CES 2013 bug LAS VEGAS, CES 2013 – Earlier today we posted a snippet about the Mauz dongle, and how it can turn your iPhone into a remote that can control your desktop through gestures, through either waving your iPhone around, or waving your hand over it. Now the Israeli-designed device has hit Kickstarter, with a funding goal of $150,000.

The 30-pin dongle leverages the accelerometer in the iPhone to recognize gestures, as well as more obscure technology to recognize hand gestures waved over the iPhone’s camera. We’ll be get a feel for how well (or not) the device works later this week when we pop over to the outfit’s suite for a demo.

Looks like the dongle will sell for $69 if the device is funded; or you can bag one for a $45 Kickstarter pledge.
