SciLor, from XDA-developers, is working on an interesting tool that allows users to control one Windows Mobile device with another through Bluetooth. This could prove useful in handling one device as a wireless gamepad when playing games through an emulator on the other device. If you happen to have a device without a D-pad or hardware keyboard, then you might have discovered the limitations that come with that type of form factor. A separate Bluetooth gamepad can be purchased, but this could be a great alternative for those with spare devices.
SciLor demonstrates his WinMoBlue project below using an HTC HD2, HTC Kaiser and a PlayStation emulator. At the moment, it appears that it’s only useful as a gamepad for FPSEce, Morphgear and other emulators. It doesn’t function correctly as a regular keyboard, but perhaps that may be supported in the future. It certainly could come in handy for typing lengthy documents. WinMoBlue is still early in development, but a test version is already available. Learn more from XDA-developers.
