Turning camphones into remote controls

High Energy Magic is turning camera phones into remote controls. The system relies on the SpotCode reader software – downloaded via SMS or installed manually – to allow the camera phone to recognize a special tag and communicate via Bluetooth with a local server. To link up the net for companies such as Bango.net, the system employs GPRS.

The handset becomes a universal pointing device, personal display and keyboard to interact with computers: dragging volume controls or automatically linking to a specific music website by clicking on a compact disc.
