The main advantage of 3D Ion over the traditional mouse is no need for a table or other work surface: you can move your hand in the air. Controls corresponding to the mouse buttons are located on a surface that covers index finger. There is also a button "pause", temporarily breaking the manipulator.
The set includes a mini-receiver that plugs into a USB port. According to the manufacturer "glove-mouse" 3D Ion is compatible not only with Windows but also Mac OS, Linux and Android.
