Kensington turns the presentation pointer virtual

  • KensingtonWorks App offering customization of pointer size, shape and speed to suit a user’s presentation environment, and additional options, such as re-configuring the blackout button for use instead as a start and stop button for your slide presentation.
  • Ergonomist Approved Design that maximizes comfort with a contoured shape that minimizes wrist twist and an intuitive 4-button presentation clicker
