5. CollecTic – Interactive PSP Game

Though not really a mod, this homebrew game is quite interesting none the less. Jonas Hielscher has developed an interactive PSP game called “CollecTic”, which basically “has you running around outside trying to collect WLAN access points with your portable”.

Each point is given a distinct color, geometric shape and sound based on its particular MAC address. The size of the point is determined by how strong the signal is. The object of the game is to fill your three-by-three grid with shapes, finishing with three in a row


4. Nintendo DS Lite Camera

…apparently he’s taken a Treva CMOS chipset, done a bit of rewiring, and written software that allows the unit to output images directly to his DS Lite


3. PSP Robot Remote v0.3

Netoo is back at it again, he’s released a version 0.3 of his PSP Robot Remote. This version includes a new graphical menu and other goodies that you’ll see in the video.

2. PSP Motion Sensor
