You do know asking for pointers in an X list is misleading, don't you? :)
All jokes aside, I recently started a thread with a similar goal and
got no answers - actually my initial idea was similar to the DMX thing
also suggested in this thread. One challenge I want to tackle (and
you probably don't) is to be able to have multiple pointers: one from
the touchscreen of the tablet and one from the laptop.
In any case, please let me know if you get anywhere regarding this
idea since I haven't been able to move much forward.
