The one in the video is the Fiire Chief, but I believe Fiire as a company just went under. :(
The more experienced folks may be able to point you in the direction of a suitable replacement.

Hi, is anyone using MX Air with 810?

Tried the tricks given in the wiki, but evidently btnx does not work with ubuntu 810 anymore.

Couldn't get the key mapping (http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/Use_Additional_Mouse_Buttons) to work either, since xev only shows few buttons..

Thanks for your help!

I use the "Gyration" (Air Go?) mouse, bought it on ebay reconditioned - superb, and is plug 'n' play. This kind of thing...

Be aware of imitations that don't have the extra 3 buttons!

I used an MX Air for a while on 0710 with btnx - I was less than impressed. The mouse looks slick, but the button action was pretty finicky. On the flip side, I *am* very happy with it as an unfortunately expensive cordless mouse for a regular desktop computer.
