Gyration Air Mouse Voice Review

A Closer Look

The Air Mouse Voice looks like most other mice, but certainly, has a few ergonomic and button layout changes to suit the multi-purpose feature set. One of the most noticeable features is the shape, as it deploys ambidextrous ergonomics and a low, wide and fairly flat looking design to make it easier to hold in your hand when in air mode.

There are no side buttons either, with all the main controls moved up top, making them easier to control with your thumb; much like you would a TV remote for example.

The same design down the right-hand side too. The mouse is fairly lightweight, even with the batteries inserted, and uses a lot of glossy plastics, which I must admit look and feel a little cheap, but the build quality seems to be OK overall.

Up top you’ll find three control buttons, all of which are programmable for ease of use using the downloadable software. There’s another button for triggering voice commands, and a clickable scroll wheel which has a rubber grip coating for easy control.

The LMB and RMB are formed from the main top panel and feature mechanical switches for a good tactile feedback. They do feel a little muddy, which makes them quieter than most mice, but not particularly responsive for rapid clicking; that’s not a problem, though, this isn’t a gaming mouse after all.

On the base of the mouse, few small slipmats for use on desktop mats, a master power switch, the laser sensor towards the front, and most importantly here, a trigger button. This trigger button is used to control the air mouse function. Hold the button down while moving the mouse around in your hand (like a Wii Mote), and you can move the mouse pointer without the mouse being on a desktop surface.

There’s also a small battery compartment, where you can insert the two AAA batteries.

As a child still in my 30's (but not for long), I spend my day combining my love of music and movies with a life-long passion for gaming, from arcade classics and retro consoles to the latest high-end PC and console games. So it's no wonder I write about tech and test the latest hardware while I enjoy my hobbies!
