X-Pointer Presenter with Laser Pointer for IOS

Mobile presenters listen up. Here's the gadget of your dreams. You will never want to leave home without one again.

It's a laser pointer that you plug into the 3.5 mm port of your iPhone, iPod Touch, or iPad. It's only 1.6" long, so it won't exactly bog you down. Once it's plugged in, it turns into a clear and bright red Class II  laser pointer.

The pointer is activated from a free app called X-Presenter. Just point your laser and push the button on your screen, and you are highlighting your presentation.

I love this too. It comes with a carrying case with a short lanyard attached to a fake 3.5 mm plug that connects to your jack for stowage. But what's really cool is that the tip of the stowage unit is a rubber tipped stylus pen. How cool is that?

But we're not done with the functionality of nifty gadget yet. You can download another app for your PC or MAC that hosts the pointer. Now you can use your handheld device to change slides in your presentation and as a mouse for further navigation on the projection screen.

What do you think? Wouldn't you agree that this is a must have gadget if you do any presenting or teaching? Heck, it's just fun to have.

The only issue I have with Satechi is that it's only for IOS. But I hope it will be available soon for Android as well.

It retails for $39.95, but you can get it here for $29.95: http://bit.ly/WiKWZE
