$149 (about £98) Man­u­fac­turer In­no­va­tive De­vices, myce­s­

3 Myce­s­tro is a small, three-but­ton de­vice worn on your in­dex fin­ger that al­lows you to con­trol your on-screen pointer, in­stead of a mouse or track­pad. Touch your thumb to the side of the Myce­s­tro and wave your hand in the di­rec­tion you want the pointer to move, or slide your thumb to scroll. De­signed for use in con­fined spa­ces, it does take a bit of get­ting used to and can feel a lit­tle im­pre­cise – plus you’ll need to raise the sen­si­tiv­ity lest you fall vic­tim to wrist strain. While it has some po­ten­tial, the hum­ble track­pad is still be a bet­ter bet for now. Alex Blake

It’s cer­tainly a nice idea, but the Myce­s­tro needs more pol­ish be­fore it be­comes an es­sen­tial travel com­put­ing ac­ces­sory.
