219w ago - Today Tomasz Sterna has shared a guide and video of a Nokia N900 running an SNES emulator with a PS3 Sixaxis controller.

This demonstration comes not long after other recent N900 developments, including the release of Open Remote Play (ORP) v1.3 for the Nokia N900 and a Control the PS3 with a Nokia N900 via BlueMaemo video.

To quote from the video's caption: "Video demonstration of setup allowing to play emulated games on Nokia N900 using PS3 Sixaxis controller."

Those interested can check out the video below of a Sony PlayStation 3 controller hooked up to the Nokia N900 to play SNES games!



 

Open Remote Play (ORP) v1.3 for the Nokia N900 Released

223w ago - Inspired by the recent Nokia N900 via BlueMaemo video, today kakarotoks has ported PS3 Open Remote Play (ORP) for the Nokia N900.

Download: Open Remote Play (ORP) v1.3 for Nokia N900

To quote: For those interested, here's a build of Open Remote Play running on the N900.

Just follow the instructions... I didn't bother creating a .deb, so just scp those files somewhere on your N900 (like /opt/orp) and run /opt/orp/orpui directly through xterm or using ssh.

It works, but it seems that the rendering with the SDL is extremely CPU hungry so it's slower than bearable, not usable at all actually... The UI also needs some work. I had to disable the bitrate setting in the profile edition page, because it didn't fit in the resolution of the screen, and there was no scrollbar, so it was impossible to save the ip address of the ps3.

The input key bindings also need to be changed since they refer to non existing keys on the N900 keyboard (F1/F2/F3/F4/Escape/etc..). I tried to take a screencast, but it didn't work...

224w ago - Below is a video from MaemoItalia demonstrating how to control the PS3 with the Nokia N900 via BlueMaemo.

BlueMaemo is a remote controller program for the Maemo-powered devices. With BlueMaemo you can turn your Maemo-powered device in a mixed Bluetooth keyboard-and-mouse device through the HID Bluetooth profile.

When you have a PlayStation 3 or PC running Windows, Linux or Mac OS X the PS3 / PC is Bluetooth-ready and supports the HID Bluetooth profile. You have a Nokia Nseries phone with BlueMaemo loaded and you're now in control.

Windows XP and Media Center Edition:

• Turn bluetooth on.
• Start BlueMaemo on the device.
• Go to the bluetooth preferences and choose 'Add a new device'.
• Choose the device and choose a blank password (you can also choose a numeric password the PassAgentKey will appear on the device asking for the password).

Recently astrogirl wrote a BlueMaemo pairing guide for PS3 users, to quote:

The steps I do to pair are: On the PS3 go to the menu Settings > Accessory Settings > Manage Bluetooth Devices.

• Press Register New Device and...
