Satechi Bluetooth Super Smart Pointer and Remote

The lightweight, portable Satechi Bluetooth Smart Pointer is the perfect solution for controlling your media on Bluetooth-enabled computers and iOS devices. Use the remote to enhance your presentations across a variety of programs, or navigate iOS with the Smart Pointer's Accessibility Mode.

It is almost a universal device that works with iPhone, iPad, iPad Mini, iPod Touch, Samsung Glaxy S3, Note 2, iMac, MaBook Air, MacBook Pro, MacBook, and Mac Mini.

The Bluetooth Smart Pointer supports Bluetooth 3.0 HID, Class II profile. It is compatible with all iOS devices and any computer with Bluetooth capabilities.

The Bluetooth Smart Pointer works with a variety of presentation programs including Keynote and Powerpoint. Use the Presentation Mode and the built-in laser pointer to enhance your presentations: you can advance slides and jump to specific slides within your presentation.

Use the Smart Pointer's Multimedia Mode to control media playback – increase and decrease volume, start and stop movies and songs, and fastforward, rewind, and skip tracks of any media playing from your Bluetooth-enabled computer or iOS device.

Accessibility Mode allows you to browse and open apps, and navigate through Keynote slides and iBooks pages on your  iOS device.  Enable VoiceOver in iOS Accessibility settings to take advantage of this functionality.

In Multimedia Mode, the volume up button on the Smart Pointer will trigger the Camera app to capture a photo just like a camera remote shutter. This means you can place the iPhone on a tripod or stand, and snap a blur-free shot. The remote is also perfect for group shots so you can include everyone in the picture!

The Bluetooth Smart Pointer features a built-in laser pointer, useful for directing attention and increasing the effectiveness of your presentations.

Thanks to the Home button on the Bluetooth Smart Pointer, you do not need to reach for your iPhone while you are driving or jogging. Just press and hold the Home button on the remote to activate Siri!

With a long-lasting lithium-ion battery, the Bluetooth Smart Pointer is ready for presentations whenever you are. The device is USB-chargeable; no need to buy expensive batteries!

The suggested retail price is $59.99, but you can get one here for just $44.95: http://bit.ly/12FS20f

This is a handy little gadget that I will always have in my bag of tricks, and I think you would appreciate having one too, especially if you give presentations.
