This invention is a device for controlling your PC (personal computer) from a distance, with a range approximating the length of a large conference room. It’s implementation in a portable PC can best be described as a “removable touch pad” that becomes the PC remote control when it is removed from the system. In a business setting, it can be used for controlling PowerPoint presentations while standing at the front of a meeting room. In a home setting, it can be used as a remote control for audio or DVD playback when the PC is hooked up to a home entertainment or television system. It can also be used to control a slide show of digital photographs while the PC is hooked up to a television set. These are only a few examples of potential uses for this invention.
