Logitech’s new pointing device

Logitech's Pointing Device
Logitech, the Swiss leader in ‘pointing technology,’ has launched in India the MX Air Rechargeable Cordless Mouse that does double duty as a normal PC mouse and a TV-style “remote.” Unlike the cordless mouse available, the MX Air does not work off batteries — it comes with a docking station-cum-charger that can be plugged into the A/c mains — and a ‘dongle’ that can be plugged into the USB port of the PC, to create a wireless link for about 10 metres.

The “air” mouse if pointed at the PC, as you would a TV remote, it functions exactly as a mouse placed on a mouse-pad would.It uses new ‘motion control’ technology called “FreeSpace” created by an U.S. company, Hillcrest. It costs just under Rs. 9,000.
