Using magnets coils to levitate the mouse in the air, and 9 degrees of freedom sensors to detect motion
When designing 3D models it can be useful to use a 3D mouse to easily navigate in 3D space. These tend to look like a joystick that allows for pushing in and out for zoning, and twisting left and right rotation.
What I propose is to use two magnetic coils to levitate a cube in space. This is commoditized already and you often see it in levitating potted air plants. Magnetic Levitation: The New Way to Grow and Care for Your Plants
The cube has an embedded accelerator and gyro in it with 9 degrees of freedom. When a user rotates the cube in space the motion is wirelessly transmitted to a virtual 3D mouse that can be used in CAD application. The cube is powered by coil transmitting power wirelessly (Already done)

Basically combining three existing technologies together.
- Project McFly - April fools joke by Razer
- The Bat - It holds a mouse in the air for storage not use.
