PSP can be used to control workstations via wireless connection

Fancy operating your machine via remote control? A virtual network control (VNC) application called Portable VNC (PVNC) has appeared which makes it possible for a PSP user to operate a PC or workstation remotely over a wireless network. The application, which is the work of homebrew PSP developers named Team Xboxopensource, makes it possible, for example, for a high school or university server to be accessed remotely by students on-site using low-cost equipment.

PVNC's keyboard is operated using an on-screen overlay; while admittedly slower than typing, it's still less cumbersome than a physical plug-in keyboard. PSP already supports WiFi access for multi-player gaming; this same access can conceivably enable PVNC to connect to a common network point-of-access.
