Play PS3's Gran Turismo 5 on an iPad

Hack by company called Pandaelf lets iOS users play PlayStation 3 games such as Gran Turismo 5 on any Apple device.

Fancy playing PlayStation 3 exclusive game titles such as Gran Turismo 5 on any iOS device? A company by the name of Pandaelf has recently cobbled together a system to deliver exactly this function.

The exact science behind the contraption is quite technical, but it basically utilizes a PC as the middleman between the Sony console and Apple product. Other major components include a keyboard, mouse, and capturing device connected to the console, as well as a custom-built version of the firm's everyAir software and an input interpreter running on the PC.

Pandaelf plans to release a fully customizable copy of everyAir in the future. Until then, check out the above iPhone and iPad demonstrations with in-game touch controls.
