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.

Review: Gyration Air Mouse

 

Although it's cramped for on-table use, Gyration's Air Mouse is surprisingly comfortable when used in mid-air.

The Air Mouse is wonderfully designed to fit in either hand. When using the Air Mouse, my hand didn’t so much rest on the mouse as engulf it. My hands fit in men’s medium-sized gloves, and the mouse felt small and uncomfortable when I was using it on a...

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)

Gyration Air Mouse Mobile review

 

The Air Mouse Mobile can be used as an ordinary desktop mouse, but when it takes to the air, you get to see its true worth.

Superb motion sensing ; Feels comfortable in the hand

Takes practice ; MotionTools has rough edges

Gyration Air Mouse review

 

With the Air Mouse, Gyration has a portable optical mouse with a wireless connection - but much more than that, it is a full motion-sensing mouse, able to operate seemingly in thin air.

The Gyration Air Mouse is a well-made mouse that, excusing its less than perfect laser tracking, is a real boon for use at home to operate media centre systems from the comfort of the sofa, or thanks to its 30m range, for impressive business...

Hands On: Gyration Air Mouse with Motion Sensor

 

Upon receiving the Gyration Air Mouse with Motion Sensor, I am taken back a few years when my cousin had one of the early models, which also came with a keyboard. The product itself was very good, but I cannot say the same for the design. Technology...

Motion-sensing mouse provides control with a wave of the hand

Product Specifications

With Gyration's intelligent Air Mouse featuring MotionSense, the world just got a little bit easier to navigate. No strings, no wires, no tricks, no gimmicks - just better technology allowing a more comfortable, portable mouse to operate in the air or on the desk. Take control of your applications with a flick of the wrist. You'll wonder how you ever did it any other way. The Air Mouse features a sleek, stylish design that is comfortable to use yet compact and portable enough to be used at home, at the office, or on the road. The RF USB receiver fits neatly in the Air Mouse and both can be stowed in the included protective carry case. Trigger activated MotionSense technology translates your hand movements into on screen cursor motion for in-air operation. On the desk, the Air Mouse uses the laser sensor technology giving you precise, smooth and flawless cursor tracking.
