It's not big like a full size keyboard, it's not too small like the Logitech diNovo Mini, but it's possibly just the right size for me.&nbsp; The wireless distance of 160 feet is nice too and&nbsp;while I&nbsp;like the idea of the moving the keyboard around to move the mouse, much like you do with a wii remote,&nbsp;I'm not sure how&nbsp;it&nbsp;good it will actually be.&nbsp; There is a video of the device on Gizmodo showing it in&nbsp;action and perhaps it's me, but it doesn't look as easy to use as it sounds like it should be.&nbsp; Does anyone have one that can give some feedback?</p>

It looks like the pointer controls are pretty much like Air Mouse. http://www.gyration.com/index.php/us/home.html These worked pretty well for me.
