Remote Page turning via USB Networking by Xmouse APP controlled by a presenter

Thanks to excellent XMouse APP (Android), page turning can be remotely controlled via USB Networking by a presenter or a BT connected gamepad. An android device is needed instead.
Nothing need to be plugged in. These devices are common and can be easily got for use.

Can you please describe more how this works?

You install this Android app on a phone, and then plug it into the Kindle?

The phone which sends SSH commands to Kindle is connected with Kindle via USB Networking by wifi, and an OTG presenter is connected with the phone. The presenter controls Kindle via the phone. The solution works but is not perfect, hope better one comes out.

And with a bit of local networking setup - I can control your page turns also.

Ah, the land of public key authorized remote page turns.
Just great for one of those study at home courses.
Instructor turns pages at a regular interval, you miss a page of the reading assignment, you lose.

Maybe file this one under "Parental Controls"?
(That is where the child with the Kindle/'phone controls what the parents do.)

ah, interesting.

I had seen someone do that before if you want to look at that: https://mbarabasz.wordpress.com/2013...e-page-turner/



I made this standalone version, but the wifi was not really reliable, I could not always deliver my packets - I was not using ssh, but my own page turn program.

I never uploaded it to github, becuase it never worked very well, but I can upload it if people demand it.

but it was all self contained, because the ESP8266 runs a wifi hotspot itself, and it can also connect to your home wifi.
