GYRATION LAUNCHES FIRST REAL-TIME WIRELESS POINTING DEVICE

 GYRATION LAUNCHES FIRST REAL-TIME WIRELESS POINTING DEVICE
 SARATOGA, Calif., Feb. 3 /PRNewsire/ -- Gyration Inc. today introduced the first hand-held wireless pointing device for presenters that can remotely control a floating cursor on a computer monitor while the pointer is manipulated in free space. GyroPoint Remote does not require traditional feedback sensor equipment and has absolute real time response to the presenter's commands. The wireless product allows users -- whether they are on-the-road sales personnel or headquarters-based executives -- to deliver presentations with complete freedom of movement, unrestricted by an attached cord. In addition, GyroPoint Remote performs exactly like a traditional computer mouse, so it's not necessary to purchase a second input device to create or change a presentation and there's no learning curve for use.
 "The magic of presentations is in their visual images, but the eloquence is in the delivery," said Thomas J. Quinn, president and CEO of Gyration. "Today, input technology is limited -- presenters can only manipulate their presentations from defined locations. With GyroPoint Remote, the presenter becomes a seamless, integral part of the presentation without distractions or equipment limitations."
 GyroPoint Remote uses radio frequencies (RF) which allow presenters to interact and move about audiences of any size while still having complete control of the computer. Typical users include instructors, trainers, sales personnel and educators.
 GyroPoint Remote uses a new generation gyroscope technology developed by Gyration that can sense motion internally rather than through the contact of a rolling ball (mouse products) or external sensor (ultrasonic or magnetic feedback systems).
 Gyration will demonstrate both products at Infocomm International in Washington Feb. 6 through Feb. 8, in booth 2020.
 GyroPoint Remote is compatible with all Microsoft Windows and Apple Macintosh software programs. Other platforms require additional software drivers.
 GyroPoint Remote will be sold by original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and independent resellers at a suggested retail price of $995. Shipping will begin in June 1992.
 The original GyroPoint (with attached cord) can be purchased through the same channels at $695 (SRP). Shipping began in January 1992.
 Gyration Inc. created the first mass-produced consumer gyroscope in the world. The company's mission is to provide this technology to a wider range of industries and applications than that which exists today. Founded in June 1989, Gyration is privately held and based in Saratoga.
