    Well it probably shows up as a keyboard, so you probably have to map the keys to commands. Looks very interesting though

    If only it had gyro mouse built in too. Then i would buy it for that price It does look like it has analog joysticks....could make that a mouse controller i guess....Needs more investigation.

    Keys are too small. I'd consider it for passengers though. Or when stopped.

    i', guessing that this is not that hard to create drivers for it, even for transforming the joysticks into a mouse.

    it can be usedas a regular remote even while you drive.. (play, pause, next..)

    and when you need to browse or change something you just slide it out.

    you even get a stand mount the recharge the unit !!

    will some one try it ?

    I know this thread is a bit old. But imma respond anyways in case there are new visitors. I used the PS3 Bluray Remote with my LINUX using bluetooth. Worked great. You just need to set your keymappings. Now integrating for active usage (while you're driving) may be tricky due to the smaller keys..it would be fine if you are parked and just kicking back in your car.

    I have one of those too and works great on my LINUX and Windows 7. I used it when I had my EEEPC mounted under the passenger seat. I tested it and will be using on my new project also with Windows 7 and Centrafuse (only when not driving for surfing web, when keyboard input is needed)
