Question
Dear Prof Cleggsan

Is it possible to design and construct a Touch Screen Integrated Wireless Keyboard and Trackball Mouse for Desktops, Servers, Workstations Computers which run on Windows, Linux etc OS ?.

The Keyboard and Mouse GUI interface will be similar to a Smartphone / Cellphone or TV Remote control portable Device.

If No, what are the Limitations for the Design and Construction ?.

Thanks & Regards,
Prashant S Akerkar

Answer
There are some common protocol standards for most operating systems but I am not knowledgeable about the interface to Android or Ios.

My inclination is that some software must be developed for such a wide commonality of devices but that is just my personal opinion.

I suggest you refer this matter to a operating system expert or design engineer of such devices.

The above is a USB interfaced device that comes close to what you might be looking for but not exactly.  FYI.

cheers.
