View Full Version : Mouse and Keyboard?

Will it be possible to use a mouse and keyboard with the Ouya via either Bluetooth or usb?

I have an Asus transformer tablet (1st gen) running ICS 4.0 and was simply able to plug in the usb dongle for my wireless mouse and it just worked automatically. Wondering if it will be the same with the Ouya and if a keyboard can also be connected for ease of typing and even better precision while play FPS games. :)

That would be up to the developer. You can't expect to plug a mouse and keyboard and have it work if there isn't support for it in the game

All Android environments support a mouse cursor (either controlled with an actual mouse, or with a trackpad mouse like the OUYA controller has), and clicks simulate touch events. The majority of Android apps can be used this way. Mousewheel events will even scroll an Android scrollview if the cursor is on top of one. Two-column scrolling-heavy apps like Reddit Is Fun work great with a mouse.

I've been using this with the OUYA - http://www.staples.com/Microsoft-Wireless-Desktop-800/product_923063

It's cheap and works perfectly.

I totally forgot I had the RC11 remote and tried last night, works like a charm. BUT there is some keyboard mapping I have to figure out for XBMC:

Thanks for all the tips here for alternative remote options!
Has anyone used this one? > http://www.geekbuying.com/item/KP-810-16A-3-in-1-iPazzPort-2-4GHz-Mini-Fly-Air-Mouse-Wireless-Keyboard-with-IR-Remote-QWERTY-Keyboard-313544.html

I was just wondering if there's any iPhone or Android app that can be used to control Ouya (beside "Blue Board") ?

I ordered this:


Unsure if it will work, but I'm hopeful. If not I have other uses for it. Anyone try this yet? I preferred the bluetooth over the wireless dongle for range and keeping my USB port clear for my HDD. Not to mention the price was great for a bluetooth wireless KB/Mouse.
