Mobile Gaming Joystick Firm Zeetoo Gets $6.9 Million Funding


imageZeetoo, a Boston-based mobile gaming joystick technology firm, has received about $6.9 million in first round of funding. The round was led by Spanish VC firm Nauta, together with Commonwealth Ventures and Egan Capital. The company’s Zeemote controllers communicate with mobiles via Bluetooth, and enable exchange of data and applications with the handsets. The company has also developed other controllers, including a trackball controller for use as a mouse on a mobile phone, an accelerometer based controller for games that are controlled with motion and gestures, and a special car keyfob designed for use in location-based services (LBS) applications.

This is a brilliant concept. I've actually used this device to play mobile games (including our GuitarStar music based game) and it is amazing how much it increases the playability and enjoyment of the games. I can't wait to see what other great applications Zeetoo comes up with for this device.
