View Full Version : IR Keyboard for PSP

August 13th, 2006, 00:04
A certain programmer has gotten a Pocket PC/Palm keyboard to work with the PSP. Sorry for the bad translation, it's just google.

"The pseudo one of this developer is Tundrwd. It has, starting from work of Vanya Sergeev (creative of the program irdacapture), carried out a driver allowing the use of a PocketTop keyboard (Micro Innovations), normally reserved the PDA, to function on a PSP 1.5.


Dimensions closed 1.43 X 8.2 X 11.7 cm

Dimensions open 95 X 8.2 X 23.0 cm

Weight 120 grams

Keyboard in QWERTY

A standard pile 1.5V “AAA”

Lifespan of the battery: 3 months

Keyboard with 4 keys shortened

9 keys configurable

Temperature of ranging use between 0 and 50 ºC"

That is from psp-generation.com

I have always been waiting for a keyboard for the PSP but the only problem is that if we want to use this then programmers or Links or AFKIM are going to have to reprogram their applications to get input from this keyboard. So this is going to have to be well known and easily implemented into homebrew in order to have significance.

PSP-linux would be awesome. They could probably incorporate this iR keyboard with it :)
