Clickers always give me an image of a wannabe-sophisticated person.  Skipping it. - not because of the product, but because of hte nature of the product.

 I have a lean finger and I used the Finger adapter. The size 'S' was apt for me. I usually use the AirPoint Ring  for my presentations and I haven't felt it heavy. Actually, I don't have to carry a presentation clicker so it was a convenience for me...Regarding the GiveAway, I remember they had announced a giveaway for their AirPoint Ring earlier. Don't know if any giveaways are going on. Maybe following their fb page may help to know such info.

Amazing innovation, but the wearable device seems too big and not very comfortable to wear and use.. hope they will improve it and reduce its size

Dear BE, 

As you have mentioned  'jerky and uneven movements, we are not in a position to predict it precisely without knowing the magnitude of jerky movements.But on the other hand, we have got several positive feedback from our customers of AirPoint Ring who are differently abled and feels difficulty in using normal desktop mouse. Among those, one of our customers has RSI on the wrist issue and gave us very positive feedback about the AirPoint Ring. Along with that, there is an option to adjust the 3d sensitivity from the AirPoint APP so that you can configure it according to your convenience. Please check out our website for a review regarding the same.

How well do you think this will work for someone with a neuromuscular condition that results in jerky and uneven movements sometimes?

Hi Yew,Thank you for your comment and let me clarify your query. AirPoint Mouse as a product is an air mouse inside a base mouse. That means, a combination of a 3d mouse and a 2d mouse. When the air mouse is inside the base mouse, you can use it as a regular desktop mouse. In this case, you have to be near to the desk. Then, when you take the air mouse from its base mouse, you can wear it on your finger like a ring and surf in the air (use as a 3d mouse). The air mouse is also a fully functional mouse and you can left-click, right-click, drag, scroll anything that could be done. Thanks to its 120 feet range, you can be at a distance and still use it. Yes, you are right, you don’t have to be near the desk when AirPoint is used as an air mouse. Let me give you the dimensions of the product.Air Mouse: 36mm x 32 mm x 39 mmDesktop mouse: 115mm x 66mm x 46mm

If I understand this correctly, it is a mouse that able to works with the ring while away from the desk. Will there be other larger size table mouse? The measurement you provided is rather small size, in my opinion suit for short interval usage. Great idea!

Hi Will,Thank you for your inquiry.In response to your question, AirPoint does not require the reactivation of gestures after connecting it to another computer. You can activate or deactivate gestures from the device itself.

Campaign Info

 

 AirPoint Mouse is a 2-in-1 mouse that functions as a desktop and air mouse.  

*The mouse images shown are of the 3D printed prototype.

Lightweight and ergonomic, this wearable ring offers dual mode of operation, rechargeable battery, intelligent gesture control, and more. 

The Bluetooth-connected wearable ring docked inside the mouse can be taken out and worn on the index finger to advance slides in presentations. 

 

 

For those who like the comfort of a traditional desktop mouse or those who want to keep their hands free to use their PC, AirPoint fits well. AirPoint’s compact design makes it an ideal travel companion.

Work from anywhere at your comfort level in your desk space as well as from your couch. The redefined features of AirPoint Mouse makes your home office environment professional.

 

Designed with 3D sensor, AirPoint Mouse gives a virtual reality aspect to normal gaming.

 

Scrolling when viewing SNS is also easy.

Even when you connect your PC to a large TV and enjoy videos on the Internet, you can use AirPoint mouse to operate your PC while sitting on the sofa.

Of course, fast-forwarding audio and skipping songs are also good.

It will be a super pleasure to be able to move various devices with just your fingertips!

The AirPoint Mouse gives the user freedom to work freely by wearing the device on an index finger and waving the wrist to move the mouse cursor.

To use AirPoint Mouse as an air mouse, take out the mouse ring from its base mouse and wave on the air. The lightweight design offers a comfort fit.

With a simple tap or air gesture, all actions, such as left click, right click, drag, drop and scroll, can be done effortlessly.

AirPoint makes your everyday interactions with any smart device extra smart. The air gestures programmed in the AirPoint mouse makes the the three dimensional experience created by AirPoint more intuitive.

 

Scrolling the pages is now possible without staying near to the PC. The advanced gesture for scrolling in the AirPoint will make you forget about dragging using the scroll bar. Browse through any long documents or web pages by only moving your hands up or down using AirPoint. Pass the contents in the screen with ease and no effort at all with Air Scroll. 

Using Air Swipe, move the hands left or right to change the slides next or previous in a presentation or using Air Slide, users need only to wave their hands to the right or left for advancing presentation slides.  

The AirPoint mouse responds to both desk space and 3d space.

Activating Air Mouse mode makes it an efficient 3d mouse while bringing and docking it to the base mouse makes it a surface mouse.

This transition from air to surface mouse modes can be done instantly. 

The Air Mouse has four touchpads that are placed on either side of the device. They can be used to perform left click, right click, activate/deactivate Air mouse mode, and what more... drag, drop, or scroll anything could be done.

The touchpads smooth surface delivers users the perfect feel to their fingertips. All you have to do is tap your finger to get a precise click.

AirPoint Mouse allows users to customize their finger-wearable mouse. The device supports two mouse modes:

· Hand Mode

· Presentation Mode

The user can activate these modes using the supporting 'AirPoint' application. The app features tools such as laser pointer, spotlight and magnifier for presentations.

Not every mouse is compatible for left-handed users. The AirPoint Mouse facilitates users’ left-handed operation with the existing touchpads in the Air mouse—without any additional buttons. This doesn't mean the options are limited in left-hand mode operation.

The device supports full features in both left and right-handed modes of operation.

Delivery is as important as creativity in a professional presentation session. This is where AirPoint’s Air Mouse becomes a utility. Its finger-wearable design gives users no feeling of using a gadget for their presentations.

Users can click on the presentation-mode icon from the AirPoint app and activate this special mode.

The left-click touchpad enables users to move to the next slide. The right-click touchpad takes the user to the previous slide.

With Bluetooth 5.0, users can even stand at a distance of 120 feet and can have full control of the session.

The base mouse weighs less than 100 grams and the air mouse only less than 50 grams.

The Ring and the base mouse are both rechargeable.

Docking the air mouse to its base mouse will recharge it, while plugging in the base mouse using any type-c cable recharges it up as well.

The LED indicators in the AirPoint Mouse show the battery level and the charging status.

We have successfully fulfilled the Makuake campaign in Japan for the Ring early this year:
