Control multi-touch on your computer using an iPhone

I like the direction Stefan is taking over at the Media Computing Group in building a MultiTouch.framework in Cocoa for OS X.

As one of its features, you can use the multi-touch on an iPhone to control multiple touchpoints on a Mac. I’ve wondered about doing something similar to drive touch points on a Vista machine. It should work though the eventing would need to be specialized.

Check out the YouTube video below if you want to be inspired.

Along these lines, I’ve also thought about leveraging the accelerometer on the iPhone in a similar fashion to control apps on a Tablet PC, notebook, or desktop. Makes a lot of sense.
