Does the key combination WASD sound familiar to you? Did you ever look over the shoulder of your half-grown son, when he played his latest ego-shooter? Would you expect him to intuitively explore 3D data in Matlab much faster than you could ever do - with your good old 'zoom', 'pan', and 'rotate' buttons?

The next-generation engineer will use the 3D control scheme he has grown up with:

Mouse : Look up/down/left/right

'w' : Move forward
's' : Move backward
'a' : Move left
'd' : Move right
'Space' : Move up
'Ctrl' : Move down
'Shift' : Accelerate movement
'm' : Toggle up/down
'q' : Toggle mouse motion capture
'Esc' : Close figure

z = peaks;
surf (z)
axis off
