I just got the software working for the slaves that acts like Synergy! With all the pixel counting too! Right now it is only on the Teensy 3.1 with the USB Host Shield. It only runs one screen, but its super fast and the mouse cursor runs off one side of the screen to the other to simulate switching. Lets get right to the video:

Side Note: I just downloaded CamStudio (Open Source). It probably needs some new codecs (ffdshow) installed, so sorry the video is 581MB, 22sec, and 10 lousy frames per second. You will have to believe me that is is much much smoother than it looks, until I can get better screen recording.

In the entire video, the mouse position is constantly estimated without any drivers or communication with the computer.

Still A Lot of Work To Do:

The setup, from the last log:

hello, nice project! Can you please detail the algorithm you made to estimates the x/y value ? Did you enter the size of the screen in your code ?
