    Skymouse puts mouse control on your fingertips

    Designed by Los Angeles-based Eliott Ephrati, the Skymouse uses infrared LEDs and an infrared camera to track the movement of "Skymouse Pointers" that are worn on the user's fingers. An algorithm then translates these hand movements into onscreen movements of the cursor.

    Thanks, Bill.

    That's very innovative. What a great idea. A compromise between touch and mouse. Sort of on the order of Kinect.

    This may be a worthwhile investment.

    Those little pads your finger seem like they could be a bother to put on or take off. What about using a special fingernail polish to do the same trick? That might be Skymouse Version 3.0. :-)
