What is Gestor?

We are a Canadian start-up working on designing a new UI for anything that has a screen
What is Gestor ?
First of all - it is an air computer mouse! Why air? Because you can use in without any surface. Just pick it up, touch the first, lower control ring with any of your fingers, it becomes operational, and you can move a cursor on your computer screen by tilting Gestor up or down, back and forth.

Basic operation of the Gestor as a mouse - simply touch the lower control ring with your index finger to activate the device, then tilt the Gestor side to side to move from side to side, tilt Gestor up to move up and down to move down. Rotating Gestor enables you to smoothly scroll up and down, or zoom in and out, depending on the application.

When Gestor goes into such scrolling or rotation mode, the mouse functions are frozen and the cursor is not moving. Ultimately, rotating Gestor can be configured to any action on the computer or specific device it is used with. By default, it is scrolling up and down if you are browsing the Internet or reading a book or a long document. If you are looking at Google maps, rotating Gestor will zoom in and out the map, so it becomes really fun exploring the world.

You don't need to point Gestor to a screen, just visually align a cursor on the screen with a current potion of your hand and use Gestor the way most suited for your current body position.
How it works ?
How is it different from any other wireless air mouse? Well, there is more than just a computer mouse and it looks very cool, don't you think?
There is no much innovation in just making an air mouse. Our key innovation is that we brought an extra dimension to anything that existed so far. When conventional air mouse is tilted, the horizon "is lost" and such tilt is considered "a bad thing" for mouse operation. In Gestor, we make use of tilting! The tilting or rotating our air mouse is a good thing - we use it for scrolling or zooming the screen content. And with our algorithms, we always keep track of the horizon, or vertical if you wish, so when the scrolling motion is over and you start moving Gestor to the left or right, the cursor on the screen will also move to the left or right, correspondingly!
