Some mobile games are extremely interactive since it requires a lot of movement. Now its possible to bring to interactivity to the PC without having to buy additional hardware. Just use the hardware you already have : your phone.

Any andriod phone (iOS soon) can communicate to a computer through wifi.

SocketIO was used to communicate phone accelerometer data to the computer

There was large lag spikes when the controller was connected causing sub-par game play meaning less interactivity for the user so not as fun.

I was able to quickly built a game to demo the phone controller and setup the connection between the phone and the computer with little resistance.

How accelerometer orientation works and also learned about other sensor data that could be handy such as an magnetometer and gyroscope.

Make it something that can be easily used on any plat form. Even VR.
