Loop Pointer Now Available for Mac and Apple TV Users
Monday, June 15, 2009
Posted by: Fran

Hillcrest Labs today announced the release of their Loop Pointer directly to consumers. The Loop Pointer is a unique Freespace in-air mouse that lets users control their on-screen cursor with a flick of the wrist. The device also features an ergonomic round design with four buttons and a scroll wheel. To use the Loop Pointer, consumers simply plug a small, USB 2.0 transceiver that comes with the device into a compatible computer or device. As with a conventional mouse, no special driver software is required for use on a Mac or PC.

The device also works with the Apple TV using aTV Flash version 3.6 from Fire Core. In fact, this version of the software was just released today.

The Loop Pointer from HillCrest Labs is available now from Amazon.com for $99.00.

I would think about giving one a shot if the price point was lower and it used Bluetooth. That being said, it does cost less than the MX Air from Logitech.

It looks cool, but I'm afraid that I would get overly attached to the thing and start calling it my precious. Wink
