of the comparing. The method further includes using the recording to navigate on the background scene.
