The development of a variety of sensor technology, users smart phone, the use of motion recognition apparatus such as a console game machines is increasing. It tends to user needs motion recognition-based input device are increasing. Existing motion recognition mouse is equipped with a modified form of the mouse button on the outside and serves as a wheel mouse left and right buttons. Existing motion recognition mouse is to manufacture a small, there is a difficulty to operate the button. It is to apply the motion recognition technology the motion recognition technology is used only pointing the cursor there is a limit. In this paper, use of MEMS-based motion recognition sensor, the body of the two-point operation data by recognizing the operation of the (thumb and forefinger) and generating a control signal, followed by studies on the generated control signal to a wireless transmitting computer input device.
