[App]Use Kobo as wifi-touchpad

I just started coding some python scripts to control your mousepointer from the Kobo and use it as a wifi-touchpad.

Update1:
Now supports left and right mousebuttons and a very quick restarting to nickel.

At the moment its not really fast and works only on Windows.
For left mousebutton use the homebutton, right mousebutton is not yet implemented.

You need python 2.7 and pywin32 for it to work and a working telnet on your Kobo.

Place screen in the rootfolder of your kobo and the scripts in a folder on your pc and start them both with run.bat after you changed the ip in both .py scripts to your kobo-ip.

Enjoy!

Very neat! I haven't tried it (I'm on Linux), but if you set it up to work with USB networking instead of wi-fi the responsiveness would be much better.
