Logitech is introducing an innovative wireless mouse that works either on your desk - or - in the air.

The Logitech MX Rechargeable Cordless Air Mouse lets you control functions with in-air hand gestures up to a range of 30 feet, similar to how the Wiimote works.

To change the volume, you press and hold the volume button and simply gesture – to the right to increase volume, or to the left to decrease it.

For music, a small circular motion to the right activates the skip track command, while a circle to the left repeats the song.

The tech behind the mouse is "Freespace" based on a combo of microelectromechanical systems, sensors, DSP technology and RF wireless tech.

Instead of a scroll wheel, the Air Mouse has a touch sensitive scroll panel with media functions including play/pause, volume/mute, back and select - but no-one's going to use those - they'll be too keen to get gesturing.

The MX Air Mouse will be available in August for £100.
