Customer Reviews

I'm not the only one with this issue, check questions about the product section.

The ring is large for my small hands, but the rubber material has enough friction that it doesn't slip off my finger.
Jenny B.
The unobtrusive USB antenna and the micro USB charging port are great features as well.

Color Name: Black Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This is a great idea and works pretty well. The ring feature is not completely a ring and has a flexible pivot point so that it should be able to fit most people comfortably. I have found that for me the most comfortable way to use it is to wear it on the second joint of the index finger. Even if waving my hands around it doesn't slip off. If you present a lot, I would definitely recommend this item because of its size and features. I have been able to present without a problem about 15 feet away (I haven't tried it any further than that). As of now, I think this is a great product and a great idea. Having the mouse feature, i find myself also using this at home with my media pc as I don't need to bring around a keyboard just to surf and watch netflix. Having only used this for less than a week, I have not had any problems with it yet.

Things I liked:
+ size, much smaller then any of my other presenters.
+ functions of a mouse as well
+ tiny RF receiver
+ easy install without drivers or issues on Win7

Things I would change/didn't like:
- wished they would use a green laser as those are much more visible on many more different backgrounds
- left/right/top button is not intuitive at all. I wished they also had pictograms so you can figure out what each button does. Without reading the instructions, I couldn't figure out which one was the laser button, left mouse click and what function was the left button, etc. after you read the instructions it isn't all that bad though
- no battery life indicator
- small mode selector switch
- wrist lanyard option would be nice for those that don't want to wear as a ring

Color Name: Black Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
As a teacher and presenter, I have great respect and admiration for laser pointers. My current favorite is the Kensington K72353US Wireless Presenter Pro with Green Laser Pointer which combines a great form factor with a green laser. Remember that green dots are easier to see - hence the use of green in night vision goggles.

The Genius Ring Presenter combines a regular red laser presenter with a more ergonomic mouse action.

When I last tried the mouse action, with a Satechi SP400, I was very underwhelmed. It required too much fine muscle control to use. The ring concept is a new take on the ergonomics involved in remote mousing.

First impressions:
############

1. The ring needs to be charged using a micro USB cable. I far prefer standard batteries as there is less chance that you won't be prepared when you need it the most. Further, there doesn't seem to be an option to replace the battery if things go wrong.

2. The USB transmitter is tiny - smaller than a penny. I expect that I will lose it before the year is out.

3. The manual is printed in 2 point font and is practically unreadable. What were they thinking?

4. The small surface area of the ring has 5 buttons and a touch pad! That makes for very cramped quarters - and leads to a lot of mis-pressed buttons (esp. for my large hands).

5. A micro switch picks a mode - "P" for presenter or "M" for mousing. The mouse touch pad and the laser pointer button, are active in both modes.

7. Presenter mode assigns the buttons to previous, next, left click, and exit presentation.

This thing was easier to get used to that I had expected. However, some flaws can't be ignored.

The plus column:

+ The size seems unbelievably small and light. When you pick it up it feels like one of the empty 'non-functional' store displays.
+ The battery lasts about a week on a 30 minute charge with moderate use
+ Great for general web browsing on a PC based entertainment system
+ The top button opens links and shortcuts in a new tab

The minus column:

- Severe Bluetooth interference. If you have a Bluetooth keyboard, or sync your portable devices via Bluetooth, this will end that practice. I can't use any Bluetooth device within about 5 feet of the device, and I had to move its fob to a hub positioned out of range to prevent it from interfering
- Dragging is difficult. They offer a method which will let you select text and drag items, consisting of a 3 second long click on what you want to move. It then drags the item until you click again. This is fine for moving files, but useless for Google Earth, most mapping sites and more.
- If you have a large thumb, you will mis-click frequently. It is very easy to press all of the buttons at once if you are in a hurry

That said, I'm still looking for the perfect armchair controller.

"There's no business like show business, like no business I know."

Presentations are part-tutorial, part show. The best sort makes you think the speaker just got tapped to speak a few minutes beforehand. Of course this is not true, there are hours and hours of preparation sunk into making that presentation appear effortless.

Once an audience is drawn into a presentation, anything which breaks the mirage detracts from the efficacy of information transfer. Absolutely nothing does this worse in a PowerPoint-based presentation than the speaker walking back to bang on the keyboard, baboon-like, to advance each slide. Not much better is looking down at the fist-large "clicker" in the speaker's hand, `CLICK', `CLICK'.

Enter the Genius Ring Presenter. This tiny wonder is both a presentation clicker as well as a full-fledged mouse AND a laser pointer. With a soft rubber ring, it slips and stays comfortably on a finger while--at least for me--the thumb is used to work the buttons and the touch-wheel, which doubles as a clicker button as well.

How does it work? Very, very well. In "air-mouse" mode, you can perform all the usual mouse controls, dragging windows, left/right/middle buttons and scrolling. There's a small learning curve, of course, but once you know which button is which, it becomes a muscle-memory thing. It helps that the layout and control is logical.

Switching over to the presentation mode with a small, slightly stiff button on the side, you can control your PowerPoint presentation in the usual way: forward, backward, start presentation, etc. The one downfall for me is there's no way to blank out the screen.
