Title: Where to buy the cool gyro mouse in the demo video?
Post by: thynk on March 14, 2007, 02:38:20 am
I might have missed the model number somewhere... but that is a MUST have for giving this a try :-)

TIA,

Stu

For about $10 cheaper, you could get a Wiimote ($40) and a wireless sensor bar ($20) and have the ability to point at the screen to move your mouse, not just achieve movement via orientation of the mouse/Wiimote.  The gyro mouse seemed nice, but I'd much rather be able to just point somewhere on my screen than keep tilting the mouse to move around.

I'm right with EnderTheThird.  Using the Wiimote would be theoretically much faster and more accurate for things like the on-screen keyboard.  I've been toying around with the idea ever since I saw The Video.

On a side note, my dilema now comes down to the following.  I can't install LinuxMCE on my MythTV HTPC because one, it does not integrate fully with MythTV (i.e., the plugins don't work and I want MythGame); two, it takes over the Ubuntu installation, doing all sorts of things it shouldn't do and breaking stuff like previously running apache websites, firewall scripts and network configuration, etc (i.e., you are meant to install it on a clean Ubuntu, and on its own).  On the other hand, you have to use a remote with 30+ buttons on MythTV because the UI doesn't support using only a mouse, so Wiimote + MythTV is a no-go.

Meanwhile, I found this:

Mouse functionality + buttons for MythTV (although not nearly enough buttons).  It's not the Wiimote, but at least I'd be able to use a mouse on MythTV for web-browsing, onscreen keyboards and the occasional mouse-click on stray dialog boxes, while waiting for LinuxMCE to mature so I can move it from a virtual machine on the study to the living room TV.

Hi,

In the demo video was the ability to program remote control commands for other devices, like vcrs, amplifiers etc. a feature of the gyration mouse or another device, if so can someone tell me what does it?

Thanks
Baz

I think this is the device used  http://www.globalcache.com/products/gc-index.html - it's somewhere in the docs to set it up.

And I have started a Where to Buy (http://wiki.linuxmce.com/index.php/Where_to_Buy) page in the wiki, by the way.

This is the exact model shown in the video.  This link offers it for sale for $150.  I haven't been able to find it anywhere else so far.  If someone knows how to get one cheaper, please let me know because I want one bad.  Here is the link:

Thanks in advance to anyone who can lead me to this model for a better price.  I will be ordering one as soon as I get all the components for a build and I'm getting close.  Great stuff.  Later... cosbear
