Introducing: fingerpoken - a mobile device as a touchpad/remote/keyboard

I'm giving a presentation this week at the Puppet Bay Area user meetup and while working on slides, I wanted to be able to present while not being attached to my laptop.

Enter: fingerpoken

Fingerpoken lets you turn your iphone/ipad/itouch into a touchpad, keyboard, and remote for another computer. The only required piece on your iphone is Safari. No appstore stuff to download!

Under the hood, it uses websockets and touch events and sends JSON-encoded requests to your workstation and will move the mouse, type, scroll, and more.

Project page: fingerpoken on github.
