Air Mouse

An interesting development but will it catch on?

Re: Air Mouse

As cool as that looks (and I am a real gadget freak) I think I'd find that a bit frustrating having to take it off and put it back on whenever I wanted to use it. A normal mouse is just grab and go.
Without a doubt it's clever tech though and I always admire those who dedicate themselves to new inventions etc.
I need a new signature... i'm bored of the old one!

Re: Air Mouse

I can't see there will be a large market for it - except for the gadget freaks as you say.

And add sound to it and you've got yourself a Theramin. Cheesy
From the picture I like the look of the OP 'mouse'. Wonder if it helps with RSI.

I think you'd have to be careful where you wave your hands Wink

As ultra cool as that is (and undoubtedly a great party trick) I think I'd find it impractical to keep reaching over for it. A normal mouse you can keep next to the keyboard and reach it quickly with minimal fuss.
Now invent me a mind controlled mouse and you might get some money out of me lol as that would scrap the need to reach for the mouse!

Seen that on BBC Click, I'll stick with the old type of mouse.
