Next project: Flypad!

Ever wanted to use that mobile as a driving wheel? Or a keyboard? Touchpad? Well, why not?

There you are. Flypad. Using your touchscreen and bluetooth connection, it would be possible to use your Java Mobile phone as:
  1. Wireless mini keyboard
  2. Wireless mini touchpad
  3. Wireless driving wheel (if the phone's got an accelerometer)
Have a look at those prototype images of the 'keyboard' and 'touchpad' modes. The code for the 'driving wheel' is also almost ready, though there's nothing to show at the moment.

The driving wheel will be available only for Windows through a virtual joystick driver: PPJoy. I've tried that and the driver was working just perfectly (even under Vista).
