LibreOffice Impress Remote Clone

Hi, has anyone of you tried the LibreOffice Impress Remote? For presentations is 10x better than any other remote in UnifiedRemote. I'd like to build it myself but I don;t know where to start. Key components are:
- The screen visualizes only the Preview of the current slide
- moving your finger over the image there is a red bright dot that shows up and is superimposed to the presentation (cursor = big red dot)
- Volume up and down go to next and previous slide
I'd appreciate any pointer to begin building the above.
The functionality of the purpose-built Java-based app written for LibreOffice is much more powerful than the remotes used in Unified Remote (UR). Certainly the screen preview part is the hardest to replicate - there is a Screen remote with UR that shows you the entire screen as displayed by your monitor, but at least on my setup it is laggy and buggy.
The closest I could think you would come with UR would be to have a custom remote that dedicated a portion of the remote to a touchpad that moved the cursor on-screen (like the included Basic remote), and a portion that acted like the included Slideshow remote (buttons that moved up/down through slides/jumped to particular slide by number). The Slideshow remote also allows slide navigation via hardware volume buttons.
So essentially from your list you would have the functionality of  and half of  (there would be no red dot, just the regular mouse pointer).
