Universal remotes need to take a backseat now that Japanese company Thanko has released the Air Gesture Mouse that swipes like the sci-fi films.

Thanko is a unique company that produces some of the strangest products on the market. Its items mostly focus on things that involve some form of USB. The Air Gesture Mouse, though wireless, contains a USB dongle just like wireless mice. Once plugged in, users can swipe in midair just like the futuristic and sci-fi movies. At a surprising 35 grams, the lightweight glove has up to a 15-meter range and is compatible with Mac, Windows and Android products. The glove has a 12-hour battery life and is chargeable via USB as well. Unfortunately, the $62-glove is sold exclusively in Japan.
