Using nexus 7 as a wireless keyboard/mouse

You may search for a solution for using computer as entertainment HTPC. RemoteDroid is a Android app that turn your Android smartphone/tablet into a wireless keyboard and touch pads for your computer over WiFi network. It requires a client app installed on nexus 7 and a server software with Java installed on computer, and both devices are on the same WiFi network.

* On your computer (Windows, OS X, and Linux), launch the server app and it shows the IP address.
* On Android device, open the client, enter the IP address listed on the server, and tap Connect.
* Then your tablet will become a touch-pad layout. The mousing surface is red rectangle on the top, and the keyboard input is to activate green keyboard icon.

It is better than my Logitech Dinovo bluetooth keyboard.
