Phone used as a 3D Mouse

By using Bluetooth, a mobile phone and it’s built in camera, developers have created a cool 3D mouse type application. It works kind of like a Wii remote control, although it uses no accelerometers which means it needs to use the video from the camera to work out what needs to be done. To interact with the computer you move the phone around or rotate it in front of the screen. You can interact with objects by clicking a button on the phone when the camera is pointing at it.

Tests indicate that it does work ok, although I think I would prefer to stick to my mouse right now unless they can convince me otherwise. It just seems a bit too fidgety trying to set it all up and hold your phone in the air.
