Accelerometer Mouse: Control PC Mouse Movements Using An Android Device’s Motion Sensor
There’s no shortage of Android apps in the Google Play Store that let you use your device as a mouse, keyboard or trackpad for your computer.
However, most of the available solutions require you to drag your finger over the device’s screen to control the mouse cursor.
New to the market, Accelerometer Mouse (currently in beta) is yet another Android app that lets you take control of your computer’s mouse movements over WiFi, but to achieve said purpose, it uses your Android device’s accelerometer.
That is, mouse movements are controlled by tilting your Android device to various angles.
The app works in combination with a Java-based desktop server that reads the mobile device’s movements transmitted over a common WiFi network, and translates them into real-time mouse movements on your computer’s screen.
The mobile client’s is extremely easy to use, with a UI that incorporates the looks of a regular PC mouse, complete with left, right and scroll buttons.
