    Glad you guys like the idea. Hope a lot of people *bump* this thread. Let it heard.
    I don't want anyone to think it's not possible.
    We though iTouch FTP was impossible, but my ipod touch is running as an ftp online RIGHT NOW.
    Need someone that know how to program to do this.

    Maybe use something like Jggiy as an interface.

    Write it in java through Jiggy even.
    I would do it, but I'm a hardware expert, I don't know sh*t about programing.

    additionally, could u use it as a potential plug in drawing pad? like you draw with ur finger and what you draw shows up in a drawing program?

    this is all hypothetically speaking of course, i dont think any of this will ever happen

    What about sideshow support? That would be cool to have while the iPod is plugged in and even more fun if it was wireless!

    To be honest I think this is the best application suggested. Consider the possibilties. A touch tablet for your computer with an LCD screen. Wacom has the Cintiq that cost 3000 dollars so if it was possible with the iPod Touch it would be quite amazing. The ability to draw on it and that come up in say photoshop.

    I think it would be awesome if somebody could port PebblesPC (google it).

    It is for Palm OS and Windows Mobile, and it allows you to use your device as a keyboard, mose, and programmable remote over a wireless network.

    No.. SoahmZ. Read the thread. An input device is like a mouse, keyboard or tablet for the pc.
