There are growing demands for some devices which can input three-dimensional information in real-time, with development and spread of three-dimensional model handling technologies for CAD software and some kind of modeling software. We propose a novel three-dimensional information input device using a laser pointer and monocular camera. This input device is based on recognitions of two end points of laser beam emitted from the laser pointer. In addition to its intuitive operation, it has some advantages of using the off-the-shelf camera and laser pointer.
