On Monday, Hillcrest Labs introduced a production version of its radically rethought PC mouse.
The company is pushing its Loop mouse (which it prefers to call a pointer) as the perfect device to use when you’re watching video Web sites to which you’ve gained access on your computer and transferred to your TV. Instead of pushing your finger around a track pad, you simply wave the Loop pointer to move the cursor on screen (movements are picked up by a USB device connected to the PC). And because the pointer uses radio rather than infrared waves, you don’t need to aim it at the PC; in fact, the computer can even be put inside a cabinet.
