Description Rekimoto et al. propose the use of a dedicRekimoto et al. propose the use of a dedicated hardware button, called SyncTap, which can be pressed synchronously on 2 devices to establish a connection between them over a network. As a result it can be possible to transfer images from a digital camera to a computer, connect 2 PCs together to share documents between them, connect a PDA to a wireless printer to print documents, or establish a connection between a laptop and a computer attached to a projector to launch a presentation. SyncTap can also be used for establishing a wireless connection between computers, which can then facilitate transferring mouse cursor movement across different screens. cursor movement across different screens.  +
