Gyration, now part of SMK-Link, launched the new Gyration Air Mouse Mobile in the UK. Intended to the a mouse for all occasions – mobile laptop computing, desktop use, presentation controller, home entertainment remote control, the new Air Mouse features a rugged, compact design and gyroscopic gesture control. It uses 2.4GHz RF wireless with a 30 meter operation range.
The Air Mouse Mobile is a motion-based mouse that works in the air, like its little brother Air Mouse Elite. Thanks to the gyroscopic gesture control, users can move the mouse cursor with in-air gestures. It can be a handheld remote control for presentations, and an in-air mouse remote for web-streamed home entertainment services such as Netflix, FilmFlex and YouTube. The mouse comes with MotionTools software to activate media shortcuts and visual effects for PowerPoint, Keynote, Netflix and browsers. It also comes with a USB receiver that doubles as a dock.
The Gyration Air Mouse Mobile works on Windows PC and Mac OS X. It is priced at GBP59.99.
