254w ago - Today Tomasz Sterna has shared a [Register or Login to view links] 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

259w 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...

259w ago - Below is a video from MaemoItalia demonstrating how to control the PS3 with the Nokia N900 via BlueMaemo.

[Register or Login to view links] 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).

Nokia is Suing Apple Over Patent Infringements on the iPhone

400°
269w ago - Nokia has said that it is suing its US rival Apple for infringing patents on mobile phone technology for the iPhone.

Nokia said it had not been compensated for its technology, and accused Apple of "trying to get a free ride on the back of Nokia's innovation".

To quote: The 10 alleged patent infringements involve wireless data, speech coding, security and encryption.

Apple, which did not comment on the news, saw its shares dip slightly,

The breaches applied to all models of the iPhone since its launch in 2007, Nokia added.

Finland's Nokia said that it had agreements with about 40 firms - including most mobile phone handset makers - allowing them to use the firm's technology, but that Apple had not signed an agreement.

"The basic principle in the mobile industry is that those companies who contribute in technology development to establish standards create intellectual property, which others then need to compensate for," said Ilkka Rahnasto, vice president of Legal & Intellectual Property at Nokia.

"Apple is also expected to follow this principle."

He added that during the last two decades, Nokia had invested approximately 40bn euros (£36.2bn; $60bn) on research and development.
 

Prototype Nokia Phone Recharges Itself Without Wires

550°
287w ago - Nokia has invented a cell phone that recharges itself using a unique system: It harvests ambient radio waves from the air, and turns that energy into usable power.

Enough, at least, to keep a cell phone from running out of juice.

To quote: Nokia's system isn't finicky about where it gets its wireless waves. TV, radio, other mobile phone systems - all of this stuff just bounces around the air and most of it is wasted, absorbed into the environment or scattered into the ether.

Nokia picks up all the bits and pieces of these waves and uses the collected electromagnetic energy to create electrical current, then uses that to recharge the phone's battery.

Currently Nokia is able to harvest all of 5 milliwatts from the air; the goal is to increase that to 20 milliwatts in the short term and 50 milliwatts down the line. That wouldn't be enough to keep the phone alive during an active call, but would be enough to slowly recharge the cell phone battery while it's in standby mode, theoretically offering infinite power.

Nokia says it hopes to commercialize the technology in three to five years.
