The Tap Strap 2 AirMouse works right out of the box as a standard Bluetooth device and does not require any software drivers or calibration. As an AirMouse, it has three user-selected modes of operation:
- Mouse Mode, which allows users to control a cursor, click and scroll just like they would with a standard mouse.
- Multimedia Mode, where users can play, pause, adjust volume and move to the next or previous track.
- Smart TV mode, through which users can navigate menus, select items and search for content.
Tap Strap 2 uses onboard intelligence to know what interaction the user intends automatically. When a user’s hand is horizontal, Tap Strap 2 becomes a keyboard, and when the thumb rests on a surface, it seamlessly switches to optical mouse mode. When the user’s hand is rotated vertically, Tap Strap 2 will switch gears yet again into AirMouse mode.
