The Gyration AirMouse utilises 'in-air' motion sensing technology. The easiest way to explain is we all know how the Wii works? The Wii uses Gyration motion sensing technology. A tiny gyroscope is housed within the mouse body. The mouse is incredibly accurate on the desk or in the air. No line of site is needed as its radio frequency. So, if you fancy something a little out of the ordinary then this is the best price ive seen it for. The RRP is £69.99 so a real bargain at the moment!

Why would you use a mouse in the air...am I missing some trick here?
#2
For the person with more money than sense!
#3
If you're looking for a cheap air mouse then I got the cheaper version for about £25 from cpc I think.
#4
If you are giving a presentation and standing up you can use the mouse without the need of a flat surface. I got one where I used to work for the conference room. The only reason I got it though, was for it's wireless range. It was used most of the time, well all the time really, on a table :)

People may want to consider a cordless trackball mouse for this. Cheaper and you don't have to wave your hand around. Easier to use from my experience.

i have a logitech airmouse - and i love it to bits. works on my ps3, would work equally well for a media server pc. great for using when you aren't at a desk, and so don't have a surface to use a regular mouse. as someone else said, for presentations it is a wonderful tool, and far far easier to use than a wireless thumb trackball. i don't know about this one, but mine also allows you to use gesture controls for all sorts of applications - like media player, acrobat, or even firefox - allowing you do do so much more than you can with a cheaper presenter tool.

I've not used the gestures but they look useful if you can remember the ones you want.

You dont have to wave your arm about like you do with the Wii it is simple, and slight, wrist movements only. As a presentation tool it is second to none, there is nothing on the market comes close to how good this tool is (in my opinion) ;-)

usb sender for this 30 quid alone (I know Ive just had to replace one) worth it if you need a replacement

This too comes with over 80 applications/special effects to enhance a presentation.

Agreed I used mine a lot unti my little boy dropped it and now it whistles when I put the battery in :oops:

The Gyration is upto 30 metres. Im guessing you'll need a projector if you're this far away though!!

30 metres!!

You'd struggle to see a projected image at that distance either!

You clearly haven't used a Gyration unit yet.

Try expanding your train of thought....you use your TV remote in the air?
#17
HUKD again showing why it's not the place to post any kind of out of the ordinary tech.

Very useful things these, especially for HTPC and sofa-surfing. However, the Logitech model and Gyration's own Media Center remote control are superior. £40 is a good price, but not good enough to tempt me. Anyway, in the competition for HTPC control, nothing beats the obviously much more expensive Ipod Touch and Intellimote app.

And the people suggesting laser pointer mice; it's not the same thing. Completely different things.

great when they work, but amazingly brittle

i will shortly be on my 3rd

I've got (and used) both thanks!

I said wave your hand, not arm! Which is what I would call wrist movements. Not sure why you seem to think I said you had to wave your arm around as that's not what I said.
#22
got one of these, used it for at least three years - handy bit of kit, along with the matching mini- keyboard.
I went down this route as the PC that's connected to my plasma is housed in the next room, connected to my (music) keyboard, but also drives the plasma.
an infra red remote would be of no use at all, this combo is wireless via radio so the walls aren't an issue. Easy to use too.
good find OP.
#23
heat just for the personal description and not just copy/paste.
#24
just a heads up... You can get them cheaper (About £30 delivered) on ebay.
#25
very very cold. i can steal these from uni for free why should i pay for them?

/s

they are quite good to use, although i've never used them for a presentation controlling the mouse in air is quite accurate, even if it is a little difficult to keep steady
#26
They are brilliant for the range alone. Make you presentations interactive- make sure folk are paying attention by getting them to select the next option, answer a question or complete a task.

Very useful for teaching, learning and assessing.
#27
So I could get it to open my favorite adult website with a preprogrammed gesture? I like that idea.

Who cares.

Great response.

I had the early model, needs charging all the time. Increadably useful for HTPC use, but an MCE remote does just as good a job and lasts weeks.

There was no early model! Its the first Airmouse and it doesnt use rechargeable batteries like the Airmouse GO Plus range.

You still dont have to 'wave' anything around. If you think moving your hand about 2-3 inches either way is 'waving' it about then fair enough, I dont think that is classed as 'waving' your hand.

I would think most people would class moving your hand a few inches from side to side is waving.

totally agree. i suppose they will be having keyboards which can attach to your ******** (backside incase of censoring)

I have one sitting unused [flat batteries] in my living room.

When you are sitting on the couch, you don't have a flat surface for a regular mouse nearby.

Could you strap this to your head for a more authentic experience with Crysis or other 1st person shooter? :thinking:

No you dont, you have the Ultra series sat with a flat battery. Like I said, the Airmouse is a first of its genration and does not use rechargeable batteries. The Ultra series, which you show an image of and the GO Plus range use rechargeables.
