I have created a laser pointer cotrolled through a PC mouse using an arduino and two servo motors. For getting the position of the mouse on the screen I’m running a small python script on the PC that uses the xlib library to get the current position of the mouse . This is then sent to the arduino over the USB, to control the servos. The full documentation is on my website
