1. A mobile communication terminal comprising:
a motion sensor;
a transceiver configured for communication with a target apparatus including a display screen; and
a processing unit configured to:
establish, via the transceiver, a communication link with the target apparatus having the display screen adapted to visualize an object,
detect an amount of movement of the mobile communication terminal, via the motion sensor,
generate motion information for moving the object using the amount of movement of the mobile communication terminal, and
transmit the motion information to the target apparatus,
wherein the amount of movement is detected based on at least one of current position information, acceleration information, and angular velocity information of the mobile communication terminal.
