If you're fortunate to have an LCD projector in your classroom but tired of being strapped within arms length of your computer during presentations (so you can be close enough to tap the space bar to advance the slides) then you need this device! The Keyspan Presentation Remote with Laser Pointer is a great two-in-one device. I have used this now for about two years, and it operates as well now as it did when I first began using it. I especially love the thumb-mouse to navigate to websites from the back of the room. When technology works, it's like magic!
If you threw out your quick start guide, you may have forgotten how to operate this gizmo. Here's a refresher: The remote has two modes which are controlled via the Mode button, which is a white button, located at the bottom. When the Mode button is not showing a green light, the remote is in Standard mode. When the Mode button is lit green, then the remote is in Media mode.
To turn on the Laser Pointer, hold down the Laser Pointer button (blue button) AND the Mode button (white button) simultaneously. The Mode button will blink red when the Laser is activated. To deactivate the laser again, hold down the Laser Pointer button (blue) and Mode button (white) simultaneously again until the Mode button flashes rapidly.
Another great feature is the media controls. Lots of times, I'll be streaming a clip from the Internet. With the Keyspan Presentation Remote with Laser Pointer, you can pause, rewind, and fast-forward from anywhere in the room -- great for adding your own, personal, LIVE commentary.
