DIY Mobile Phone Mouse.

The NokiaMouse. Some mods are just too weird to comment on, know what we mean? This one takes a common or garden mobile handset and turns it into a computer mouse. Huh? Now where did I put that ‘too much time on his hands’ tag? [Via Slashdot]

 If I had a mouse with me at all times that would be amazing. So, the NokiaMouse was born. Most phones now have a camera and can run Java, there is no reason that some software couldnt be written to watch for movement in the camera, and translate that into mouse signals for the PC. Bluetooth could be used to send the data to the PC. So there was my challenge, a java program that took multiple frames from the nokia camera, translated that into direction and speed and sent it to the PC as mouse movements.
