    This graduate thesis describes the development of a software solution for the use of a smartphone as an input device for 3D manipulation of objects on a computer screen. We start with a description of the theoretical background with a brief overview of concepts, technologies and utilized development tools. What follows is a presentation of the individual components of the solution, which exposes the smartphone as a HID device on a computer running Microsoft Windows. This includes an Android user application for sensing orientation and a HID driver stack. Use of the driver is illustrated on the example of the Trimble Sketchup 3D modeling program, and we conclude with a discussion of the completed solution and possibilities for further work.
