How To Use Your Laptop's Keyboard And Mouse With Your Phone And Tablet IoGear KeyShair!

Some solutions like Synergy allow using the same keyboard and mouse on different computers (regardless their OS – you can use Synergy with Windows, Mac an even Linux) connected to the same WiFi network, but how about mobiles and tablets (Synergy can also be used with some rooted Android models, but hey, that’s no longer a simple task, isn’t it!!!)?

23-in Full HD HP Sprout Creativity Station Product J4W72AA#ABA
There’s been a while since we heard exciting news from the desktop side of personal computing! But that’s all about to change with the Sprout, the latest HP project in desktop personal computers, a 23-in touch screen Windows 8.1 machine with Intel RealSense 3D camera which combines depth-sensing and infrared cameras for accurate 3D scanning and a second screen projected on a large capacitive touchpad called TouchMat to allow users Kinect-type interactions with the PC. So how does it actually work? The main screen of the Sprout works just like any Windows 8 touch enabled LCD. The Illumintor (that scanner part) scans 2D and 3D objects placed on the TouchMat, transfers them live to a design app on the Sprout and allows users to interact with scans using the same TouchMat as input device and secondary display at the same time! Cool, isn’t it?

ALSO READ about the Cubify Sense 3D Scanner

The HP Sprout Creativity Station is powered by a 4th gen Core i7-4790S processor and has NVIDIA GeForce GT graphics, 1TB of storage, 8GBs of RAM (upgradable to 16GB) and a 23″ Full HD 1080p touch-enabled backlit LCD display.
