Bella HD Mouse offers gestural control for video editors and multimedia mavens

Bella bills this wireless RF pointing device as an HD Mouse, but its neat trick is not in its 1600 dots-per-inch rez or 3000 frames-per-second response. Aimed at video editors, it gives you gestural control, so when you move your wrist forward and back, or left to right (x and y axis), you can intuitively jog-shuttle through video clips.

Working on Macs and PCs, Bella's software lets you create 20 presets for each piece of software you're running, giving you lots of opportunities for customization of its five buttons. With its 20-foot range that can go through walls, we're thinking of its possibilities with a home theater PC, shuttling through clips to find just the right spot, or programming in a volume control.

Might be well worth its $70 price when it ships in a couple of weeks.
