Gyration Air Mouse Elite

 

Back in December 2008, I spent several weeks with Gyration's first-generation Air Mouse. From a geek standpoint, the mouse impressed due to the proprietary MotionSense technology and GyroTools (now called Motion-Tools) software that Gyration...

MotionTools is also HTPC-friendly, as it includes support for configuring up to eight in-air mouse gestures. So, for example, you can decrease system volume with a downward swipe or navigate Web pages with left and right swipes. Setup is...

Gyration Air Mouse Elite review

 

Can this motion-based wireless mouse cope with your presentations?

Great motion controls ; Very stylish

Awkward button positioning ; Could be more configurable

Gyration Air Mouse Elite review

 

The Gyration Air Mouse Elite will undoubtedly make delivering presentations easier, and it will work equally well as a tool for navigating media on your PC. Its price means we wouldn't recommend this device to everyone, but, if you can think of a use...

Responsive, motion-sensitive controls ; Easy set-up ; Lightweight and comfortable

Expensive ; Some features are unlikely to be used

Conclusion At around £90, the Gyration Air Mouse Elite is pricey. Although it functions impressively as a standard desktop mouse, its high price means we wouldn't really recommend it unless you can think of a particular use for the motion-control...

Gyration Air Mouse Elite

 

How ever big the area surrounding the keyboard there are always times when it is just not large enough. I often find the 30x20cm area set aside for my mouse to move around in taken by notes, cups or even a plate.

I mentioned a presentation use earlier but using the Advanced use of MotionTools you can change the Gesture controls according to which package you are currently using now that is a clever feature

Gyration Air Mouse Elite

 

Navigates PC menus whether being pushed around a desk or waved around like remote controls.

Despite only basic Mac/Linux support, the charger shortcomings and minor niggles with the gesture recognition capability, I enjoyed using Air Mouse Elite. It has broad appeal for a range of environments as it works well as a traditional desktop mouse,...

Junk

 

If you can get it to charge it does work badly. Mine stopped charging after the 1st six months of use. You also have to be careful it stays stuck on and kill it's battery in a few hours if you use the air mouse function. Make sure to watch the blue...

None

This product is junk and should come with an apology note or one that says "ha ha gotta sucker!". I had a Gyration Air mouse Go Plus for years that worked well. So I assumed this to be the same quality product. I was wrong. This is a cheap piece of...

A worthless piece of junk

 

Do NOT buy this product. It is junk! Spend you $80 on anything but this item.

It worked for two months before dying

I bought this in June and it died in August. The battery died so I put it in the charger. The blue LED came on the mouse and it is completely unresponsive. It will not connect, the amber charge indicators quite. It does absolutely nothing. It is...
