Videos Of The Xbox360 Chatpad On A PSP

[10rdonic0] sent us this video of the Xbox360 Chatpad being used with some Sony PSPs. [Jean] over at has been developing custom firmware for the Chatpad wich allows it to work with the PSP.  You can see that he’s able to type pretty quickly on the On Screen Keyboard app and maneuver the internet decently.  From what he says, not all apps are functional yet, but it’s coming.

  1. It’s cool to see that this will work with the 1000 and 2000 series. Maybe if my IR keyboard (or PSP, for that matter) breaks I’ll pick up one of these, though making the custom cables and recoding the chatpad’s software may be prohibiting.

  2. I just can’t get excited about a development that needed to come about 3 yeas ago

    I look at that and all I can think is buy a Pandora. Built in keyboard, USB host, much more power and resolution than a PSP, all for a reasonable price with a huge extended life battery as standard. And it runs linux with kdrive out of the box, with 2 SD slots.

  3. miles: Where exactly do you think you are? This is hackaday, a website about

    hacks. With that said this is a fantastic hack and Ill definitely be looking into to

    purchasing a chatpad for this use.

  4. I just said what I felt about the hack, it is a comment section.

    I am not selling them, or providing links or advertising.

    The PSP isn’t a good mobile computing platform, neither is the iPhone in my opinion.

  5. Im guessing that u reprogrammed the chatpad to mimic the series of button/direction presses needed to type the character you chose. Good effort

    what happens if you press a direction between chatpad inputs? does the chatpad sense that and correct itself, or will it type with an offset? What I mean is, if I press down on the psp, then type a letter, will it be typing one virtual button below where it should be, or does the chatpad detect and correct?
