Use the mouse to drag the ColorCube around.
The X, Y and Z keys change the axis of translation. The R key switches the translation to relative mode, the A key switches it back to absolute mode. Use page down and page up plus the arrow keys to navigate. Trying to navigate while holding down the mouse button will lead to strange effects.
See SimpleDragApplet.java and TransAdapterTester.java for some code; more to come soon.
