remote for laptop

We have a couple of laptops used for presentations. Mostly powerpoint
type stuff. We don't want the presenter to be tied down to a corded
mouse while making a presentation. Anyone have experience with any
type of cordless mouse/remote device? It would be nice if they could
work the powerpoint presentation without having to place the device on
a hard surface.

Thanks,
Ken

There are a few that work in the air... .But In my old age my remember

I use a Kensington 33373 wireless presenter which I got at Best Buy for
about 40 bones. True plug-n-play. Works great.

We have one of these:

I think we also have a similar device we purchased from HP. I can't
remember what it is, though. They all work--as long as the person giving
the presentation remembers to take the device.

Re: remote for laptop

I have a few little remotes that I got at The Source (used to be Radio
Shack here) from NEXXtech. Laser pointer and powerpoint remote that
fits in the PCMCIA slot when not in use. The last HP laptops that I
bought came with a similar thing included.

Do you have to fling your arm around to make the slides transition?

Re: remote for laptop

That all depends on how you edit the gestures. I am sure for people who do
that already while they talk (you know those kind of people) that would be
problematic 🙂
