Perfect for the living room, the classroom and the boardroom, Gyration‘s new wireless Air Mouse allows you to control your presentation, gaming device and home theater equipment with just a flick of your wrist.
The Air Mouse works like a traditional wireless desk mouse, but with the push of a button becomes a fully functional – and customizable – remote control.
How the Air Mouse works
The Air Mouse‘s gyroscope and accelerometer-based technology allows your natural hand movements to drive the show. It is the longest-ranging mouse in the world today, capable of controlling devices up to 100 feet away without line-of-sight limitations.
Projector People does not condone using the Air Mouse to mess with your neighbors. However, we do suggest the following uses:
Turn the mouse cursor into a highlighter, laser pointer or pen, or gently swipe it in-air to activate embedded media and other special effects in your presentation
In the classroom, connect multiple Air Mouse (mice?) to one computer, distribute them to the class to allow students better interaction with you, each other, and the subject matter
Search, browse and navigate the web, or play your digital media content on your projector. The Air Mouse lets you control and enjoy your PC connected digital entertainment with simple hand gestures from the comfort of your couch

Hitachi recently came by the Projector Headquarters to show off their new WT-1 wireless tablet. This lightweight interactive tablet is a perfect solution for business and education.
Intuitive and easy to use, the Hitachi WT-1 allows you to interact with your audience as you present and edit Word Docs and PowerPoint Presentations. No more presentations spent chained to the computer or laptop!
The Hitachi WT-1 was designed to allow a more natural way of communicating your thoughts. With the WT-1, you can quickly and easily write notes, mark up digital documents and videos, make quick sketches, and sign your name.
Compact and portable, the WT-1‘s design allows you to present up to 30 feet away from the computer. The easily accessible function keys on the top of the tablet provide quick access to software shortcuts that minimize dependence on the keyboard for uninterrupted work sessions.
Now you can mark up Word documents, videos and PowerPoint presentations with digital ink. Then save your notes and recall them later when you regroup with the class or your team. Genius!
Hitachi marketing manager Alan Sylvia came by to show us the WT-1 in action.
Check out the videos below as he shows us how to use the tablet’s included pen to customize the projected image. The second video demonstrates how the tablet allows you to create interactive presentations, and the final clip shows the Hitachi WT-1‘s video editing capabilities.
The good folks at ProjectorCentral.com recently reviewed the Mitsubishi HC4000 home theater projector. They were so impressed, they honored the Mitsubishi HC4000 with the coveted Editor’s Choice award.
ProjectorCentral.com praised the Mitsubishi HC4000’s picture quality and price, as well as its lamp life and contrast. Read the full review here »
The HC4000 is an impressive projector, and in terms of sheer picture quality it punches above its price class. Even fresh out of the box, with no adjustments made, the HC4000 produces a bright, clear, three-dimensional image that practically jumps off the screen. Every detail in every shadow is reproduced cleanly…For a modest $1,299, you get a high quality cinema image that rivals that of much more expensive models. – ProjectorCentral.com
