Love the Wii-mote? Logitech now offers a mouse with similar technology. The MX Rechargeable Cordless Air. Clearly having a pointing device which you can hold as a remote is a great idea for entertainment PCs. With a range of up to 30 feet makes it a plausible tool for presentations as well. It lacks the sleek and simple design of the wii-mote, but does all it can to be a mobile tool rather than a mouse. The scroll wheel is instead a scroll pad — much like the Creative Zen. The buttons don’t flap over the end of the casing.
No moving parts, and laser accuracy.
On the downside, it uses a dock to recharge rather than the popular Logitech G7 which includes 2 hot-swappable batteries. When one battery dies, you can just pop out the ready battery and place the dead one in to charge at the dock. Without this idea, the MX Air is unusable when it dies until charged again. The laser and their “Freespace” motion sensors have a high potential to be power hogs. At $150, you are paying 3 times more than their other high-end mice. Overall, it seems like a nice product for those who want an easy multimedia remote solution, but possibly a premature design and price.
