    Interesting similar hardware-based approach presented with several additional use cases (next to “classic” mouse/touch pad/keyboard) also barcode scanner, for example, is presented in this video:

    The good thing about this one is that for controlled PC this approach does not require any software to be installed. Additionally, Android device doesn’t have to be rooted.
