Gyration Air Mouse

 

Using a gyroscopic mouse is a lot like driving a stick shift. It's like second nature to those who do, while everyone else is either scared away or has a steep learning curve ahead of them. That said, we've been using gyroscopic mice regularly for more...

Travel-size gyroscopic mouse; works as a regular optical mouse as well.

Not as comfortable to use as previous Gyration mice; feels cheap and insubstantial; occasionally spotty response.

Gyration's new travel version of its excellent gyroscopic mouse falls a bit short, but anyone with wrist or arm pain should seriously consider something from the company's line.

The versatile Gyration Go 2.4 Cordless Air Optical mouse will fit at a desk, in a conference room, or with a Media Center PC in the living room. This comfortable mouse can be lifted off the desk and used in the air. Its intuitive software and seemingly...

Comfortable to use on top of a desk or in the air; easy-to-use software; more than 20 programmable commands

Precision control in the air is difficult; extra buttons are easy to hit accidentally

The comfortable Gyration Go 2.4 Cordless Air Optical mouse performs flawlessly on a desk or in the air and is ideal for use in a conference room or with a Media Center PC.

Gyration Air Mouse Elite

 

Ditch your desk! Gyration's third MotionSense Air Mouse lives up to its name by being the best model yet.

Quite simply, the Elite is Gyration's best Air Mouse yet. If you can live with its few drawbacks and don't require the mobility afforded by the portable Air Mouse, it's the most comfortable mouse around that'll work both on and off your desk. You do...

Gyration - Air Mouse Elite

 

For those who haven't encountered Gyration's products before, they use its MotionSense technology, which in this incarnation consists of a miniature 2-axis gyroscope. This detects mouse motion in the horizontal and vertical planes and so allows ...

It's certainly not cheap, but the Air Mouse Elite is an excellent presentation accessory. It takes a little training to get the best out of it, but once you're familiar with its quirks it comes into its own as an accurate and customisable wireless...

PC ACCESSORIES MAKER Gyration's first "flying mouse" was well received when it was launched a couple of years back. It packed a version of the motion-sensing technology used in Nintendo's Wii gaming platform, allowing you to control presentations and...

Light, Versatile & Easy to use. More than just a mouse!

 

Given the choices of this mouse and any other I would choose The Gyration Go 2.4 Cordless Air Optical mouse almost every time. Other air mice have great features, but this one is so comfortable I choose to overlook the the things I listed as cons most...

Super fast setup, easy to get used to, super comfortable on the desktop, but even more comfortable in the air, very precise mouse movement and response to air motions, buttons are out of reach when using in the air avoiding unintentional mouse clicks, pro

Charger adapter is a little big, comes with four parts: Go Mouse, charging cradle, transceiver and power adapter. Don't leave one of those parts behind after your presentation. The ability to charge with a standard USB cable would be extremely nice (easy

Consumer review by:

Nice portable air-mouse, with standard AAA batteries

 

Overall, this is a good wireless mouse that can use standard or rechargeable AAA batteries. This is a very nice feature for travelling, since you can carry spare batteries and don't have to haul around a charging base. The ergonomics are acceptable,...

The AAA batteries (you can use NiMH) make it independant of a charging base. The scroll button and special feature buttons are nice

The ergonomics are imperfect. Even if you have small hands the trigger button makes for an akwardly small grip. Pushing the trigger requires slightly more force than should be necessary (on release it's hard not to have the cursor jump)
