Those gifted gents over at the BTStack might just be too clever for their own good. First they blow our minds by sneaking Wiimote support onto the iPhone, and then tickle our productivity-loving souls by hacking in Bluetooth keyboard support. It’s a bit awkward to be typing away on a physical keyboard, only to have to reach over and poke the screen whenever you want to do something – wouldn’t it be nice to be able to use a mouse instead?

Yes, yes it would. And the BTStack guys agree.

It’s still a private project, so it’s not quite ready for the likes of you and I quite yet – but if this video is any indication, it’s working like a dream. And hey, don’t bother me with that “At this point, you might as well be carrying a netbook!” nonsense. This is magic, folks. Magic.
