Show your Android device screen on PC

There are times, when you wish to show the Android device screen to audience or prepare a tutorial.
One way is to use a video camera, another way is to use a JAVA based file called Droid Screen.

Using the tool/ Java file - Droid@Screen you can easily show the screen of an Android device on a computer/laptop. Perhaps if the audience is large, then you could even project the desktop using a LCD-projector. Droid@Screen is mostly used for training/teaching and demonstration purposes.

You can download the tool from here.
