An input device is a communication method between human and telecommunication device. General public input devices include keyboard, mouse, and joystick. These input devices are used to communicate between humans and telecommunication devices. Many kinds of telecommunication device are emerging, including intelligent robots. We must develop adaptable input devices for many telecommunication devices and their applications. We have to consider, not only interface performance, but also fun and user experience, when developing the input devices for users. This paper proposes a position-based input device, embedding a new paradigm using an Infrared sensor array. Our Non-contact Input Device specification supports fun and the user experience when communicating between humans and telecommunication devices, including robots. Our non-contact type input device transmits commands to control mobile robots. It can also control Google Earth's map searching programs, and other applications.
