EveryAir is the name of the remote desktop application that will allow users to play PS3 games on their iOS device.
Folks at PandaElf explain how it works:
The trick is to connect a capture device and a USB mouse/keyboard device to the PS3. The capture device sends video data to the PC, and the USB keyboard/mouse sends the button presses. On the PC itself, you run a custom build of everyAir which understands custom gestures and pipes the input to the PC which then sends it to the PS3 via the input interpreter.
There are two problems to solve: sending the video signal to the iOS device and sending back input from the iOS device. Sending the video signal is solved by using an off the shelf capture device, and then sending back the input is a combination of a custom build of everyAir with an off the shelf mouse/keyboard device that connects to the PS3.
They have also developed EveryAir – a remote desktop application that connects the iOS device to the PC.
You can checkout the impressive demo video of someone playing God Of War on the iPhone and Gran Turismo 5 on the iPad:
everyAir (iTunes link) that is currently available on the App Store does not support this feature but PandaElf are planning to release a fully customizable version of everyAir that will allow iOS device users to play PS3 games soon.
