Play PS3 games on your iDevice with everyAir

by pandaelf

With a little wrangling of hardware and software, we were able to put together a demo of how to play PS3 games on an iPod, iPhone, and iPad.

The trick is to connect a capture device and a USB mouse/keyboard device to the PS3. The capture device sends video data to the PC, and the USB keyboard/mouse sends the button presses. On the PC itself, you run a custom build of everyAir which understands custom gestures and pipes the input to the PC which then sends it to the PS3 via the input interpreter. More details are described in the video.

    When do you expect to have this fully functional and ready would you say months weeks or days

    Can you tell us which kind of device we need to put on our ps3 ?? and how it does work?
    I’m very excited for this application :) it will be great if we can play with our ps3 remotely from other places :)

    @Mike – depends on what you mean by fully functional :) Ideally we would love to release a version that runs directly on the PS3 so that no extra hardware is required. Short of this, we’re working on a number of solutions to simplify the required hardware setup. The build shown in the video requires two additional hardware components, and this version will likely be available within a few weeks. Please note that it isn’t along our primary development roadmap (it’s considered one of our ‘labs’ experiments), so the schedule may vary a bit.

    @emulation – you simply need a video capture device such as a black magic capture card or a Hauppage HD PVR USB capture device for the video. The input is transported using a commercially available input mapper (sends commands over USB from the PC to the PS3). We’ll have more details on this as we get closer to the release :)
