Air Mouse works anywhere
Movea on Wednesday announced the addition of the Air Mouse to its Gyration line of products. Thanks to its motion sensors, the Air Mouse will work in users' hands in free air, or in tight spaces thanks to dedicated media controls and presentation effects. The controls are also comatible with iTunes and Slingbox, allowing music tracks and TV channels to be changed at will.
Movea ensured the the Air Mouse weighs less than four ounces and can be used by both right- and left-handed users. The wireless mouse uses 2.4GHz radio frequency technology to endow it with a 100-foot range that will pass on commands even through walls. For more traditional desktop uses, the mouse features a tracking laser. The USB RF receiver can be stored in the mouse itself, and a travel bag is included.
The Air Mouse will be available in October, priced at nearly $100.
