    This is one of the coolest techie gift ideas I've seen in a while. It's a wireless PC remote control with trackball and 18 programmable keys (pic), usable up to a 25 foot range.

    Not sure how useful this would be at home (check your email from across the room maybe? ) but it looks like it would be great for business presentations and whatnot.

    Anyway, it's only $10 and looks like a good product so I figured it was worth sharing with the SitePoint community.

    It seems like your arm would be resting on the remote control-type buttons.

    I think you're supposed to hold it like a TV remote, and roll the ball with your thumb. That's how it looks, at least.

    You have to look out for these contraptions.

    Sometimes that pointy cursor arrow flies right off the screen and pokes you in the eye.
