Conclusions

The Neon makes you wonder why they haven’t thought about something like this before. For the executive on the go, it makes sense to carry a wireless mouse that also doubles as an air presenter, which means one less gadget in the briefcase (and less extra batteries). This is basically the product’s niche, but users who look for a way to remote control a notebook hooked up to a TV might consider it a good investment. As a mouse, the Neon does not go beyond the basic functions and it might bother people with big hands or palm-grippers. As an air presenter, its precision depends a little on the part of the operator – a big sensor, like the Wii’s, could help on this department, but it would mean one more gadget to pack, and thus defeats the Neon’s purpose.

Strong Points:

  • A three-in-one gadget: mouse, air presenter and laser pointer
  • Light and easy to operate
  • Alternative way of recharging it
  • Hand carry bag

Weak Points:

  • Mouse function is too basic
  • Right-handed use only
  • A little small for big hands
