Gyration wireless $35 from Woot today

Gyration GyroTransport MouseIf you've taken the plunge and plugged your computer into your television, you've probably noticed something: Most web sites and applications are really not designed for a remote control. Whether you're using an Apple remote or one designed for Windows Media Center, anytime you venture outside of the software designed to work with that remote control, you're kind of lost.

Gyration makes a line of wireless remote controls and mice that attempt to solve this problem by letting you move a cursor across the screen by waving your hand. Yeah, I know, it sounds like a Wiimote, but Gyration's been in this business longer than Nintendo.

The Gyration GyroTransport mouse is actually one of the company's older models. It's since been replaced with an improved version with a few extra features. But the retailers that carry the GyroTransport mouse still sell it for $80 or more. So when I saw that Woot had it for $35 today, I thought I'd pass along the news. If you're not familiar with Woot, the company sells just one item per day, at a deep discount. When it sells out, it's gone. So if you're in the market for a motion-sensing wireless mouse, you might want to pick yours up quickly.

Back in my HTPC and projector days, I have a Gyration mouse+keyboard bundle. The mouse was fine, th compact RF keyboard was great.
