Quantum Phantom program turns your smartphone into a wireless mouse (video)

The last time we saw Ben Wu, he was busy hammering Quantum Phantom – a prototype program that allows users to manipulate their desktop with a simple webcam. Now the engineer has expanded the concept to smartphones, as well, with a system that effectively turns any handset device with a wireless mouse. To achieve this, Wu plugged his phone Android on their PC via WiFi and Webcam IP application used to create a streaming video server. The results of the admission of Mr. Wu, are not exactly elegant (due to a configuration process heavy and low-resolution camera), but he managed to use his creation to sketch a face on the screen smiley . Look for yourself in the video demonstration after the break.
