Zeemote JS1 controller demoed with Quake 3

The guys from Zeemote emailed me last year asking if we knew any Android developers that might be interested in adding support for the JS1 Bluetooth controller. It took them awhile, but Zeemote finally released their Android SDK which allows devs to take advantage of analog control and navigation by integrating support for the JS1 controller.

First person shooter games are the perfect titles to utilize the analog controls and a developer from the UK was able to get the Zeemote JS1 working with the Quake 3 port from our Android Bounty. A quick video after the jump shows the game in action.

Zeemote claims that existing Android applications can be adapted in a matter of hours, but it’s hard to justify support when we don’t know how many controllers are out there. Amazon does not sell the JS1 but I was able to find it on Best Buy’s online store for $39.99.

Useful accessorie or gimmick? Would you be willing to spend $40 on a wireless controller for you Android phone?
