Here’s a cool $6 iPhone app that will let your iPhone act as a remote mouse and keyboard for your computer. What I like most about this is the remote mouse, it’s like having a wireless motion-sensing mouse, great for those of you with trouble even getting out of your bed. Would love to see this end up as an actual consumer product some day soon. (I’ve seen some already.)
Using the accelerometer and touchscreen of either an iPhone or iPod touch, Air Mouse works over a local Wi-Fi network to control you computer’s mouse and keyboard. Before using the app, you do need to install a small application on your computer-there’s a version for both Mac OS X and Windows users-which manages the connection and controls many of the mouse and keyboard settings.
