iPhone to Control PS3 Blu-Ray Player

In a recent Gizmodo interview with CTO Denny Breitenfeld, a NetBlender SDK will soon allow Apple's iPhone and iPod touch to communicate with the PS3 console's Blu-ray player.

According to NetBlender, iPhone users will soon be able to remotely control their PS3 using an application called BD Touch.

"It's a technology that is built into our professional Blu-Ray authoring tool that will allow studios, independent movie companies to enable BD Touch features.

These features send data in two directions from the Disc to the iPhone and vice versa. Video, Audio, text, and player commands can be sent.

NetBlender will make its official announcement on Thursday.

No its not bluetooth because as said in the article, its for both phone and touch. It probably is wifi.
