Intel Remote Keyboard announced, Lets you control your NUC from your Android device

Intel Remote Keyboard

With the release of Intel’s latest Baytrail platform, the company has been making a push for small form factor computing devices. This includes devices like the NUC (Next Unit of Computing) as well as the Compute Stick. These computing systems aren’t specifically meant for standard desktop computing scenarios and are typically used without a permanently attached keyboard or mouse in an HTPC or digital signage setting. To assist in this use case, Intel has announced a brand new Android application that will let you control the Windows running machines from your phone or tablet.

The Android application lets you authenticate with the system using a QR code and simplifies the pairing process. You now get access to a full QWERTY keyboard as well as Windows specific shortcuts & buttons. A virtual trackpad has also been built in with support for single and two finger taps as well as scrolling. The Intel Remote Keyboard is certainly not the first application to facilitate a keyboard and mouse for a Windows machine but having an officially supported solution is always great. The free application can be downloaded via the link below.
