Turn an android tablet into a drawing tablet

At the end of the project we should be able to use an android tablet as a drawing tablet in our Linux environment.

You should be able to draw and see a mockup on your tablet, after you stopped drawing your input will be transmitted over wifi to your machine, a short moment after the real picture will be shown on your tablet.

You have to be able to choose on which part of your X-Screen you will draw, and be able to rotate the screen, zoom out and zoom in. The input itself can be smoothed, before the real drawing will happen.

  • Move drawing screen
