Okay first post bare with me.
What I want to do is use my Android phone as an external monitor that has touch control for my laptop.
I am not talking about "tethering" because that inherently means I want to use my Adroid phone as a 3g hotspot for my laptop...this is not the case.
I am not talking about "remote desktop protocol" because it also uses a network router or ad hoc connection.
Such programs like PDAnet and PhonemyPC are solutions, but all require an internet access and are more geared towards controlling your home PC from anywhere in the world. They require a third party server and do not work as a peer to peer mode.
I simply want to either use a usb cord, bluetooth, or ad hoc wifi to connect to my computer.
The idea is to have a it used in the Car connected to a car PC. Now I know there are touchscreen monitors out there that are relatively cheap, but that is the issue....they are cheap CHINESE POS...and they do not have a capacitive touchscreen and need a stylus to really use them.
There are touchscreen monitors out there such as this one:
VM70 7in LCD widescreen touchscreen monitor, VGA Wide XGA WXGA WSXGA+ monitor screen touch, touch screen display
But require two connections...one VGA cord and a USB cord for control. The size is an issue too. Nothing smaller than 7" is available. Also, that monitor become attractive to steal. I could just take my phone with me.
Ideally, I would like to not have any cables to connect, but at most a USB cord would be fine (possibly charge the phone simultaneously). The perfect situation is to be able to get into my car, mount my phone into my window car mount that I use, connect to PC.
Seeing PhonemyPC display and control a pc without any wires makes me think someone out there can or has done this before.
I believe there could be a market for this, especially for Car and Car audio enthusiests.
Sorry for the long post...but thanks in advance for an answer or guidance!
