A method to change a smartphone into a computer mouse and a technique to make auto-balancing cycles were selected as excellent projects at the Samsung Software Membership Exhibition.  

Samsung Electronics held the 7th Samsung Software Membership Exhibition from Sept. 27 to 28. The tech giant started the event in 1991 to nurture hidden talents in the software sector and to expand its base. This year, 15 creative projects were displayed at the event. 

The project that won the first prize was SDevice produced by Sinchon membership students. It is a project related to the Android operating system, which enables a mobile device to double as a computer mouse or a speaker, eliminating the need for those devices.  

A smart bicycle also drew a lot of attention at the event, since it can automatically balance even when a rider releases the handlebars. The bicycle provides information about the rider's surroundings as well. When a destination is set via a smartphone, the connection between Bluetooth and hardware installed on the handlebars helps the rider find the way without looking at the smartphone. 

A mirroring app based on a multi-window service and Wi-Fi Direct provides multiple mirroring services to smartphones and also all kinds of displays connected with Wi-Fi Direct using external display equipment.
