Wow this thread really got my attention, I think an app like that would be awesome! Hopefully some developers will jump on board with the idea. And sorry I'm not donating my ps3, I need a mental escape from this economy.

So what happened to the guy looking into the 3.0 sdk? I agree that this would be a great feature not only for the ps3, but for any bluetooth keyboard capable device

I would like it to be able to use as a remote for the blu-ray player more than a keyboard.

This is an interesting concept. I'm still more interested in getting a Bluetooth keyboard to work with my iPod touch, but this could open up lots of new things. However, for remote capabilities, something that might be easier to do would be to develop a little IR attachment at the bottom, then an application that can read the outputs from another remote, record them, and then reproduce them (like Novii Remote does, for WM and Palm). You might also see about asking the developers of Mobile Air Mouse to see if they can develop a version of their client software for the PS3, then just get Mobile Air Mouse on your iPod touch or iPhone and go from there.

Wow, this sounds amazing... I hate typing with the controller and can't afford to waste any money on a bluetooth keyboard. Is anyone going to give this a shot?

Just a quick note, I AM still looking into this. I say still, I mean have started again. Problems include an overzealous Apple protecting the bluetooth stack something chronic. I know I can do this open toolchain, but that's all a bit new to me, I'm used to standard apple SDK. Nonetheless, with my game development on hold, this will be a welcome relief from the woes of my degree!
One MAJOR issue is that my only iPhone OS device is a 1st gen iPod touch. No bluetooth. My girlfriend has a jailbroken 2nd gen iTouch, but that limits testing to whenever I have access to her iPod, AND time to develop. And especially in the early stages, it'll be more testing than coding, 'cos I have no idea if what I try will work!
Upside, it's definately possible. Downside, not sure I will ever get enough time to complete it. But I will certainly try.
OK, couple of things I've gleaned from the last 30 minutes
1. 100% impossible with Apple SDK. Unless you want to play audio via bluetooth, SDK is useless
2. Open SDK includes some headers for working with Bluetooth, but they'r undocumented and so I'd be fumbling in the dark
Does anyone have experience of using private Apple bluetooth API calls? How does one get that to work?

Well, I've persisted and decided that the btstack recently used to connect bluetooth keyboard to the iPhone is gonna give us a great shot at this. It's obviously not a million miles from what we want to do, so it's progress. I shall pinch my Dad's iPhone whilst I'm home for the Holidays, jailbreak it and use it for testing. I'm sure he won't mind!
I'm just having problems with getting the stack setup, aclocal giving me grief, and I've never been much good with using hacky stuff like this, I've always been a bit of a straight-and-narrow developer, sticking to published API's. This sorta thing is much more complex, but the possible payoff much more exciting!

Anyone try BD Touch? I found this in the App store for free, but it needs a BDTouch Blue-Ray disc inserted in the console before it will connect. I don't have any Blue-Ray movies to try it. This is there website BD Touch -

Just remember, bluetooth is not a only way, wifi is a solution.
BD Touch, for example, use wifi. Mobile Air Mouse too.

i was gonna post this thread
well im glad a developer is trying to get it done! if i can help in any way i will be glad to
edit: and nah it can only connect through bluetooth
when i connect my iPod Touch 2G to my PS3 it connects as an audio device so im able to use it as an microphone, but it has no voice recorder.. but at least a iPhone would work. dont know if that helps you in anyway?
