Control a PC remotely using this motion-sensing mouse
The Air Mouse Go Plus is the latest in the line of portable wireless mice from Gyration, using motion sensing to manipulate a mouse pointer on screen, rather than moving a mouse on a desktop.
It was originally designed for presentations, but the versatile software, which allows users to allocate specific actions to any of the five controls, eight swiping movements and eight areas of a desktop display, means it is useful for lots of other tasks.
Despite the device being able to respond from 100 feet away from the USB receiver (which plugs into the PC), it’s not much use unless you’re close enough to see the screen.
This does limit the mouse’s use but, in addition to presentations, it has distinct appeal for photo slideshows, media control and other situations where a mouse and keyboard aren’t practical.
The device was responsive, easy to configure and use and, provided its limitations are taken into account, is an effective way to control a PC if you’re not sitting with it at a desk.
Despite a rather limited range of uses, the Gyration Air Mouse Go Plus is an effective way to control a PC remotely
