Gyration M2000

Mouse designer Gyration used its time at the DigitalLife show in New York to preview the M2000 Travel Air-Mouse, a controller for notebook users who expect to host presentations as often as they work at a desk. On a flat surface, the controller operates as a capable desktop mouse with a more precise laser sensor, multiple programmable buttons, and an ambidextrous shape. But lifting the mouse up turns it into a presentation device, the company says: aside from steering the cursor, the M2000 recognizes hand gestures and will perform certain common functions to match. They can either control strictly practical commands such as advancing slides in a presentation or handle entertainment-related chores, like skipping tracks or changing volume.

RF wireless lets the mouse operate as far as 100 feet away from the plug-in USB receiver, which stows away inside the mouse itself when on the road. Gyration does not list full operating system support but says the Travel-Air mouse will be ready by early 2008 at a price of $70 for the mouse itself, or $100 when bundled with an unannounced wireless keyboard.
