What is the Gestor? According to the Kickstarter crowdfunding page of the product, it is, first of all, an air computer mouse. What does this mean? It means that you can use this pen-like thing without using it on any surface. All you have to do is pick it up, touch the first, lower control ring with the use of any of your fingers, and it will become operational. To use the pen to move around the cursor, all you have to do is tilt the device up or down, or back and forth. You can even use it with any computer, as well as any device that will support the traditional USB mouse, such as a 2-in-1 convertible laptop. But there’s more to it than just a wireless air mouse, as it can also be used as a presenter, and a smart TV scroller as well.
The Gestor is More Than Your Typical Air Mouse
The Gestor has three “rings,” and each of these are touch sensitive. For the lower ring, which is also called the control ring, it is the equivalent of the on/off button found on many devices. Once touched by any of your fingers, the device will “awaken” and become operational. Once it is not touched, the device will “sleep.:
As mentioned earlier, basic operations for the Gestor is pretty, well, basic, especially when you use it as an air mouse. You just have to touch the lower control ring to activate the device. Then, just tile the device side-to-side to move it from, you guessed it, side-to-side. When you tilt it up, the mouse cursor will also move up. From here, you get the general idea. You can also rotate the device to smoothly scroll up and down a page, or you can even make a page or application zoom in and out. The effect differs depending on the application.
What’s more is that you no longer have to point the pen-like object in front of the computer screen, because it will automatically and virtually align itself with your hand and the screen. Therefore, you can use it in practically any body position that you might be comfortable with.
The other two rings on the Gestor are your typical mouse buttons. By default, the next ring right after the control ring will be the left mouse button, whereas the upper ring is the right mouse button. These can be re-assigned with the use of the device’s driver settings, which is available for both Windows and Mac OS systems.
