Hey folks we just came accross a new Tweak which is called everyAir By PandaElf. This awesome App lets you play your PS3 Games on your iDevice. everyAir is a remote desktop application that is designed to let you smoothly play games and rich media. With everyAir you’ll be able to play World of Warcraft, Starcraft 2, or any other game — all on your iPad, iPhone 4/3GS, or iPod Touch 3rd/4th Gen. You’ll also finally have streaming Flash videos and games at 30+ frames per second. If you wanted to use your business productivity apps, you could do that, too. But then with so many fun options, why would you want to?
TLDR version: We used some off the shelf hardware and everyAir to allow you to play PS3 games on any iOS device.
Q: What’s the overall picture for how this works?
A: 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.
Q: What were some of the hurdles?
A: There are two problems to solve: sending the video signal to the iOS device and sending back input from the iOS device. Sending the video signal is solved by using an off the shelf capture device, and then sending back the input is a combination of a custom build of everyAir with an off the shelf mouse/keyboard device that connects to the PS3.
Q: How do you send input to the PS3?
A: Using one of those USB Keyboard/Mouse devices. For example, Eagle Eye (search for it on Amazon).
Q: How do you get the video signal from the PS3 to the iOS device?
A: We do this by using an off the shelf capture device. The capture device connects to the PC, TV, and to the PS3. The result is that a livestream of the PS3’s video signal ends up on the PC.
Q: How do you connect to the PC from the iOS device?
A: Using everyAir – our remote desktop application.
Q: How does everyAir understand the game gestures?
A: We’re using a custom build of everyAir, and it’s hardcoded to understand these gestures. Additionally, it knows how to pipe input to the mouse/kb device in a way that it expects.
The game play of everyAir is awesome. You can see a video of it’s below in action.
If you are the owner of the PS3 and any iDevice which includes iPad,iPod3rd Gen,4th Gen,iPhone3GS,iPhone4 so you can grab this cool application only for $4.99.
