Well, in both of the projects i was involved in (prototyping a new augmented reality device) i needed a flexible form factor that i could freak into a convincing physical device) and i couldnt see the screen, and i couldnt always be in wifi or bluetooth range. The original post in rhis thread asked for a hand held solution that would work anywhere in a large commercial gym. Else you would be correct.

It seems to me that you guys are making this much too complicated.
Why not just use a wireless USB keyboard with a wireless mouse?
I have a Gyration Ultra which works great!
They may even have remotes too.
You can always custom tailor your Revolution on screen controls to
be easy to use in the classroom environment.
Alternatively, you could try:
FrogPad Bluetooth Right-handed - Keyboard - wireless - Bluetooth
It takes up just 1/2 the keyboard space.
