PC gets Wii-like mouse

Cliff Saran

Movea, the company which owns the technology behind the Wii motion controller, has launched Air Mouse, a £69.99 wireless mouse that uses motion sensors to control the mouse pointer.

The mouse does not require any additional software to run on Linux, Windows or MacOS, but Movea has developed an application which enables users to use it as a laser pointer, enlage text and control media player software using hand gestures and the control buttons on the mouse.

Movea is a spin-off from CEA-Leti, the French Atomic energy lab based in Grenoble, which originally developed motion sensing technology. The company specialises in motion-based applications.
