MAUZ is a dongle for the iPhone that turns it into a gesture enabled mouse. The accessory is seeking funding on Kickstarter.

Here are some of the ways you can use it:

Mouse Interface
Full computer mouse interface - right click, left click and scroll functions. All you have to do is connect MAUZ to your smartphone, wait for the MAUZ app to launch and that's it. If a TouchPad is what you desire - simply tilt the phone and the app will change from a computer mouse to a TouchPad interface

Motion Gestures
Get rid of those old school notions - use the z-axis and employ different movements to interact with your computer programs in a whole different way.

● 3D Navigation - Works similar to a Wii controller for your computer - just move the phone around to rotate your design work / flight simulator / whatever else...
● Program gestures to fit your need - World of Warcraft enthusiast? Slay that dragon with a swish of your MAUZ; an avid PowerPoint user? Create a gesture to align objects to the left; devoted web surfer? Create a gesture to move back and forward between your pages - Whatever your poison is... create a gesture for it.

Visual Gestures
MAUZ responds to how your hand moves above the phone's camera, if you have to align objects to the left just signal to the left and if you want to zoom in/out or pan the earth in Google Earth simply move your hand back/front and sideways to see that ball rolling!

The MAUZ visual gestures are pre-programmed to interact with different computer applications. A swish of the hand to the right can mean the next song on your playlist or change the color of an object in Photoshop. You can also customize them to your own needs.

MAUZ plans to offer developers an SDK to customize its use for applications. The project is seeking $150,000 in funding and anticipates shipping in June. An early bird pledge of $45 will get you one dongle. Check out the video below for more information.

What about Iphone5?

With the iPhone 5 you can use one of the many mobile / air mouse apps, or if you want to use this semi-useless dongle - get a 30 pin to lightning adapter

Exactly. I use MobileMousePro. It's cheaper, better, and there's no dongle... Lol

Why buy it? You can download mobile air mouse app to have the same functionality and more without a dongle.
