[Maemo 5 / N900 Apps] BlueMaemo : playing games with the accelerometer

Posted on 05:09 by SlipKoRnSaad

You surely heard lately about a BlueMaemo as PS3 game controller? Well it's a remote controller application for Maemo-powered devices in the end taht turns your Maemo-powered device in a mixed Bluetooth keyboard-and-mouse device through the HID Bluetooth profile.

Some new features were added in BlueMaemo for Maemo5, one of these feature is the ability to send events using the accelerometer motion, it's still in a very early stage, but as you can see in the video below, you can already play simple games.

The accelerometer control is enabled via the button “one” and “two”(experimental air mouse) in the gamepad profile...

If you want to test the alpha version of BlueMaemo, you can grab it in the Extras-devel repository, please remember that the software in that repository is not intended for end users.
