'Zeemote' Bluetooth controllers to go into development

Develop sister site Mobile Entertainment reports that Zeetoo has received som $6.9 million in funding to develop its mobile gaming joystick (pictured).

The Boston-based firm’s Zeemote controllers communicate with mobiles via Bluetooth, and enable exchange of data and applications with the handsets. The company has also developed other mobile controllers, including a trackball and an accelerometer for games that are controlled with motion and gestures.

The funding round was led by Spanish VC firm Nauta, together with Commonwealth Ventures and Egan Capital. Zeetoo recently partnered with UK developer Finblade.
