Nebudroid: Your Android Is Now An NES Controller


nebudroidNebudroid is an upcoming Android Application thta will allow you to use your Android Phone as NES controller! It works in several different ways, for example you can actually move it around and rotate/tilt your phone to control it in car/racing games or the screen can light up with buttons as if it were a regular NES remote. Check out the video to see what I mean:

Pretty neat little app assuming it works as advertised! Keep in mind that this doesn’t work with an actual Nintendo Entertainment System but only NES emulators for your Windows XP/Vista/Win7 Computer and the developer said he will TRY to release a version for Linux and Mac OS X. Unfortunately NONE of the versions are available now (unless you donate) but the actual download page says that it will be available very, very soon.


Using your Android as an NES remote to play Mario 3 on an emulator on your PC. <Guinness Commercial> Brilliant! </Guinness Commercial>

I also love traveling... where do you want to go?

  1. Ooooh… but the thing is… will it be able to use two buttons at the same time?

  2. Sorry if in the video it shows if it does… but vids are blocked here at school :(

  3. Wonder if some phone manufacturers could put an infrared LED in phone. That would make your phone an awesome Universal Remote Control.

  4. So I’m assuming this would only work for the droids that have multi-touch enabled…so much for us G1 early adopters.

  5. Now if only Google could implement the whole BT stack into Android they would outrun the WiiRemote by far… :-)

  6. @Ted417
    Yes it would on HTC Hero since it’s multi-touch enabled

  7. reason 967 why android is awesome.
    Will this work on any windows NES emulator? I don’t have one on my computer but I definitley need one now. Anyone know of a good one or a site with a bunch of NES games?

  8. dude.. that’s friggen awesome. There need to be way more apps that use multi-touch. The hero isn’t realizing its full potential yet.
